Starting his journey at 12 years old, you would have found Luca in one of his dad’s five practices, helping make dentures for extra pocket money. He officially started as a full-time dental technician at age 17, aspiring to eventually become a dental prosthetist.

After working five years in the family business, he realised there was a massive issue around managing stock and completing the ordering in his family practices, and started looking for a solution to the problem. With no solution available to the Australian market, Luca quit his job in the family business and started Invedent with the help of his co-founder Bailey Moore.

Invedent is now Australia’s leading dental ordering and stock management platform. It is a highly intuitive, innovative, all-in-one system that helps dental practices all over Australia streamline their processes. Luca’s passion for helping dental practices has led to an impressive 100% retention rate from practice sign-ups and partnerships with ADA branches across Australia.
