Specialty DSOs Are Tired Of “Overpaying” For Deals...

Specialty Dental M&A Market Update

5 years ago, Specialty Practices and Groups were all but ignored by the DSO buyers in the dental market.  But in recent years there has been a new wave of Specialty Specific DSOs that have hit the market.  These groups have partnered with some of the smartest private equity groups and best names in the industry to form their businesses. As these companies have enjoyed financial success, grown in scale, and recapitalized (thus providing excellent returns to investors), more traditionally GP DSOs have stepped up their interest in Specialty practices and groups as well.  As a result, there are more buyers for Specialty practices than ever before!

Higher Demand for Specialty Practice and Groups = Higher Prices

Posted by Kevin Cumbus on Feb 2, 2022 8:44:36 AM

After a wonky, bar belled M&A market in 2021 with most transactions all coming in the first and last quarter of the year (#thanksCOVID), in 2022 we witnessed the most active dental M&A market in history.  The market was driven by four major forces:

  • High demand for specialty practices

Entertaining An Unsolicited Offer?  It’s like Bringing a Knife to a Gunfight...

Posted by Kevin Cumbus on Oct 14, 2021 10:24:57 AM

Congratulations – you received an unsolicited offer. 

So did every other dentist and group in America.  If you have a practice with over $1M of collections or more than 1 location, it is safe to safe to say that you have been contacted by a buyer and possibly received an unsolicited offer from them. 

Buyers in our market love to connect with dentists and groups directly to help inform them of their EBITDA and value.  Why wouldn’t they!  They get to control the story, the financials, and the process.  This puts them in the driver’s seat in the relationship as they work hard to win you over and shield you from other opportunities in the market.  The less you know, the better for them.
