Patient care focus

Realise potential

We are inviting you to discuss a potential partnership with National Dental Care - a partnership that will allow you to simplify your life, focus on patient care and realise the full value of your business.

Who is National Dental Care?

At National Dental Care (NDC), our mission and values are the driving force to providing superior dental care for our patients and exceptional partnership models for our partners. Founded in 2013, NDC started with just four practices located in Queensland. Since then, we have grown to over 70 practices, including the acquisition of Western Australian based DB Dental, and have become a leading provider of dental services throughout Australia.

Craig Stevens

Chief Executive Officer (CEO)

“We want our clinicians and practice teams to stay for the long-term and feel we have a compelling offering, working in partnership with our vendor dentists and their teams to provide industry leading patient care. Our clinical strategy and direction is driven by our dentists through the Clinical Advisory Committee, which also helps set out training priorities and corporate culture.

An integral part of our partnership is providing our partners and their teams with the time to focus on their patients, whilst we support them via our dedicated support offices and personnel located across Australia. The success of our partnerships to date is a result of working in close collaboration with our vendor dentists during earn-out and beyond.”

Our steady growth has been made possible by continually investing in our clinicians, practice teams, practices and support infrastructure. We have nurtured an environment that encourages collaboration, embraces change, and gives us the confidence to always strive for improvement.

Across our network we have over 400 clinicians, 700 practice staff, 60 support staff; a dedicated Clinical Advisory Committee and an exclusive in-house Training Academy. Our business model allows clinicians and practice teams to focus on delivering high quality patient care, whilst benefitting from our established support office functions including operations, marketing, contact centre, human resources, IT and finance.

Clinically Advisory Committee

NDC is firmly committed to ensuring the success of your business and the best outcomes for your practice team and the patients they look after. The Clinical Advisory Committee (CAC) is a key pillar of NDC, and was established at founding of the company to ensure that clinicians govern the clinical strategy and direction of the company.

Our CAC is made up of senior clinicians from each state, with over 150 years of combined dental industry experience.

The CAC ensures that the best clinical practices and standards are implemented across our network, clinicians and practice team members are well trained and also advises management on the latest in patient care and clinical technologies.

NDC Academy & Professional Development

Our ongoing focus on career development and clinical excellence is a key motivator for clinicians and practice team members to join and stay within the NDC family. As part of our commitment to learning and development, we have also launched our NDC Academy to streamline access to the latest clinical and non-clinical training courses, delivered both online and in-person.

We consider these opportunities as critical to both individual development and career progression, as well as to ensure we continue to deliver the best possible care for our patients.

Frequently Asked Questions

See what makes us different with a list of frequently asked questions from our partners:

We are different from other dental groups. Our focus is on growing our practice network and our individual practices in the right way, meaning that we partner with like-minded dentists that share our values whilst also continually investing in our support infrastructure to ensure we provide all our practices with the best possible support.

Our offers are structured in a way that recognises the full value of your business, even if impacted by COVID or similar events, as well as the potential for your business to grow in the future.

Not all dental groups reward future growth. We recognise the value in you and your business, and present you with an offer that reflects both your track record to date and future growth potential.

We listen to you and work with you to deliver the best earn-out option. We do not have clawbacks in our offers - we strongly believe clawback regimes do not provide a basis for a true partnership.
