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

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.

  • Care Without Worry

    Jatin Desai explains how selling to Dentex removed the pressures of running a practice but left him free to concentrate on the details I started Gipsy Lane 35 years ago now. These days, we’re a six- surgery restorative referral practice, but it was tiny when we first opened: a squat in a small bungalow, which I gradually expanded and extended until eventually we took it all down and constructed a purpose-built practice on the site. In that time, we’ve grown to have eight dentists working out of the practice ...

And yet earlier this year, Highland View joined the growing ranks of Dentex, becoming one of the first specialist referral centres to adopt the model of co- ownership. ‘The environment was ...
