Selling Your Practice

Dentistry around the world is going through a revolution. This traditionally fragmented, small-practice profession is fast turning into an industry where practice groups are the norm.

It's easy to see why dentists around the world are opting for a group practice environment when you consider the following causes of frustration in self-practices:

  • Staff management

  • The sense of isolation and boredom

  • Administration and management

  • The fear that the practice won't fund the retirement the dentist wants

  • It's not dentistry that's the problem. It's the way the dentistry industry is structured


That's why we firmly believe that the future of dentistry is in group practices.

Lumino The Dentists was acquired by leading healthcare and medical services provider Abano Healthcare in 2002 and has since flourished, becoming New Zealand's largest dental healthcare organisation. Lumino The Dentists has the largest group of fully-owned practices in New Zealand. Our goal is to become the leading dental group in New Zealand, relieving dentists of the responsibilities and stress of business management and creating practice environments that enhance the quality of life of dentists and staff. This ultimately enables us all to provide the highest level of service and care to patients.

Our focus is on acquiring existing practices and making them members of our group. The group will have a number of brand strategies, each of which will be targeted at specific segments of the New Zealand marketplace.
When a practice joins us, we provide excellent employment opportunities to the existing dentists and staff and integrate their administration, accounting and practice management software into our centralised systems. All of this happens behind the scenes while the practice carries on doing business as usual. Neither dentists nor patients will notice any real change while the acquisition and transitions take place.

The information that can be found in the links above will give you a clear idea of the goals and objectives of our group and the compelling reasons why you should join us.

If you have any questions or are interested in taking the next step towards becoming a member of our group, contact Lumino The Dentists Managing Director Andy Tapper on the details below to arrange a meeting. The meetings are informal, confidential and free of any obligation. They are designed to give you a full understanding of any issues and enable you to make an informed decision about joining the most successful dental group in New Zealand.
