The group has been acquired by the August Equity-backed dental company, Dental Partners. The acquisition brings the number of practices owned by Dental Partners to 27 with further acquisitions in the pipeline.
Neil Lloyd, CEO of Dental Partners comments on the sale, “We will only move into a new region when we can find an investment of high quality and scale. These are few and far between in the South, so we are delighted to have secured Dentapol with its well invested high quality practices and great team. This will be the platform for further investment in the South for Dental Partners.”
Simon Hughes, Managing Director – Medical at Christie & Co, who acted on behalf of Dental Partners in the acquisition comments, “We were delighted to have introduced this opportunity to Neil Lloyd and the team at Dental Partners. Dentapol is a high quality group of mixed practices in Dorset and gives Dental Partners a presence in the South of England from which it can continue to expand. The transaction further demonstrates the demand for quality small groups and the continued consolidation within the dental sector, which we expect to continue for the foreseeable future.”
