OASIS Healthcare has bought Apex Dental Care, adding to its chain of NHS and private dentists, the group announced yesterday.
Oasis, which was bought by private equity firm Bridgepoint a year ago, is thought to have paid upwards of £20m for Apex’s 31 dental practices. Apex posted pre-tax profits of £714,000 on revenues of £13m in the year to March 2013, its most recent accounts show.
Oasis hired former M&S boss Stuart Rose as its chairman last September and bought Irish dental firm Smiles in April. The firm now has more than 300 dental practices.
