At Maven Dental Group we believe that by sharing the knowledge and expertise of our clinical network, we are able to deliver a better experience for our patients, clinicians and staff. Not just patients, but clinicians and staff too. 

We’ve built a supportive culture which empowers our people to collaborate which enables them to deliver exceptional service and care as experts in the dental industry. 

Our Clinical Advisory Committee (CAC) is fundamental to the long term success of our business. The CAC is an independent committee dedicated to the clinical needs of our group, comprised of Maven Dental Group clinicians and chaired by Dr Fred Calavassy with the support of the MDG senior management team. 

Committee Chair, Dr Fred Calavassy, joined the CAC because he wanted to assist in not only the growth of Maven Dental Group but, more importantly, the provision of excellence in dental care to all patients, on a daily basis. 

“As Chair of the Clinical Advisory Committee, I don’t want to lose sight of the fundamentals of good clinical practice – excellence in patient care, satisfaction of the team in the provision of excellence and collaboration to further our pursuit of excellence,” Dr Calavassy said. 

The committee acts as a collaborative body for our dentists to provide meaningful input into and contribution towards the direction of our group and the industry as a whole. 

Continually reviewing and staying abreast of new procedures, products and technology whilst also providing best practice recommendations to the group, the CAC also provides solid clinical perspective across a wide range of issues. 

Maven Dental Group also facilitates the provision of support, guidance and mentorship opportunities as a priority for our hygienists. Our Hygiene Development Committee (HDC) meets on a regular basis to develop and implement processes to support practices in terms of their access to ‘best practice’ hygiene procedures. 

The HDC also considers relevant legislation, protocols and professional development guides to facilitate an integrated hygiene program in practices. 

With a background in dental hygiene and experience as both an educational consultant and a practice consultant, committee member Sarah Holslag welcomed the opportunity to join the HDC. Appointed to the Maven Dental Group team in September 2015 as a Clinical Analyst, Sarah is also responsible for advising and providing clinical guidance across all areas of the Support Centre.

“I consider my involvement on the committee and within the Maven Dental Support Centre to be a great opportunity in terms of my commitment to seeing the profile of hygienists raised across the country within the next 10 years,” Sarah Holslag said. 

All of this is supplemented by regional meetings which provide a platform for continuing education and facilitates the introduction of mentors to mentees with likeminded interests.  

At Maven Dental Group we believe passionately that everyone deserves the very best dental care, so we’ve built one of the country’s largest dental health organisations consisting of more than 85 general and specialist dental practices. 

As a network of discerning dentists and support teams who truly wish to provide the best care for all patients we believe our collaborative approach to building on our collective knowledge will ensure we do not settle for anything less than providing the very best in dental care. 


We are part of a dental network that not only consists of 85+ practices across Australia, but as part of the Abano Healthcare Group, we have a Trans-Tasman network of c.200 practices.

This scale gives us the opportunity to add value back to our network which smaller groups or individual practices cannot achieve. In addition, because they are supported by very experienced and capable teams in HR, Marketing, Finance and IT, our clinicians are able to focus on what they do best - providing exceptional dental care for their patients. 

Our people are experts in their fields, great collaborators, fair-minded and most importantly, humanitarians at heart. At Maven Dental Group, the future is bright.
