Benefits of being a Dentex Practice Partner:
Do you feel overloaded by the management side of your practice, with no time to focus on your clinical skills? Instead of selling-up and moving on, you’d like to become part of a bigger team which values your skills and experience? Maybe you need to release equity, but would still like to retain some investment in your business? Or it could be a lifestyle change; more time to be with your family or starting the move towards retirement?
Whatever the reason, joining Dentex as a Practice Partner can help to free up your time to focus on the parts of dentistry you enjoy. Your practice will become part of a Regional Partner’s group, providing the support to maintain and grow your business. You will work alongside fellow dentists, retaining an investment in your practice and continuing to play an important part in its ongoing growth. As a true partner, we share the growth in value created in your practice with you.
Letting someone else into your business may raise concerns if you are used to running things alone. This is why we developed a partnership model in which we co-invest with dentists as Regional Partners to develop their own network of dental practices. Dentex won’t impose on the everyday operation of a practice, but our help is there if you need it for mentoring, guidance, technical, financial, legal, regulatory and clinical support. Our dentists retain clinical control, but with the reassurance of a safety net and the knowledge that they are part of a network of like-minded dentists.
We don’t rebrand, so your business maintains its unique character and you retain your autonomy as a practitioner. We believe this is what makes our offering unique – you maintain your individuality, while still being part of a national infrastructure and support network. It is a true partnership, where both sides can benefit and grow.

“Having known Elaine Halley for many years, I was very interested when Dentex offered the opportunity to work alongside her as my Regional Partner. Elaine is a renowned dentist and I knew there were elements of what she does that would work very well in my practice in Marlborough.
In the past, I’ve received offers from other corporates but was always worried about the impact on personal attention to my staff and patients. We are an exclusive private practice in a market town and so our business relies on the local relationships we’ve developed over the past 20 years. I wanted to maintain and improve what I’d built, not lose what makes us unique.
The running of my practice was becoming more onerous and complex. Therefore, with support from Dentex in areas such as compliance and HR, as well as additional insight from Elaine, I think we are now in a better position to grow.
I want to enjoy my last years working as a dentist. I know the other Dentex Partners and I like who they are and to what they aspire. Dentex is providing a way for dentists to grow as a collective.”

“When I was approached by Dentex, I had been considering my succession plan. As I learnt more about their model and how it allowed me to work alongside other dentists, I decided the time was right. I liked that they didn’t want to fix what wasn’t broken, as can often by the case with more traditional corporates – they were more focussed on developing what I’d created. My Regional Partners now work alongside me in the practice and I continue to have a useful role to play.
Selling your practice is always a scary time; it’s your baby, and I had spent many years building something that was very special. It also carries with it the strength of my reputation as a dentist. And so, it was always a fear of mine whether I was doing the right thing or not. It is still early days, I will continue to be somewhat nervous until I’ve really seen the fruits of our venture. But I don’t feel any concern about my thoughts and opinions being sought and respected when it comes to the future of this practice. I like working alongside Mark, Stuart and Stan, we get on well and have a shared vision. I am confident they will facilitate taking my practice to the next level and beyond. What I always wanted was to see it succeed further and have the freedom to continue to work as long as I wished.
Joining Dentex has also given me the opportunity to clinically contribute to the wider group. Over my career, I have built a strong reputation as a high quality, top end dentists. To be able to mentor and teach the younger generation has always been important to me and it allows me a forum to do so.”
