Bupa Dental Corporation at a glance

Bupa Dental Corporation (BDC) is one of the leading providers of dental services with operations in Australia and New Zealand.

BDC is focused on partnering with leading general and specialist dental practices through a unique partnership approach.

The partnership model allows principal dentists to focus on dentistry and retain clinical autonomy while BDC provides a comprehensive range of support services and assistance in growing practice operations. BDC has significant expertise in practice management and operations.

In May 2013, Bupa acquired Dental Corporation through a Scheme of Arrangement.

Taking 100% control of Dental Corporation, the acquisition by Bupa gives BDC further strength and opportunity to expand our scope and provide dentistry to a larger number of patients.
