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.

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.

    Collaboration is at the core of what Dentex is building. We speak to some of the group’s leading lights to find out how they are making knowledge sharing work Giving up clinical time to mentor dental colleagues can be a tricky prospect to justify. Unless you are charging directly for your time, hours spent away from the practice – particularly away from the chair side – is time that is not bringing in any revenue. It can be hard to share knowledge within the traditional structure of dentistry. But Dentex is ...

  • The art of the deal: making sense of co-ownership

    What is it about Dentex’s vision for co-ownership that sets it apart? We take a closer look at the deal structure to find out why it’s worth considering Dentex isn’t like other dental businesses. When you join, for example, you don’t sell out: you become a partner. In the same way, it’s not corporate dentistry: it’s co-ownership. They are positive-sounding words, but what do they actually mean? Thankfully, they are more than just snappy branding. The concept is simple, but unique – and it’s ...

  • A fresh way of thinking

    Dentex is a relatively new player in the UK market, but it is already shaking things up. It has been described by some as part of the new wave of dental corporates, although many partnering dentists are quick to argue that it’s not a corporate, but something entirely new. Whichever side of the discussion you stand on, it’s clear that Dentex does things its own way, focusing on clinical freedom, the patient journey and a higher standard of care overall. But even that’s not really the whole ...

  • Building the future, together

    I've spent my life working around dentistry and finance. I qualified as a dentist in 1982 and practised for a while before spending more than 25 years building a specialised dental finance business in Australia, which I’m proud to say was a great success. There was so much happening internationally in corporate dentistry. So when I realised that there was a better model of dental business ownership that I could help introduce to the UK, it was something of a lightbulb moment. In Australia, the landscape of corporate dentistry is very ...
