Our Whānau

The Collective has been designed by practising dentists. They have hand-picked excellent practices and clinicians to form the Collective community and together they have created our mission and goals.

He ora te whakapiri

The community is the heart of the Collective. He ora te whakapiri – there is strength in unity. Dentistry and owning a dental practice can be lonely, but not in the Collective.  

In our community we find that a problem you may have is a problem that one of us has overcome; a difficult situation you may be encountering is one that one of us has been through; and a goal that you may set will be a goal that one of us has achieved.

The practices and dentists that are part of the Collective whanau have full access to all of the Collective’s services; sharing and collaborating between all team members. We support every aspect of our whanau’s businesses as they work on their best practice goals and challenges – alongside and with the shared knowledge and support of the community.

The Collective also provides options for whānau for succession, selling, buying and investing.
