About Our Dental Practice in Columbus, MS
Since July 1976, Dr. Bozeman has focused his Columbus, MS, dental practice on wellness dentistry as it relates to a patient’s overall health and well-being. Dr. Bozeman graduated from Mississippi State University in 1970 with a B.S. in Education, continuing on to receive his Doctor of Dental Medicine in 1974 from the University of Alabama School of Dentistry. From 1974-1976, Dr. Bozeman served in the United States Air Force Dental Corp and was honorably discharged at the rank of Captain.
He practiced in his original location until October 1997, at which time the practice was moved into our newly built dental office. Dr. Bozeman is the sole owner of the practice, and provides both general and cosmetic dentistry services. Our practice works with all dental insurance plans to help our patients receive the most benefits possible. We do not contract with any discount insurance plans.
Dr. Bozeman is an alumnus of the L.D. Pankey Institute where he acquired over 250 hours of continuing education and held a position of Teaching Assistant in 1992-1993. He is also an alumnus of the Dawson Academy. Over the course of his career, he has obtained over 2500 total hours of continuing dental education, many of which include hands-on clinical course hours. Dr. Bozeman is charter a member of the National Dental Practice Based Research Network, an affiliate of the National Institute of Dental Research.
Dr. Bozeman and his wife, Martha, are both natives of Columbus. They have three married children, and five grandchildren.
Practicing Complete Dentistry
Unlike most dentists, Dr. Bozeman practices the Concept of Complete Dentistry, which emphasizes a comprehensive, individualized approach to a patient’s dental care, beginning with prevention and early intervention. Contrary to what you might think, this doesn’t mean drill and fill every tooth.
Rather, the Complete Dentistry that Dr. Bozeman practices requires an understanding of every structural part of your chewing system, including your jaw joints, facial and temporal muscles, and teeth. In the long run, this could save you from years of pain, suffering and extensive costs for multiple and repeated dental work.
Analyzing the 10 structural and functional factors in the chewing system is the basis for every new patient examination so that Dr. Bozeman can properly diagnose and treat not only obvious problems, but also those that haven’t even shown signs yet!
Did you know that most dental problems are not painful at first, but can be identified by a trained dentist before any symptoms or damage occur?
As a graduate of The Dawson Academy, Dr. Bozeman is one of only 10% of dentists in the country who practices the Concept of Complete Dentistry. He can identify the signs of problems before any symptoms or damage occurs, which means you can receive treatments in a more conservative and less costly manner.
About The Dawson Academy
Just like most professions, there’s a range of skill levels among dentists based on type of advanced education, training, and philosophy of patient care. The Dawson Academy is an advanced dental education facility where dentists teach dentists to be better dentists.
Founded by Dr. Peter Dawson, The Dawson Academy teaches the Concept of Complete Dentistry. Although more time consuming for dental practices, Complete Dentistry results in more consistent, predictable and healthy outcomes for your oral health.
Dr. Dawson is one of the most respected and honored dentists in the history of dentistry. With a passion for teaching dentists to do it “right”, he developed the Concept of Complete Dentistry to provide patients with healthy, beautiful smiles that would function properly and serve them comfortably for the rest of their lives.
