2019 State of the Dental Economy

Posted by Kevin Cumbus on Jan 20, 2020 1:02:47 PM

Whew – what a year! 2019 was a whirlwind of activity at TUSK and in the DSO economy. We saw a significant amount of change, growth, M&A activity and new entrants into the market that it is hard to keep track of. Before we dive into 2019, let’s reflect on how the year started by looking at how 2018 ended:

- We saw transformational growth of some of the enterprise level DSOs including Heartland and Pacific Dental both adding 100 practices or more and NADG growing the number of affiliated practices by 49% in just one years’ time.  New doctor-founded, debt-funded groups were popping up on our radar regularly.

- Attendance at almost all DSO conferences were up big – interest in the space was growing.

- We were getting a call from a new Private Equity Group interested in the DSO space a couple of times a month.

- At TUSK, we sold more practices than ever before, across all specialties at multiples well above our client’s (and frankly our expectations) and worked with well over 70 groups to help them START, GROW or SELL their practice or group.

Industry Experts Weigh In on Tax Law Changes and Potential Impacts to Group Dental Practices & DSOs

Posted by Perrin DesPortes on Mar 29, 2018 5:30:00 AM

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for a few months, you’ve probably heard that Congress passed sweeping tax reform for 2018.  The impacts of this legislation will be felt far and wide, but the general consensus is that the reform will be good for both companies and individuals.  If that bears out to be true, the economic outlook for the United States should be very favorable for the years to come.

But, what does is mean for the dental industry and for DSOs in particular?  Everybody’s got an opinion, so we asked some friends to share some feedback.

Here’s what they had to say…

Posted by Kevin Cumbus on Jan 13, 2017 5:24:58 PM

 Have you ever received an unsolicited call from someone offering to buy your practice? It could have been a friend in the community, a fellow dentist, or a new Dental Service Organization (DSO) that has come to town. What about a piece of direct mail from a company offering 100% of last year’s revenue for your practice? If you own a multi-practice group or DSO, it is likely that you have been contacted by a Private Equity Group or larger DSO looking to buy you out.
