Your dental support specialists

who We Are


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


We provide specialist services

Our team specialises in recruitment, growth advice and practice sales 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 wide range 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

"LANZ has made the transition from practice ownership to locum work an easy one for me. From guiding my partners and myself through our group practice’s sale to finding work around the country, LANZ  has been there all the way.

My latest job was for four weeks covering general practice absences in  Wanaka and Queenstown -  involving what would have to be the most dramatic daily work commute, bar none, over the Crown Range.

With LANZ, knowing that there is a working dentist in Tony Dey at the helm, gives the reassurance that they know what they are talking about when it comes to dentistry. General Manager Toni Marr is so helpful  and communicates regularly – it seems that nothing is too much trouble."

John BDS University of Otago

"Thanks so much LANZ for finding us an oral health therapist for our practice.

We absolutely love having her on our team."

Mindy Practice Manager, Auckland

"We had excellent and prompt service from LANZ during our practice sale.

We received professional advice on how to sell our practice and were still ultimately able to choose how we wanted it marketed, resulting in a good outcome for both parties."

Rob & Ann Practice Owners, Canterbury

"I have had the pleasure of buying a dental practice through your team. I wish to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for making the first step in this journey as easy as you possibly could.

During the Practice Buying Course I attended, I felt extremely well-supported by you all. Following it, I discussed my expectations with Kelly, and within two days, she almost materialised my expected practice into existence. A special word of thanks to Kelly for being extremely professional and approachable every step of the way. I cannot imagine having a better person to deal with during some of the challenges that understandably came my way.

Thanks again and I hope to continue our pleasant association in the future."

Pulkit Practice Owner, Auckland

"I cannot express my gratitude enough for the incredible service provided by this recruitment agency. In the midst of a much-needed time, they were able to send me a wonderful dentist to fill in as a locum. The dentist they sent was exceptional in their skills, knowledge, and professionalism, and went above and beyond to provide the best possible care for my patients.

The recruitment process was seamless and efficient, and the agency took the time to understand my specific needs and requirements. I was impressed by their attention to detail, their dedication to finding the right fit for my practice, and their commitment to providing outstanding customer service.

I would highly recommend this recruitment agency to anyone in need of staffing solutions. They are truly exceptional, and I feel lucky to have had the opportunity to work with them."

Isha Practice Owner, Hawke's Bay

"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 

" The LANZ.Dental service has been excellent. 

We will not hesitate to use your services in the future.

Thanks for your help." 

Debbie Employer Nelson

I’ve worked with numerous recruiters in the past and LANZ stood out above the rest. Toni was very helpful every step of the way in getting me to New Zealand… even through the Covid pandemic.

You guys are awesome!"

Andre BChD University of Pretoria
