California Dentists

More than 95 percent of dentists struggle to retire and maintain their lifestyle, according to the American Dental Association*. Our mission: To help our members — California dentists and their staffs — be part of the five percent who can retire comfortably. We’ve been at it since 1966.


By delivering best-in-class retirement plans customized to the unique needs of our member practices and accompanied by top-notch investment advice. Even better — our plans do not have account minimums or trading costs.

We are a nonprofit with economies of scale

That means our services cost a fraction of what they would at a retail financial institution. We can provide access to institutional investments not typically available to the individual investor.

Personalized service

Most important: We know our members and we answer our own phones — no call centers here. We’ll work with you to identify your financial goals and objectives and develop an approach that gets you there.

Give us a call. Let’s discuss how we can help you and your practice achieve the worry-free retirement you’ve dreamed about.
