IDH owners acquire The Dental Directory

The private equity owners of one of the UK’s largest dental clinic chains, Integrated Dental Holdings (IDH), have acquired The Dental Directory for an undisclosed sum.
The Dental Directory provides a range of dental products and services such as equipment servicing and repair.
This acquisition by Carlyle Partners and Palamon Capital Partners complements its purchase of Dental Buying Group (dbg) last year. dbg employs a membership model through which it provides training, compliance support, engineering services and equipment to 8,000 dental, GP and veterinary practices throughout the UK.
IDH chief executive Terry Scicluna said: “As part of the Dental Buying Group, we will have a comprehensive integrated consumables and service support structure in the UK for dental practices. We look forward to building on this in the future and further improving the quality of service provided to both Dental Directory and dbg businesses.”
The Dental Directory will remain as a separate company and the existing management team will stay in place.
Martin Mills, managing director of The Dental Directory, said: “The prospect of greater co-operation with IDH, which operates one of the largest dental healthcare practice networks in the UK with over 600 practices, and with dbg, will significantly add to our ability to provide a superior, cost effective service to our customers.”
