Buffer help

I have a series of points which I am trying to buffer (about 900). I want the buffer to be dissolved where they overlap but I do not want all the buffers to be a single feature. Is there some sort of split command for polygons which would allow me to turn each separate buffer into its own feature within the layer. For my end result I am trying to create a centroid point for each polygon.

I have posted a picture of what I am talking about. In this image there should be 11 different features but in fact there is only one.

Thank you
