Admire Dentistry-Setting up the practice

Admire Dentistry-Setting up the practice
March 15, 2021 Dentifit

I recently opened my first dental practice in Arana Hills. Brett and the team at Dentifit were recommended to me by a fellow dentist. They were incredibly helpful throughout the entire fitout.  They and their contractors delivered their work on time, with the highest quality and had great attention to detail.  I couldn’t be happier with Dentifit and their exceptional service.  They were easy to deal with, took the time to explain things and did everything in a professional manner. Dentifit understood my vision and made my dream practice a reality. I can’t thank them enough.

There are many questions to ask yourself when contemplating a new business venture… Where should I set up my practice? What is my budget? What are my requirements? What equipment do I need? What kind of fit out do I want? What’s my timeframe?

When our client, Admire Dentistry approached us they had many of these exact questions. We were able to assist Admire Dentistry with all of these aspects of their fit out and more.

At Dentifit, we offer a completely comprehensive service to all of our clients and ensure that you benefit from our years of experience and knowledge. Our team of experts are here to guide you through the following areas

– Finance
– Purchase/Lease Negotiations
– Equipment Suppliers
– Design & Construction
– Setting up Practice
– Plans for the future


Sorting out your financial budget and having a business plan is always your first priority. This will form the criteria for the selection process of the new premises and decide whether you opt to refurbish an existing premises, how big the premises needs to be and of course, your location. After we had established a budget with our clients at Admire Dentistry, the entire planning process fell easily into place.

The finance market provides many options when it comes to lending, however, medical/dental/veterinary finance specialists have the specific insight and expertise required for your needs and your business.

Both Medfin Finance & Bank of Queensland Specialist have long-standing reputations when it comes to supporting these speciality fields.

Alex used the services of Enrich Finance – a boutique mortgage brokering business, who utilised Bank of Queensland Specialist for the financing of the project.

Enrich Finance has over 20 years experience delivering holistic financial service solutions, and are committed to working with their clients to achieve deliverable outcomes to support both personal and business objectives

Amica Are Director, brokered all of Alex’s finance, taking the stress out of the process. She was always only a phone call away, and worked closely with both A1 Group and Dental Management Expertise, a cohesive team  providing Alex with holistic business solutions.
