Scotland’s largest dental group has continued its rapid of expansion with four new practice acquisitions.
Clyde Munro Dental’s new acquisitions are Short and Associates Dental in Alloa, Stewarton Street Dental in Wishaw, Frazer Murphy Dental Clinic in Bishopbriggs and Dental Care Perth.
These mean that the group, which solely operates in Scotland, now looks after the oral care of more than 400,000 patients across 46 practices.
In addition to the latest recent deals, Clyde Munro also has several practices in the final stages of the acquisition process, so is anticipating reaching 50 practices in the next few weeks.
The group’s practices stretch from Orkney to the Borders, and it now has a presence in all of Scotland’s cities and many towns and rural hubs.
Jim Hall, founder and chief executive of the Glasgow-based group, said: “We’re thrilled to get another four excellent practices over the line, securing their futures and supporting their owners to step away from the day to day running of the practice either to focus on dentistry or in some cases retiring completely.
“Our model is now proving its merits, and we’d love to hear from more dentists who are contemplating their futures.”
Hall founded the business in 2015 with the acquisition of seven practices and the backing of private equity firm Synova Capital and Investec Bank.
It now comprises more than 200 dentists, 350 staff and 400,000 patients.
While adhering to Covid-19 guidelines, Clyde Munro has been able to keep all of its practices open and supported during the current lockdown.
