Independent dental group Riverdale Healthcare has acquired seven dental practices in Tyne & Wear, which were formerly part of the Perfect Smile group offering NHS and private services.

Riverdale chief investment officer Chris Aylward said: “This is an exciting investment as the location of the practices strengthens our proposition in the region. Having more practices in close proximity to each other is conducive to delivering outstanding care to the people in our communities. The acquisition has been a smooth process. The teams at Apposite Capital, Pinsent Masons and Hazelwoods have provided an outstanding service as we continue our growth strategy.”

Aylward added that the Perfect Smile group is focusing its development on its existing activity in and around the London area.

The latest acquisitions takes Riverdale to 34 practices plus a dental laboratory.
