Dental Care Group was founded by three dentists with a passion for health care and an innate desire to serve local communities. Snehal Radia, Parish Vaid and Sanjay Shah began their vision in April 2010 with their first practice: Clacton Dental Care. They vowed to create a flagship practice for the local community. Their dedication, drive and commitment was relentless.
The practice was converted and refurbished to a six surgery practice. Sanjay worked at the practice six days a week seeing patients and managing the business. He also moved to a small flat in the local area to ensure the success of this practice. Today the practice boasts eight surgeries and continues to provide oral healthcare to the local community including Oral Surgery Services, Implants, Sedation, Facial Aesthetics, Hypnosis, Teeth Whitening, Short-term Orthodontics and many other popular treatments.
The Partners’ commitment to dentistry and ambition to provide excellent clinical care in the areas that need them the most inspired them to bid for a government procurement for dental services in the Southend area in late 2011. Against the odds, their drive and passion enabled them to win this procurement competing against very large corporates. They went onto create a purpose built, state of the art dental practice in Southend Town Centre offering NHS and Private dental care.
Feeling the drive to deliver excellent dental care at affordable prices, the trio went onto acquire two further practices in the Norfolk Areas of Watton (Clarence House) and Downham Market in 2012 and 2013 respectively.
In 2016 they acquired 7 further practices in Brentwood, Cambridge, Norwich, Great Yarmouth, Sheringham & Ormesby and also set up a Head Office in Brentwood to drive forward the vision of providing high quality and affordable healthcare for everyone. Having worked on a consultancy basis since April 2015, Mayur Pandya joined the Board of Directors in August 2016 as the Clinical & Operations Director.
Over the past 2 years, we have continued to grow and have acquired a further 10 practices over this period of time, including 2 Oradi practices that joined Dental Care Group in April 2018 (Oradi Wellingborough and Oradi Daventry) and they are based in Northampton.
At the end of August 2018, we moved into our new Head Office that is on Brentwood High Street. Due to the continued growth of the business, the Head Office team has grown massively, so moving into a bigger head office was needed for more space in order to accommodate our ever growing Head Office team.
The journey to strive to provide such care has been fraught with various challenges and each day the drive and determination is to better our services, nurture the staff, to treasure the relationships with our loyal patients, to humbly receive feedback and to reinvest time and energy into providing excellent oral health care. The dream continues…
