Who We Are
QUALITY DENTISTRY, PROVIDED BY EXPERTS, AT YOUR FINGERTIPS
By design, Dent-Well® facilitates the implementation and operation of world-class dental wellness platforms for large institutions. Our program specializes in providing convenient dental care to otherwise robust campus health and wellness environments that may be missing the critical integration of premiere oral care. Fitness, primary care, mental health, and dentistry all have a place in caring for comprehensive health.
As a groundbreaking Dental Service Organization, we partner with select providers, payers, and stakeholders to round out the total health and wellness platform that is already in place. We also provide support and administration for each expert dentist so that they can concentrate on what is most important: treating patients.
Dent-Well was founded with the philosophy of providing layered expertise and precise division of labor to the onsite/near-site health services space. Our Founders spearhead the dual expertise of superb clinical care and optimal population health outcomes.
Our company leadership and Board of Directors are composed of dentistry experts, high-level corporate executives, and veteran university trustees. Together they guide our custom platforms to ensure success for each individual client. We believe that substance matters most when it comes to bringing true value to the patient and all of the valuable stakeholders interested in their wellbeing.
Who We Are
1980’s thru 2000’s
THE FOUNDATION (1980’s thru 2000’s):
The origins of Dent-Well® dates back to 1984 when Dr. Scott Coleman first began his private dental practice in Houston, Texas.
Coleman Dental has now grown to one of the nation’s elite private dental practices. Because of this extensive track record, the Dent-Well expertise in clinical quality control and a first-class patient experience spans over three decades.
Mission Statement & Core Values
Our mission is to work with institutional clients to facilitate state-of-the-art dental wellness programs that better align the interests of key healthcare stakeholders. We accomplish this mission by ensuring high-quality, convenient, and affordable dental care is available through customized Dent-Well offices.
Our core values were authored by Founder, Charles Lusk, and are shared throughout the organization and often extend to our clients. These values help guide our organization on a daily basis and ensure that we keep our patients and our institutional clients first.

I WILL PUT THE NEEDS OF PATIENTS AHEAD OF MY OWN AND AM COMMITTED TO PROVIDING THE BEST PATIENT EXPERIENCE POSSIBLE.

I WILL ASK FOR HELP WHEN I NEED IT AND I WILL HELP OTHERS WHEN THEY ARE IN NEED.
I WILL BE RESPECTFULLY TRUTHFUL WITH MY PATIENTS AND COWORKERS, ESPECIALLY WHEN IT IS DIFFICULT.
I UNDERSTAND ENCOURAGEMENT AND RELIABILITY BUILD TRUST AND TRUST EARNS INFLUENCE.
I WILL WORK TO PROTECT THE REPUTATION OF OTHERS BUT NOT AT THE EXPENSE OF MY OWN.
I WILL HAVE A POSITIVE ATTITUDE.
I WILL WORK HARD BE NICE AND BE HONEST!
Who We Are
Our Founders have long held the personal value of giving back to those less fortunate. Both have spent extensive time traveling and volunteering their time and expertise, both at home and abroad.
These values are why Dent-Well sets aside the priority of dental relief efforts both foreign and domestic. A major difference between Dent-Well and its peers is that we do not limit our philanthropy to efforts primarily underwritten by outside grants or other sponsorships. Instead, we allow care team members of the Dent-Well family to apply and volunteer their time and expertise to those who need it most.
Our institutional clients have rallied around this core value and the assurance that our partnerships and collective impact should extend well beyond the walls of our dental offices.
