Abano’s investment focus is on the $11 billion revenue trans-Tasman dental industry and the growth of our two dental networks – Lumino The Dentists in New Zealand and Maven Dental Group in Australia.
Our vision is to be the leading oral healthcare provider in Australasia and we are one of the largest trans-Tasman dental groups with practices throughout Australia and New Zealand.
Lumino’s first breath of life was in 2002 when it was purchased by Abano Healthcare. Back then it was called Geddes Dental – a group of 12 Auckland dental practices. When Abano took hold of Geddes, we had a clear vision about the great New Zealand workplace and business that it could be. Abano focussed on acquiring great practices and quickly enjoyed the additions of some important flagship practices which remain with Lumino today, such as Dental One in Auckland.
In 2005 the Lumino The Dentists brand was launched and Lumino’s successes continued to mount as it grew through acquisition. During this time Lumino began to really carve out its footprint on the dental industry and on New Zealanders as a whole: “We are all about providing amazing general and specialist dental care for our patients, attracting and selecting great quality clinicians and support teams, and providing everyone with opportunities that they wouldn’t easily get elsewhere in dentistry to train, to network, to share knowledge.”
Lumino reached 100 Lumino practices in May 2016, and its growth is continuing. It was one of the first dental businesses to advertise nationally on television, and the Lumino brand is now recognised in households all over New Zealand.
Initially launched in 2008 as a small group of dental practices under the name Dental Partners, Maven Dental Group is now part of one of the fastest growing trans-Tasman groups in Australasia.
This scale gives Maven the opportunity to give value back to its people and patients, which smaller dental groups or individual practices cannot achieve. Maven’s practices are supported by very experienced and capable teams in HR, Marketing, Finance and IT, enabling clinicians to focus on what they do best – provide great dental care for our patients. Patients will enjoy all the benefits of a local dentist, supported by a network of experts.
“At Maven Dental Group, we are dedicated to offering quality dental care from expert dental teams nationwide. We pride ourselves on consistency, patient comfort and professionalism so no matter where you are, you know you’ll be in safe hands.”
