Reimagining group dentistry, making lives better

PortmanDentex shares its mission to reimagine group dentistry and wellness enabling happier and healthier futures for patients, clinicians and colleagues.

If you weren’t already aware, Portman Dental Care and Dentex Health merged in April 2023 to form one of the most prominent providers of privately focused dental care in UK and Ireland. This week, with the reveal of the new name and brand for the business – PortmanDentex – they’ve shared its mission to reimagine group dentistry and wellness enabling happier and healthier futures for patients, clinicians and colleagues.

A smile for life

We know that good dental care matters. It’s a vital part of a healthier, happier life – and it matters to people of all ages. Across the UK and Ireland, patients rely on highly experienced clinicians who are empowered to do their best work. At PortmanDentex our practices are integral parts of their local communities. Our role is to support our clinicians and practice teams to deliver the best care possible – every day.

Today we support over 370 practices, with more than 2,400 passionate clinicians and 4,500 dedicated practice colleagues providing dental care for around 1.5 million patients every year. We are passionate about creating better ways to support our network of clinicians in delivering excellent care to our patients. We have the scale and commitment to make a lasting positive difference to the world of dentistry.

‘We’re excited to share with you our new brand – marking the next step in our exciting journey as PortmanDentex… We now have a huge opportunity to provide best in class care to our patients, an inspiring place to work for both our clinicians and colleagues and a sustainable platform with which to achieve this,’ said Julie Ross, CEO UK and Ireland.

For every practice and every smile

The key is partnership. We know that every community and every patient is unique. As a dental group we celebrate the individuality of our clinicians and practices. However we also use the benefits of our scale and commitment to deliver the best care possible for all patients.

In all of our work, we aim to deliver for our patients, our colleagues and our clinicians. That means supporting our high-performing practices with continual curiosity about what comes next, constantly imagining new possibilities and harnessing technology to innovate and improve the way we do things.

Dental health, brighter futures

We’re delighted to reveal our new identity. It’s based on positive partnerships – the power of working together to provide dental care that enables better health and happiness across lifetimes. Please watch our new film – we hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

We’d love for you to support us, so please do follow us on LinkedIn and keep up to date with what we’re up to and our future plans.
