Clyde MunroClyde Munro has acquired four more practices…Dentistry Scotland picks up the story.

With four new practice acquisitions, Clyde Munro now counts 400,000 customers across its network of dental practices in Scotland.

Dedication to Scotland is paying off as the country’s largest dental group has continued its impressive rate of expansion – with four new practice acquisitions.

The group also has a number of practices in the final stages of the acquisition process. They are anticipating reaching 50 practices in weeks.

New acquisitions

  1. Short and Associates Dental in Alloa
  2. Stewarton Street Dental in Wishaw
  3. Frazer Murphy Dental Clinic in Bishopbriggs
  4. Dental Care Perth – thriving practices in the heart of their respective communities.

400,000 patients

It means that the group, unusual for its scale in that it solely operates in Scotland, now looks after the oral care of more than 400,000 patients across 46 practices.

While being Scotland-specific, its practices cover a huge geographic area, from Orkney to the Borders. They now have a presence in all of Scotland’s cities and many of its towns and rural hubs.

Jim Hall, founder and chief executive of the Glasgow-based group, said: ‘We’re thrilled to get another four excellent practices over the line, securing their futures and supporting their owners to step away from the day to day running of the practice either to focus on dentistry or in some cases retiring completely.’

Thirst for growth

Clyde Munro has renewed its call for principal dentists looking either for an exit or for a chance to ease the admin burden of running a business to instead focus on their clinical work, to get in touch.

Since foundomg in 2015, Clyde Munro has enjoyed rapid growth. The group is the brainchild of Jim Hall. He founded it in 2015 with the acquisition of seven practices and the backing of private equity firm Synova Capital and Investec Bank.

Since launch, it has enjoyed rapid growth through acquisition and has plans to continue expanding.

It now comprises 46 practices across Scotland, with more than 200 dentists and 350 staff.

The group’s ambition is to become Scotland’s ‘local dentist’, operating an expanding network of family dentists across Scotland, with each devoted to providing the best dental care, while reflecting the needs and character of its community.
