Private Equity Investment in Oral Surgery & Specialty Dental Practices


Driven by market inefficiency, ancillary opportunity, and broader economic headwinds, healthcare private equity consolidation has been a leading force of change within healthcare for over a century. Starting in the late 1990’s, the primary entity behind this consolidation has been outside investors specifically, healthcare private equity investors, looking to partner with clinically strong providers and create regional and national platforms. Leveraging size and scale, these private equity funds invest alongside providers in medical specialties such as Oral Surgery and Specialty Dental practices to help grow in existing and new markets.

Intrigued by a fragmented market and the potential for scalability, private equity firms are turning to Oral Surgery and Specialty Dental practices for new investment opportunities. The market continues to show room for new entrants as multiple new platforms have been founded in the last 12 months inclusive of P3 Oral Surgery (represented by Physician Growth Partners) in their partnership with Healthedge; all while seeing 30 add-on transactions with existing OMS platforms.  As new platforms enter the market, PGP expects a continued surge in add-on level transactions across the country.

The Physician Growth Partners healthcare investment banking team has successfully guided hundreds of independent healthcare providers through private equity processes, with a strong focus on helping our clients find a partner that will set the practice up for long-term success in their healthcare private equity journey.

Our team at PGP focuses on a number of key areas to ensure our clients are successful in the pursuit of a healthcare private equity partner:

  • Develop the appropriate financial modeling to position maximized cash flow and future “credit” for ongoing initiatives that are driving growth
  • Determine the right mix of potential buyers (including both strategic acquirers and private equity groups) and implement a strategy to reach them
  • Managing buyer marketing, bid solicitation, and negotiation
  • Position the client to meet relevant potential buyers with strong offers that address cultural fit, strategy, and alignment
  • Manage the transaction process to maximize leverage with potential buyers
  • Assist client in running a full due-diligence process on buyers to ensure the best partner is selected
  • Negotiate key economic and structural deal terms, leveraging PGP experience within the Provider-Led healthcare services space
  • Facilitate all pre-closing due diligence to ensure a seamless process that does not take away from the day-to-day business while ensuring the highest probability for a successful close

Client Testimonial

We did a national search for a transaction advisor, and after a long search we decided to hire PGP. They were very professional from the beginning and explained the process very well. In addition to a thorough pre-market valuation of our practice, the PGP team was always available to address any questions and concerns we had, were fierce negotiators on our behalf, and overall helped make a very complicated process quite easy. I would highly recommend PGP to any Oral Surgery practice owners looking to explore strategic private equity partners…actually, I would love them to come and work on my team!
