Since 2002, Samera has been working as dental accountants for dentists across the UK.
There are approximately 11,000 dental practices in the UK, and around 40,000 dentists on the GDC register.
Samera is a leading firm of Dental Accountants across the UK, with extensive knowledge and experience of dental accounting and tax issues. The firm has dental clients across the UK, from new Associate Dentists, to experienced practice owners, to large Dental groups across England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland.
We are members of and regulated by the ICAEW (Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales) and our team of friendly dental accountants are well versed in helping dentists with their accountancy and tax affairs.
We provide services to hundreds of dentists and dental practices each year and we are growing our reach across the entire UK. Currently, most dentists and practice owners use their local accountant who are probably dealing with a mixed bag of clients. Whilst some of these accountants maybe excellent accountants, most of them have little knowledge about the sector and its particular issues which puts their clients at a significant disadvantage.
In addition, many accountants claim to be dental accountants, but in reality, they only have a handful of clients. We take pride in that we deal with hundreds of dentists across the UK and work with some of the most successful dental groups across the UK, looking after their accountancy and tax requirements.
At Samera, we feel differ considerably to other accountants as we eat, live and breathe dentistry.
We love working with Dentists
Our considerable experience of working with dentists began back in 2003, when our founder, Arun Mehra, quit his high-powered City job and decided to build a firm that did things differently. Starting from his dad’s dining table he built the business one client at a time. Over a 15 year period, he slowly built a client base of dentists, helping them with their tax and accountancy needs.
In his first year of trade, Samera only had a handful of clients, now we are one of the largest specialist dental accountancy firms across the UK. Whether it is pulling together a spreadsheet to help our clients understand the profitability of their Associate Dentists, or negotiating with HMRC a tax issue, the Samera team have seen most things and can help Dentists through the minefield of tax, accounting and business. In addition, we provide commercial finance raising services, as well as help dentists, sell or buy a dental practice through our Dental Practice Sales part of the group.
Whether our clients are NHS or Private, Principal or Associate our team of dental accountants and tax advisors work with our dental clients closely to ensure they get the help they require, with a friendly helpful team.

How can you save more Tax? Dental Tax Advice from Samera
If you are seeking the best in Dental tax advice, our team can understand your individual requirements. Whether it is income tax, corporation tax, or other taxes that are affecting you, our team of tax experts can support you too.
We know all our clients work hard, therefore we understand you only want to pay the right amount of tax due.
In recent times, many dentists have been approached to enter various tax planning opportunities, some of them questionable. As a firm, we can certainly advise you and assist you in understanding your taxes and if such opportunities are worth considering. However, many a time, we feel some promoters are promoting opportunities that will cause problems for our clients in the future.
We will always tell you if we don’t agree with the tax planning proposed – honesty and experience is something we have in abundance at Samera. You may sometimes not like what you hear, but we feel honesty is usually the best thing for our clients, even if they initially may not want to hear it.
