In the past, running your own practice often brought substantial long-term financial benefits within a profession that allowed for business innovation and encouraged the merging of creative and scientific skills that rewarded dentists with an enjoyable career.
But we are seeing the expectations of compliance, practice management and regulatory demands dampen the spirit of many dental entrepreneurs. This growing burden is distracting dentists from their clinical focus and changing the way dentistry is delivered. Many dentists are now in their late 30s before they can own a practice and, with an average retirement age of between 50-55, the window for earning is becoming tighter and tighter.
The typical solution is often to consider becoming part of a dental corporate, but this can entail restricted clinical freedom, choice and diminished independence – stripping the practice of what made it unique.
We offer dentists a more flexible career and greater control as co-owners. Whether it is fulfilling a vision, learning new skills or simply transiting to a happier ending to their career – with the added bonus of an exciting and different way to carry on enjoying what you do.
Our co-ownership model is inclusive. Offering the opportunity to grow your business while still practising clinical dentistry without the day-to-day administrative workload – with key support from our many partners who have vast experience to share.
As equity holders, Dentex dentists are invested alongside shareholders ensuring they all have a common goal – growing value through a collaborative dental business for the benefit of all. It also means that they don’t just become employees but retain a degree of ownership and control in their practices.
We want to help dentists who are looking to work with leading professionals, to build a culture of co-ownership and share the benefits as well as dispense with the drawbacks of practice –empowering you to pursue lifestyle options yet to be realised while still involved with a practice you have grown, know and love.
Many partners are now thriving with our support and finding a reinvigorated enjoyment in their profession.
Dentex is proud of its own success story in its short history.
