Who is National Dental Care?
At National Dental Care, our mission and values are the driving force to provide superior dental care for our patients and exceptional partnership models for our partners. Founded in 2013, National Dental Care started with just four practices located in Queensland. Since then, we have grown to over 80 practices, including the acquisition of Western Australian-based DB Dental, and have become a leading provider of dental services throughout Australia.
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.
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 are 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.”
The Clinical Advisory Committee
National Dental Care 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 National Dental Care and was established at the 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.

Frequently asked questions
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.
We are a company that is led clinically by our CAC, which is critical to delivering on our mission to provide superior dental care to our patients across the country.
We are truly committed to supporting each practice across every function.
NDC has and continues to invest significantly in our support infrastructure across all business functions such as operations, marketing, contact centre, HR, IT and finance, making the day-to-day running of a practice easier to manage and allowing the practice team and practice to grow.
We are also very focused on career development opportunities for all team members, which is delivered via our learning and development platform, the NDC Academy.
No. Our evaluation process truly recognises not only the value you have created in your business, but also the value you and your team will bring to NDC, and our attractive offers reflect this.
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.
How does NDC's earn-out period differ from other dental groups, and do you have clawbacks?
Will NDC change everything in the practice if we join you?
Will I maintain clinical autonomy if I join NDC?
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.
No. Unlike some other dental groups, we are focused on helping to grow your business in a way that's right for you, the practice and your patients. Similarly, to all our lead dentists, you will retain leadership of day-to-day operations of your practice.
Yes, absolutely. We understand the importance for clinicians to maintain their clinical autonomy in delivering patient care. Rather, we work in collaboration with you and your team to support the practice.
