Major dental group advised on acquisition

26th January 2021

We are pleased to have advised InDental Group, a major player in the dental sector, as they join fast-growing Riverdale Healthcare.

InDental Group, which includes InDental Practice, New Biggin Villa Family Dental Clinic and Deckham Dental, were owned by Dr Shiv Pabary MBE, who has over 30 years experience and was awarded the MBE in the Queens New Year’s Honours List in 2009 for services to dentistry.

Dr Shiv Pabary MBE and the InDental Group were advised by David McEwan from our corporate team and Oliver Brooke from our commercial property team.

The group provides a comprehensive range of private and NHS dental care and accept referrals for complex dental treatment.

This is the largest acquisition for independent group Riverdale Healthcare, who acquired three practices during 2020, taking the group total to 22 dental practices around the North East of England.

The acquisition of InDental Group enables Riverdale Healthcare to further support the region’s next generation of dentists as the practices provide foundation training centres.

Dr Pabary said, “After meeting with Riverdale, I was convinced joining the group would provide the best support and fit for the practices going forward. We have an ambitious team and want to develop our practices. With the support from Riverdale, we can continue to grow for the benefit of both our team and patients.”

Chris Aylward, chief investment officer of Riverdale Healthcare, commented, “This is by far the largest acquisition investment since the initial purchase of Alpha Vitality Group in 2018. Shiv is a leading figure in the dental community and we are confident we can further enhance and build upon his existing success.”
