Integrated Dental Holdings, a leading company for dental treatment and cosmetic dentistry based in Bolton, has revealed ambitious plans to double its annual revenues.
The company’s new chairman, has enlisted chief executive of outsourcing giant Capita Paul Pindar to oversee a three-year growth strategy.
The plans include more private treatments alongside NHS provision, broadening the services available to include more cosmetic treatments such as dental implants and teeth whitening and longer dental surgery opening hours.
The number of IDH practices will also double to 1,000 dental surgeries.
53 year old Pindar joined Capita in 1987 and has been part of the company’s growth from a £8m company to a £4.3bn enterprise.
Chief executive of IDH, Richard Smith, said: “His decision to join IDH underlines the scale of our growth potential.
“Paul’s wealth of experience, notably in the public sector, will be invaluable to us as IDH moves forward with its own highly-ambitious growth plans.”
IDH is were bought for £450m last year by private equity firms The Carlyle Group and Palamon Capital Partners.
It has more than five million patients and more than 1,500 dentists working for them throughout the UK.
Mr Pindar said: “I was attracted to IDH as it is a business that puts people and clinical care at the heart of everything it does. I look forward to working with Richard and his team on their exciting growth plans that will take the business to the next level.
“There are 10,000 dental practices in the UK so we have about five per cent of the market. We will be looking to grow our business substantially. I think we should be aiming to get to 1,000-strong.
“As well as acquisitions, we are looking to organic growth by developing our existing operations.”
