My Private Opportunities Mydentist

Your private opportunities at mydentist

You may not appreciate that mydentist revenue is split 50 / 50 between NHS and private dentistry. All our practices offer private treatments.

We are well placed to support you on your journey, whatever your end goal may be! Just over 60% of our Clinicians choose to have an NHS allocation - percentage splits vary by clinician and of course over time.

We will support you to manage your NHS capacity and grow your private portfolio. We will help you to optimise the value of your NHS and private patient base.
