COMPLETED: Project Sunset
Revitalise Dental Centre and Dental Precision Laboratory, completed July 2021
Christie & Co was engaged by Martin and Lucy Docking, who set up Revitalise Dental Centre and Dental Precision Laboratory – two high quality dental businesses located in a stunning part of the North Cornish coastline close to St Agnes.
In 1995, Dental Precision Laboratory was formed and in 2016, Martin and Lucy set up Revitalise Dental Centre offering high end general and specialist dental care to Devon, Cornwall and further afield. A few years after, Christie & Co was asked to offer advice on the best route to confidentially marketing and selling the business.
It was apparent that the whole business was worth more than the two parts, so the search began to identify a suitable dental company who would appreciate what Martin and Lucy had achieved and continue the development of the business. A confidential sale process took place, and a number of offers were received.
A well-established dental group was successful in acquiring the businesses, attracted by the quality of the business, the potential to grow and in particular, the ‘onboarding’ of a cutting-edge dental laboratory into their dental group at a time of rapid digitisation within dentistry.
The business was sold completely confidentially, and the sale completed in very quick time, no more than three months from initially being agreed.
Here’s What Our Clients Have to Say
“Selling your business will be the biggest and possibly the hardest transaction you will experience in your career. You need to present your business to the right people in the right way and that is exactly what Christie & Co did for us.
Their experience and professionalism generated a number of offers, all above the asking price. They were always in contact in and out of hours negotiating and pushing back to ensure we, the clients, achieved the best terms possible. They were happy to give their opinion but allowed us to make the decision that was right for us.
We strongly recommend Christie & Co to anyone thinking of selling their dental business. You only have one chance at the first impression and Christie & Co portray your business in the best way possible.” - Martin Docking – Former Owner of Revitalise Dental Centre and Dental Precision Laboratory
