Q1-2022 Dental Services Update

The DSO market continued to experience significant activity in Q1-2022. Notable transactions include the sale of dentist-owned practices to established DSOs, the formation of new DSOs by private equity investors, and the exits of investor-owned DSOs.

Across these three transaction types, Provident has noted a continued acceleration in specialty dental consolidation. In early 2022, Shore Capital Partners formed a new OMFS-focused DSO, OMS360, and completed a transaction with Community OFS, a multi-state oral surgery practice. Additionally, Blue Sea Capital invested in SIMKO Specialty Dental, which provides Orthodontic and Pediatric DSO services, and Spark Dental Management acquired Children’s Dental Health.

While larger platform transactions are becoming more common, the volume of small and mid-sized, dentist-owned practice sales remains high both across general and specialty dental.

Provident expects that the proven success of investment across the DSO spectrum, consistent volume of practice transactions, and investor demand for quality practices will drive continued market activity and valuations.
