Singapore based Oracare Group (“Oracare”), one of the largest dental groups in Southeast Asia, is the new holding company and international brand for a collection of successful national dental groups. Already present in 3 SE Asian countries, the group has ambitious plans for continuing its expansion across the region, despite challenges from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Oracare currently has 40 clinics across Singapore, Thailand and Indonesia under its belt, having added four new clinics in 2020 despite the unprecedented challenges brought about by the impact of the global pandemic. In Singapore the group operates under the Family Dental Centre (“FDC”) brand as well as the Expat Dental brand for serving the premium market. Further afield, the group has the market leading brand, MOS Dental, in Thailand as well as a presence in Indonesia through Tawa Dental Studio. Additionally, in Singapore Oracare operates a dental equipment and supply business called A2Z Dental and Medical Supplies.
Oracare is backed by experienced healthcare investor, White Cloud Capital, which has invested significant capital into creating and developing the group over the last five years, expanding through both greenfield developments and mergers and acquisitions (M&A) to create one of the largest dental groups in Southeast Asia. Having this experience behind them has seen Oracare Group evolve into a business with international standards of clinical and corporate governance led by a professional management team and infrastructure to support its continuing expansion.
Mr. Leon Luai, the CEO of Oracare, said: “We are proud to have developed our successful international group by following a partnership approach of joining forces with like-minded established and emerging dentist entrepreneurs who strive for excellence. It is good clinical practices and patient outcomes that drive good business results, not the other way around! As Oracare we provide our partners with the many benefits of being part of our international dental group, whilst supporting their personal ambitions. We are excited by the many opportunities in our home market whilst continuing to seek expansion across the Southeast Asia region.”
Mr Luai added: “A core focus for Oracare is the continuous enhancement of the overall customer experience for all our patients. While much has been written in recent times about the advent of digital health, we have been progressively digitising our processes for several years, with a primary focus on improving our customer-centric service. For example, developing our tele-dentistry capabilities to provide further convenience and optionality to patients. Additionally, we are continually investing in advanced equipment to improve treatments and deliver even better patient outcomes.”
