Dental group, Portman Dental Care has acquired Plymouth Orthodontics, a specialist orthodontic practice in the Plymouth suburb of Mannamead, adding to its network of practices in Southwest England.
The business occupies a two-storey former residential property and since 2008 has been owned by principal, Dr Sanjay Kumar, who plans to remain with the business long-term to ensure continuity of patient care.
Kumar said: “I’m extremely thrilled to have completed on the sale of my practice and am really looking forward to working as part of the Portman team, helping to grow the business in years to come.”
Andy Price, M&A manager at Portman Dental Care, said: “Portman’s ortho division is bolstered further by this acquisition to bring us to 23 orthodontic specialist sites within Portman, out of the 155 practices we have in total.”
Business property advisor Christie & Co facilitated the sale. Simon Hughes, Christie & Co’s managing director, said: “Quality orthodontic practices are in high demand and Plymouth Orthodontics was no exception with a number of dental companies keen to acquire it. Dr Kumar has built a fantastic practice which will, no doubt, continue to thrive and grow under the Portman banner.”
