Like-minded dentists, living and practising in Devon

Our history

The group was formed in 1999 by a like-minded group of dentists living and practising in Devon.

Initially, the group was called the South Devon Independent Practitioners’ Group reflecting its origins in and around Torbay and the South Hams. However, over the past few years the membership has increased considerably and in order to reflect the widening geographical spread of our membership the group was renamed the Devon Independent Practitioners’ Group in late 2005.

Our aim

We aim to provide events, both professional and pastoral.

The group arranges clinical days and presentations given by high profile and respected speakers in comfortable surroundings . . . and quality refreshments provided!
