Working alongside dental practices for more than 20 years, DBG today (Tuesday) achieved another milestone in its successful history having been acquired by Carlyle Group and Palamon Equity Partners.
DBG supports more than 8,000 members in the healthcare sector, providing training, compliance, engineering, equipment and materials sales into dental, GP and veterinary practices throughout the UK.
This transaction enables dbg to continue its impressive growth with even better services and benefits to its members.
Carlyle Group and Palamon Equity Partners have extensive experience in healthcare, including IDH in the UK.
The DBG business will continue to operate from its head office in Cheshire and while they will be joining a family, of which IDH is already a part, will remain independent.
Eric Kump, Managing Director at Carlyle said: 'DBG is a well-established business delivering clear benefits to its members, customers and suppliers. DBG will remain independent and will benefit from the expertise of the investors.'
DBG managing Director, Kanesh Khilosia, commented: 'We are delighted to be partnering with Carlyle and Palamon. They strongly support our strategy to continue to grow and diversify DBG's services and support our members whose interests remain first and foremost.
