Dental Care Ireland recently acquired its 20th Irish practice. Kilbarrack Dental Care in Dublin 5 is the group’s sixth acquisition in the last 12 months, along with Ennis Dental in Co. Clare, Wellington Quay Dental Centre in Co. Louth, Virginia Dental Surgery in Co. Cavan, Farnham Street Dental Surgery in Cavan Town, and two former Centric Health practices in Dublin.
Dental Care Ireland states that it will invest in upgrading and rebranding the practices in 2021, while providing management and administrative support to practice teams in operations, finance, quality and compliance, HR and marketing.
According to CEO Colm Davitt: “Over the last six years, we have acquired some exceptional dental practices, and helped them to reach their full potential. Our significant track record in the Irish market, as well as a strong support team in Dublin, has enabled us to continue our expansion despite the challenges of the last 12 months. Our ultimate aim is to provide a Dental Care Ireland practice in every single county, so we have ambitious plans to grow the organisation further in the year ahead”.
The group has also appointed Dr Jennifer Collins (pictured above) to the new role of Clinical Director. Jennifer joined Dental Care Ireland in 2019 as Lead General Dentist at Northumberland Dental Care in Dublin 4. In addition to this role, she will now provide clinical support and training to clinicians across the Dental Care Ireland group.
