Maven Dental to Shut Up Shop

Well, not exactly. However, their decision to cease all current and future dental practice purchases in Australia, along with the disbanding of their acquisition team, on face value certainly appears to leave a rather large hole in the dental corporatisation market. Add to the mix the Smiles Inc fiasco, share price plunges and imminent court cases about to commence and that segment of the industry looks pretty bleak.

So is it all doom and gloom, spelling an end to corporatisation as we know it? Well, quite clearly not. Smiles Inc acquired many low profitable practices to gain its ASX listing and are now about to embark on a rather costly legal battle of egos. Maven Dental, a good group in our opinion, was often the conservative option for many principals seeking to sell their practices, citing mature back end processing and marketing over premium prices paid, as their major attraction.

In the ever-evolving World of dental corporatisation, new groups are forming and complementing existing ones, keeping appetite for profitable practices strong.
