Oasis is a leading provider of private dental care services and a major supplier to both the private and public sectors. It currently has nationwide coverage from over 200 practices with over 2,000 employees and over 800 dentists.
Bridgepoint was attracted by a combination of factors: the forecast long term growth rate in the UK dentistry market, currently valued at £7 billion, underpinned by structural growth drivers such as historic under provision compared to other European countries and the positive demographics of an ageing population requiring more dental treatment. In addition, the dentistry market is highly fragmented with few corporate operators, despite significant scale benefits. Oasis therefore provides the opportunity to acquire a market leading business and to provide it with the financial capability to capitalise on a highly attractive consolidation opportunity.
In November 2016 the company was sold to Bupa.
