Rodericks Dental acquires South Wales dental practices
Rodericks Dental has acquired two dental practices owned by Gower Healthcare in Swansea.
Pentrepoeth dental practice is situated in the centre of Morriston, a residential suburb on the outskirts of Swansea, and Chapel Street dental practice is in The Mumbles, a town on the edge of the Gower peninsula, west of Swansea.
Rodericks Dental is the fourth-largest dental corporate in the UK, with a number of practices in South Wales including in the Swansea area.
Gower Healthcare was owned by principal dentist, Dr Allison Walker, and her husband, Geraint Jones.
Walker said: “Having owned the business and developed it over the years it seemed the ideal time to become part of a larger organisation. I am looking forward to working with the Rodericks team and growing the business further over the coming years.”
Rodericks Dental’s chief executive Gareth York, commented: “We are delighted to welcome Gower Healthcare to the Rodericks Group and are sure it will help strengthen our position in South Wales.”
Simon Hughes, managing director at business property advisor Christie & Co, who handled the sale, added: “The dental market in South Wales is increasingly sought after, particularly for larger mixed or private practices. There are a number of acquisitive groups based in Wales who are looking to increase their presence, as well as buyers moving in from England.”
