Q1-2018 Dental Services Update

Merger & acquisition activity remained heightened during the first quarter of 2018 within the Dental Services sector. Several private equity-backed platforms continued expanding market share through add-on acquisitions and two new private equity platforms emerged with The Beekman Group’s recapitalization of Riccobene Associates Family Dentistry and Tailwind Capital’s investment in Lone Peak Dental Group. However, the most notable transaction of the quarter was KKR & Co.’s acquisition of Heartland Dental. The transaction is estimated to have been in excess of $2.5 Billion and signals a major vote of confidence in the growth potential for the Dental Services sector with one of the largest DSO organizations in the country continuing to raise capital.
