Buy in, don't sell out

Enjoy the support that comes from being part of a national group of dentists, whilst retaining your clinical independence and preserving what makes your practice unique.

Buy-in, don’t sell out. Our principals retain equity as partners in the group, so share in the wealth as the group grows.

Dentex provides the time, support and finance so you can get what you want from dentistry.

Our difference

Private dentistry is booming, but an increasing regulatory environment makes growth complex and is taking time away from dentists who wish to focus on clinical dentistry.

Traditionally, dental corporate models have been focused on acquiring dental practices and managing their expenses. Dentex is different – our focus is creating a partnership of dentists who can work together and learn from each other, free to control and develop the clinical aspects of their own practice.

Our dentists retain equity as shareholders in Dentex, so have a mutual interest to see the group grow and thrive.

We’re not looking for people who want to get out of dentistry. We want people who see their future in dentistry, are engaged and wish to evolve their role as part of a broader partnership. By Dentex taking away the administrative burden, our dentists continue to involve themselves in the parts of the practice they enjoy.

Become a part of our story and we will help write yours.

Good for you

Good for you

Whether it’s expanding your portfolio of practices, relinquishing the burden of day-to-day management, developing skills or spending more time with patients; we tailor our involvement so our dentists can focus on the parts of dentistry they enjoy while we support them in those they don’t. Dentex is a true partnership in which we focus on your independence but share in the clinical, financial and operational demands to the benefit of the whole group.

Good for your team

  • My three years with Dentex

    Three years ago today, the final documents were signed and I was no longer the owner of my Harwood Dental Practice. Dentex became a new owner. It was a big step away from the practice I had owned for 12 years, but I was not worried, I was excited. Mitesh Badiani recommended Dentex to me a year earlier and his recommendation was all I needed. I knew that over 12 years, I had gotten Harwood to the point where I was happy, with a very good team and lovely patients. ...

    Eben Van der Walt explains how partnering with Dentex has given him the freedom to practise the dentistry that he loves.

A couple of years after arriving in the UK, I started working as an associate at Portmore Dental in ...
