Q2-2018 Dental Services Update

Driven largely by the rapid expansion of strategic consolidators such as Smile Doctors Braces, a portfolio company of Linden Capital, there were a record 13 transactions announced during the second quarter of 2018. During the first quarter, KKR’s transaction with Heartland Dental, the largest DSO in the United States, signaled a strong vote of confidence in dental services market. During the second quarter, the largest DSO within Canada, Dental Corporation of Canada, announced its new partnership with L Catterton. With respect to fragmentation and demographics, the Canadian dental market shares many similar features to that of the United States. This landmark transaction provides another indicator of the strong growth prospects within the dental services segment.
