Dr. Phil Wenk joined Delta Dental in 1997 after practicing dentistry for 20 years and led as President and CEO from 2000 through 2023. His leadership at Delta Dental was marked by a period of significant growth and expansion.

Sam Hutcheson, Chief Executive Officer and Co-founder of EPP, states: “Dr. Wenk's clinical background, deep understanding of the dental insurance industry, and his proven track record in executive leadership will be invaluable as we seek to create new relationships with insurance carriers and strive for the best possible outcomes for our partners and their patients. We are confident that Dr. Wenk's contributions will be instrumental in guiding Endodontic Practice Partners towards a future of continued success and innovation.”

Dr. Phil Wenk comments, “During my career, I have been a tireless champion for dentists, their patients, and for broadening access to dental care.  In my new role with EPP, I look forward to continuing this work by bringing my experience and insights to EPP and working with the entire EPP team to achieve their mission of being the trusted practice partner for endodontists, their staff, and their patients.”
