Welcome to


Your dental support specialists

who We Are


Established in 2002, by Kiwi dentist Tony Dey, LANZ provides recruitment, practice sales and growth advice for dental professionals across New Zealand.


We provide specialist services

Our team specialises in recruitment, practice sales and growth for dental professionals.

Today the dental industry is dealing with single practices through to large corporate groups, who are changing the dynamics. There are some strong boutique practices that are still flourishing, especially those with a clear point of difference.

And then there are some rural clinics which are actually still turning patients away. Tony and the team have built relationships with practices all over New Zealand over the past decade - the big and the small - literally from Kerikeri to Invercargill. 

LANZ.Dental can help

Whether you're looking to immigrate to New Zealand to work or you're looking for a new challenge or the next step in your career -  LANZ.Dental can help. We offer short and long term, permanent and locum positions to New Zealand graduates and overseas trained dental professionals. 

Currently, we have a large number of excellent job opportunities for qualified dentists, hygienists, oral health therapists and dental support roles around New Zealand.

Or maybe you're thinking about your exit strategy or want to buy your own dental practice, then let us help you. We have years of experience successfully helping dentists through the buying and selling process.

LANZ Testimonials

What our clients say

"I would like to say a big thank you to LANZ for their perfect communication and efforts put into my successful job search.

I really appreciate it as they have made it very smooth and stress free for me."

Kimberly BDS University of Otago

"We are extremely grateful to LANZ.Dental for the guidance they provided us as we navigated the process of selling our dental practice. Once the decision to sell was made we handed the practicalities over to the LANZ team, and they managed the valuation of the practice, along with the marketing and eventual sale of the practice.

LANZ took away the stress of selling and made sure everything went smoothly. "

Gareth & Sara Practice Owners, Tauranga

"LANZ helped us to source a suitable locum in an extremely tight labour market. They kept us updated with potential candidates - only sending those vetted extremely well for the position description given.

Having a professional recruitment firm specifically for the dental profession is a godsend, as it takes a huge amount of time and effort to recruit. I highly recommend the services provided by LANZ.Dental."

Vikki Employer Auckland

"LANZ.Dental were excellent at helping me secure a Locum position and understanding of my circumstances. I had a couple of interviews within days of contacting them and started work the following week.

I had a great experience working in Napier."

Jason BDS University of Liverpool

"Really appreciate the support of LANZ.Dental in finding us a locum dentist when we needed help. Jason is an amazing dentist.

Thanks Toni and the team, we won't hesitate to use you again."

Sundar Employer Napier

" I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend LANZ.Dental to any Dentist looking to move to NZ and find a job. From Day 1 the team has been an invaluable support, guiding me through the ever changing landscape of immigration during a pandemic.
I don’t think I would have been able to navigate the process and find such a great job without their help. Thank you! "

Jennifer BDS  University of Glasgow

Thanks for your help."
