The group comprises two mixed practices in Folkestone and Dover, a private practice in Peterborough and a Harley Street clinic. Three of the practices – Harley Street, Folkestone and Peterborough also include TDC implant centres, where dentists offer the award winning same-day implant service. This innovative treatment eliminates the need for multiple surgical procedures.
The business was marketed through Christie & Co’s specialist dental team and Bupa Dental Care emerged as the preferred buyer. It adds the four practices to its existing portfolio of over 470 practices across the UK and Ireland.
Drs Anthony and Michael Zybutz will remain at the business for the foreseeable future and focus on delivering high quality and transformative dental care at the Harley Street clinic in London. They comment, “We are very proud of our team and the reputation that we have built over many years. The whole team is looking forward to working with Bupa and meeting our new clinical colleagues.”
Gabriela Pueyo, General Manager of Bupa Dental Care comments, “We’re really excited to welcome Total Dental Care to the Bupa family. Their innovative work in dental implants is market leading and will be a valuable addition to our network.”
Simon Hughes, Managing Director – Medical at Christie & Co who managed the sale comments, “The sale of Total Dental Care confirms the strong demand for quality small groups. Following a confidential marketing campaign, a number of financial buyers and existing dental operators expressed interest and we were delighted to sell the business on behalf of Anthony and Michael Zybutz to Bupa to continue its expansion.”
