The Adent group was founded in 1997 with the first clinic being opened in Ecublens which is part of Lausanne. The group has subsequently grown steadily from the 9 clinics operating at the time Hesira established its partnership in July 2014 and now comprises 20 clinics. Adent is the only dental clinic group to operate in both the French and German regions of Switzerland and is now the second largest chain in the country.
Adent offers a full range of high quality general and specialist dentistry treatments and is also a leading provider of emergency dental services. The group has a very high rating for patient satisfaction and the use of strong branding and a modern retail design for the clinics has proved very attractive to new consumers. A number of the clinics have been developed as new sites within commercial centres and all clinics operate extended opening hours including weekends.
