Lumino Dental Adds Wellington To National Network


Lumino Dental Adds Wellington To National Network

Lumino Care Dental, New Zealand’s largest dental network, continued its national rollout today, with the acquisition of Karen Harris Dental in Wellington.

Lumino, the dental brand for leading healthcare operator and investor, Abano Healthcare Group, now has 17 dental practices in Northland, Auckland, the Waikato, and Wellington, with over 60 practicing clinicians. The Wellington acquisition will add revenues of $1.2 million to Abano’s dental sector, and bring a further three dentists and two hygienists into the Lumino group.

Abano’s dental strategy is to acquire quality practices in locations across New Zealand. Existing dentists and staff remain with each practice and Lumino branding, marketing initiatives and management processes are introduced for the benefit of customers and staff.

Mr Frank Janssen, general manager of Lumino, said: “We now have a network of quality dental practices across the North Island, and are on track to establish a national network in the next two years.

“Dentists are recognising the benefits to be gained from becoming a part of a high quality dental group, and we have a number of further acquisition opportunities under investigation.

Lumino was launched by Abano Healthcare in early 2005 and offers leading edge business practices and targeted client marketing. It is the only dental brand in New Zealand to reward its patients for their custom, by offering New Zealand’s most widely recognised and sophisticated loyalty programme – FlyBuys.
