Two award-winning dental practices in West London sold to Colosseum Dental
Established by Dr Bashar Al-Naher, a pioneer of the ‘Enjoyable Dentistry technique’, The Care Dental Practice and Care Dental Platinum offer expert services in a wide range of private clinical treatments including sedation, dental implantology and orthodontics, as well as aesthetic and cosmetic dentistry. A full complement of mixed income general services is also offered.
Renowned for delivering exceptional patient care, the businesses have won such awards as Best Treatment & Best Care of Nervous Patients (2017) and Best Treatment of Nervous Patients (2020) and boast a wide patient base with many nervous patients travelling from far afield, including internationally.
Following a confidential marketing process, the practices have been purchased by Colosseum Dental UK, a well-established dental group of over 70 practices across the UK which, in turn, is part of pan-European dental company, Colosseum Dental Group, with over 550 clinics across eleven countries. Dr Bashar Al-Naher will remain with the business to continue to develop it in conjunction with Colosseum.
Dr Bashar Al-Naher comments, “I am delighted to have completed the sale of my two practices to Colosseum Dental (UK) and I am looking forward to working with the team there to continue the development of the business together. The choice of partner was vital to ensure continuity for the wonderful patients and teams in both practices, and I know that I have made the right decision. My thanks to the team at Christie & Co who brokered the sale and my solicitor Morr & Co for their invaluable advice and support throughout.”
Speaking on behalf of Colosseum Dental, M&A director, Mr Simon Taylor, comments, “It is always a pleasure to welcome practice teams who share Colosseum Dental’s passion for clinical excellence into our practice family, such as those at Care Dental and Care Dental Platinum. It was great to work once again with Simon Hughes and Steve Darbon at Christie & Co, whose knowledge and experience in dental transactions facilitated a smooth acquisition.”
The sale was handled by Simon Hughes and Steve Darbon at Christie & Co.
Steve Darbon, director – Medical at Christie & Co, comments, “We were delighted to have represented Dr Al-Naher in the sale of his two exceptional practices in West London. He has created a unique business and the interest shown demonstrates the continued strength of the London dental market. We wish Bashar and the team at Colosseum the very best for the future. Our thanks to Louise Fegan at Morr & Co who represented the vendor and Jonathan Hill at Knights who acted for the buyer.”
