H.I.G. Capital has completed the acquisition of InterDent, a dental practice support organization (“DSO”). “The DSO model allows dentists and specialists to treat patients while reducing the administrative burden of running their own practices. We believe there is a big opportunity to further penetrate existing territories while expanding into new markets,” said Chris Laitala, a Managing Director of H.I.G. Capital.
InterDent is a dental practice support organization providing support services under the Gentle Dental brand name to over 145 affiliated dental offices employing more than 450 dentists in the following eight states: Arizona, California, Hawaii, Kansas, Nevada, Oklahoma, Oregon, and Washington. The company is based in Inglewood, CA (www.gentle1.com) (www.interdent.com).
“We are excited about the H.I.G. acquisition. Their investment supports our growth and enables the company to invest in existing offices while growing our retail platform. We have a shared vision to provide the best work environment to attract high-quality dentists and specialists, and offer an unmatched value and experience to the patient,” said John Steinbrun, President and CEO of InterDent.
