Keeping it Local,
from Our Family to Yours
Since its founding in 1978 by Dr. Glenn Ashmore as a private practice, Dental Depot has remained a family-owned and operated dental practice. Although we have grown over the years, we remain dedicated to preserving our ties to the communities we live and work in, and to treating your family as a part of our own.
Our goal is to provide every patient – adults and children alike – with the high-quality, affordable dental care they need and deserve. At every Dental Depot location you will experience a clean and relaxing office, friendly staff and highly trained, compassionate doctors, assistants and hygienists. With Dental Depot, you can always count on receiving a common sense approach to your dental needs, and the information required to make an informed decision about your own care.
But Dental Depot’s commitment to the communities we serve extends beyond our walls. We offer a wide range of community support including: a free dental educational program for area schools; non-profit, educational and community sponsorships (Keep Oklahoma Beautiful); holiday parades and other community events. We feel the biggest reward is the realization that we’ve made a significant change in someone’s life and we hope to continue to grow as an integral part of your life and community!

Our Signature Train Depot Replicas
The original cottage-style dental practice was very different from the Dental Depots we know and love today. At the height of Oklahoma City’s Oil Boom, and with office space in short supply, Dr. Glenn decided to convert a residential duplex into his first office. The original office was located in the historic Linwood neighborhood at Northwest 23rd Street and Drexel Blvd., which latter came to be home to today’s Central OKC location.
Train memorabilia and antiques lined the walls and exterior of the original building, similar to how they do today, complete with a working model train that ran along the wall through the patient operatories. Over the years, these unique features have become synonymous with the name Dental Depot, and its fun and comfortable atmosphere.
Then, in 2001, disaster struck. An electrical fire destroyed much of the internal structure of the office and led to a complete rebuild from the ground up. It was then that the classic 19th century train station architecture was utilized to create the iconic dental depot look. Mustart-yellow slatted exteriors, clay-red roofs, and the lofty clock-tower were all a part of this reconstruction. Whether it is a train running from room to room, or an amazing collection of train memorabilia, there is always something interesting to capture your attention.
Dental depot’s presence in the Linwood community has been mutually beneficial. Many beautification efforts in the form of new lamp posts, benches, and seasonal landscaping of road medians have been a direct result of the office’s presence and community outreach. These efforts have resulted in accolades by the OKC Beautiful organization, a Keep America Beautiful affiliate.
