Over a 12 month period, our consultants will be there to assist and guide you to make sure you start your dream practice.

“Setting up a squat dental clinic can be a very daunting task. With so many different facets to the project, financing the project can be potentially stressful especially in the current climate. However, Nigel at Samera made this so easy for us. Always on hand to answer our queries, talk us through the process step by step and presented us with all the different options. It has been a pleasure to work with Nigel and the rest of the Samera team and I have no hesitation in recommending them to all my colleagues.”

Case Studies

Better Terms and Flexible Payments

“I cannot recommend Nigel highly enough. My partner and I have been corresponding with Nigel when setting up our squat dental practice to organise the best finance loans and equipment deals. He has a wealth of knowledge, trustworthy, straight talking and always responds quickly to questions. Thank you Nigel and team.”

How it Should Have Been Done

“After attending the Samera Bootcamp last November, I set about starting up my own practice. Nigel was very helpful in setting up finance and giving good all round advice about the process, actually well beyond the scope of a financial advisor- wouldn’t hesitate to recommend!”
