Staying Ahead in the Evolving Dental Practice Acquisition Market


The dental practice acquisition market is dynamic and ever-changing. As a dental practice owner, it's crucial to stay informed about the latest trends and insights that can impact your business. In this blog, we will explore some key findings from a recent Mintel report and discuss how they can guide dental practice owners in navigating the evolving market landscape. 



Market Trends

The Mintel report highlights an encouraging projection for the dental industry in the UK. It forecasts a steady growth rate over the next few years, with a particular emphasis on private dental care. According to the report, UK dental expenditure is expected to rise by 18% between 2023 and 2027, reaching £11.98 billion, with 63% of this spend attributed to private dentistry. This trend suggests that dental practice owners who offer private services have the potential for increased growth and profitability.



Capitalising on Private Services

Given the growing demand for private dental care, dental practice owners should consider investing in private services. Providing private services not only allows you to cater to the evolving needs and preferences of patients but also contributes to the saleability of your practice in the future. By offering high-quality private care, you can position your practice as a premium provider, attracting patients willing to pay a premium for top-notch care, advanced technologies, and innovative treatments.



Meeting the Demand for High-Quality Dental Care

The Mintel report highlights the increasing demand for high-quality dental care among patients. Today's patients are more discerning and place a higher value on exceptional dental services. To meet these expectations, dental practice owners should prioritise delivering outstanding patient experiences, investing in advanced technologies, and staying updated with the latest treatment methodologies. By aligning your practice with patient demands, you can ensure long-term success and attract a loyal patient base.
