Discover how DCA can help you.

Founded in 1991, Dental Care Alliance is a unique dental support organization created by dentists, for dentists. We partner with experienced dentists who want to focus their time and energy on patients, not the day-to-day hassles of running the business. We’re now one of the largest dental support organizations in the country.

We leverage our size, capabilities and expertise to accelerate practice growth while controlling costs. It’s a simple “economies of scale” strategy that delivers:

  • Better pricing on supplies, equipment and services
  • More favorable third-party payor negotiations
  • Professional marketing support and assistance
  • Back-office administrative and accounting support
  • Best practices for use across entire office network
  • Ready access to capital and management resources
  • Training and development programs
  • Expert HR management and recruiting support

Start your career with us. Love your career with us.

Starting your own practice fresh out of school means a huge capital investment in real estate, equipment and staff — right when you are still learning the ropes of running a practice, building a patient base and paying off student loans.

DCA gives dentists the opportunity to start earning a significant income from day one. In fact, most of our dentists earn well above the national average. DCA-affiliated dentists also benefit from our successful business model, existing locations with established patient bases and new-patient flow, a diverse set of practice types and markets and opportunities for continued education in the areas of dentistry that most interest them. Professional growth is also nurtured by mentoring from the experienced dentists and specialists in DCA-supported practices.

But just as important as what DCA-affiliated dentists gain is what they lose. Free from the hassles of running a practice, they can focus their attention on providing quality care to patients. For those who still dream of owning their own practice after experiencing the freedom DCA provides, we offer the potential of future partnership opportunities.

You’ll avoid all the administrative and human resources hassles of running an office and be free to focus on patient care.

And if you’re still interested in owning your own practice after you experience the freedom that comes from being a DCA affiliate dentist, we have joint venture opportunities for selected dentists.
