Dentex raise £20m investment despite industry disruption
UK dental partnership group Dentex has raised a further £20m in funding, led by UPL, which brings the total equity investment to date to £94m.
Launched in November 2016, Dentex was developed to provide overstretched dentists with an alternative to selling their practice by enabling them to share in the value created through a dental collective. The model supports autonomy at its core, allowing dentists to release equity and time, whilst retaining clinical independence. They seek to protect the uniqueness of each practice and provide support in all non-clinical functions to enable continuous growth. At the same time, partner dentists benefit from the support of some of the UK’s industry leaders. The first of its kind in the UK, Dentex was immediately embraced, gaining industry awards and recently securing an additional £20m of investment from existing shareholders.
