The Association of Dental Groups

IHPN are proud to host the Association of Dental Groups (ADG).

Who are the ADG?

The Association of Dental Groups (ADG) is the trade association for dental groups in the UK.
Our members include 19 of the largest groups of dental practices in the country, representing over
10,000 clinicians delivering NHS and private dentistry to more than 10 million patients every year.

Their purpose

The Association of Dental Groups (ADG) works with and on behalf of our members towards
improving the working environment for groups of dental providers of oral health care.
We will work towards sector improvements for dental groups, including sharing good business
models and consistent best practice, supporting innovation, and encouraging the investment and
skills development of all dental professionals.

Our purpose is to:

  • Work with our members and represent their views objectively and equally in current
    debates on oral health.
  • Proactively influence policy and take a solution focussed approach to creating the most
    supportive environment for dental groups to provide the highest quality dental care.
  • Ensure policy makers make evidence-based decisions.
  • Disseminate knowledge across the dental group sector.

Their vision

The ADG’s vision is to be the main representative for dental groups and corporate providers. We
will use our collective knowledge and expertise to drive change and support appropriate decision making by government and public agencies for the ultimate benefits of patients and all dental
professionals in the UK.
