Welcome to Impression Dental Group
Your network. Your way.
We are a group of industry professionals committed to delivering exceptional patient outcomes and growing dental practices. Through our unique practitioner partnership model, you can remain actively involved in the clinic and benefit from a range of industry-leading support functions such as recruitment, payroll, marketing, IT, procurement, and finance to support growth. All up, we’re a network dedicated to your ongoing success – let’s get it started.
WHY JOIN THE NETWORK
We’ve all heard how things can be better together, but we here at Impression Dental Group are the embodiment of that. Broken down, there are three simple reasons why we are growing fast as the network of choice for dental clinics:
1. We're for you
We really do mean it when we say: things are done your way
The thing we pride ourselves on is making sure that you remain you, with us. Partnering together is a chance to get away from the ‘day to day’ of running and growing a clinic while keeping the benefits of autonomy and your own patient base. We believe that co-owning practices with local dentists helps them grow further than they could, without losing the family practice feel or way of doing things that got them to where they are in the first place.
2. We're for practices
Our network becomes your network, from knowledge sharing to ongoing resources.
Being backed by some of Australia’s dedicated healthcare investors means that support from the network is available to you that otherwise wouldn’t be. From attracting talent, to offering further PD, to centralising a support team of field experts, we are more than the sum of our parts and with Impression Dental Group, there are many parts working together to ensure you have all you need for your practice.
3. We're for patients
Last but definitely not least, the patients are at the heart of all we do.
We may be big (and growing fast), but patients are still what we focus on across the network: outstanding care, quality and service. We only partner with practices that also believe in patient-first mentalities and that is how we have maintained a high calibre of performance excellence. Word of mouth is one of the best ways to build on that best practice we stand by, and we look forward to those professionals – hopefully like you – that share that same value with us.
More on what makes Impression Dental Group impressive for careers
Whether you’re starting out or looking for that next step, our practices are made for life-long professionals
Graduates and new dentists
Finding that first fit when you’re coming into dentistry can be difficult, as practices need to invest time and effort in helping you grow your patient base as well as your skills. That’s why we support our clinics with new-dentists playbooks, helping build you up faster than many other companies can.
Whether you’re looking for a change or something you can call your own, our wide network can be perfect to support you in transitioning smoothly to that next career step. Get in touch with our team for a confidential discussion and we can let you know before the rest of the market should any non-advertised roles become available.
Owners and exits
Whether you’re looking to finish strong with your career, or planning to exit and hand over the reins, we can help with transitions that leave you rewarded and your patients in very capable hands. From quick changes to tapering things down over months or even years, we work with you your way to ensure work, life and balance in all things.
HOW WE HELP YOU
It’s one thing to talk about being partners – quite another to do.
That’s why we pride ourselves in not being your typical “corporate” but rather believe in letting you do what you do best and us doing what we do best. See below just some of the ways we do what we do – and how it helps you.
The Practice Partner Program
The Practice Partner Program is an opportunity for our dentists to invest along side us in their local clinic, which we believe leads to a more sustainable healthcare model – something unique within Australia.
Clinic Shares entitle you to share in the profits of the clinic, so you share in the upside of building a strong clinic
You have full clinical autonomy and a supportive business partner to help grow your clinic
We help manage the day-to-day aspects of the clinic, so you don’t have to worry about being overburdened with the admin of running the clinic
We bring the ability to continue investing in recruitment, equipment, fit-outs etc. , to help you grow the clinic

JOINING THE NETWORK
Perfect – here’s the next steps.
1. Getting to know each other
After hearing from you and your interest in join a local practice or bringing yours in, like any relationship, it’s important we get to know other first.
This is a chance for you to understand what it’s like to be a dentist and Practice Partner in our network, and when we’re talking in these early stages, we’ll encourage you to reach out to some of our members to hear from them personally.
2. Finalising an agreement
If it all looks good to you and us, the next step is diving into the details as to what the next weeks, months and years look like together.
This is where we sit down and form an agreement as to what’s needed from us for you to succeed and reach your goals – and then getting all down on paper so we can start the journey together.
3. Managing a smooth transition process
Once you’re in, you’re in, and we provide constant support to ensure everything is how you imagined it from the team, the practice itself, the patients and us.
We’re here for you and whether it’s your first day as a dentist with us, or final as you hand over the keys to your practice to the next generation, we’re here to make sure it’s done with support, ease and a strong partnership behind you.
