Sanjay Shah

CEO of Dental Care Group

Sanjay is passionate about delivering the highest quality of dental care at the most affordable prices.

Sanjay qualified as a dentist himself from the world renowned Guy’s King’s and St Thomas’ Hospital in London. He has since practised as an associate and further enhanced his clinical skills with various post graduate courses.

Unable to ignore the innate entrepreneurialism burning within, he recognised a clear gap in the market for high quality dentistry at affordable prices. “Why not unite services under one roof? NHS and high end private treatment? A one-stop shop. Why not provide private levels of customer service on the NHS?” He is proud of the fact that the Dental Care Group practices consistently provide better levels of customer care and service to their patients than the majority of private practices.

Sanjay bought his first practice in 2010 in Clacton-on-Sea to set the benchmark for the things to come. He moved to Clacton for two years to bring his vision to life. Whilst practicing as a dentist six, sometimes seven, days a week, he created the first Dental Care Group practice. The practice was converted, extended and refurbished from a small three surgery traditional NHS practice to a state-of-the art flagship practice, boasting eight treatment rooms and has been awarded multiple NHS contracts due to the highest level of care & professionalism being provided at the practice.

He led the team at Dental Care Group to win an NHS procurement in Southend-on-Sea through a rigorous tendering process, and strategized the construction of a state of the art squat practice in Southend Town Centre in 2011. The practice has since further expanded and gone from strength to strength.

To continue the vision, Sanjay led Dental Care Group through the expansion into the Norfolk area of Watton and Downham Market in 2012-13 and in 2016, oversaw the acquisition of seven further dental practices, whilst simultaneously managing brand development.

Sanjay still practises clinically one/two days a week. The company mission statement, vision and philosophy is at the heart of all that he does and through this endeavours to deliver his dream of creating an amazing and rewarding working environment where his team are able to be providers of the best dental care in the country.
