Meet the Speakers:

Carlos Clark: Carlos, a dentist since 1991, became a partner in his first practice in 1993. After selling it to Oasis Dental Care in 2003, he joined four partners in building Rodericks Dental Partners. With the new Dental Contract in 2006, the company experienced significant growth, going from 4 to over 50 practices by 2014, all greenfield sites. As Business Development Director, Carlos played a crucial role in the success, managing NHS contracts.

The company's expansion continued with a successful exit, partially selling to Close Brothers Private Equity in 2017 when it had over 75 sites. Another growth phase led to a subsequent sale to Ven Cap in 2022, doubling its size to over 150 sites, marking Carlos's full exit. Throughout, he maintained his passion for dentistry, worked as a dentist and postgraduate trainer, and now brings over 33 years of experience to a new dental business.

Nick Travis: Head of Entrepreneurs at Evelyn Partners, Nick assists a broad range of clients in structuring long-term financial plans and discretionary portfolios. He works closely with tax and financial planning professionals to ensure all elements of a client’s wealth are considered.
