Impilo has completed the acquisition of tandlægen.dk – Denmark’s leading dental chain
Impilo has acquired the majority of tandlægen.dk and will be supporting the dental chain on its continued growth journey. As part of the acquisition, the clinic leaders and the management team have reinvested significant amount of proceeds and entered into a partnership with Impilo.
In 2016, a group of investors founded tandlægen.dk with the ambition to become Denmark’s most professional dental chain, offering high quality treatments using the latest equipment and technologies. The partnership with Impilo will provide tandlægen.dk the opportunity to further strengthen its position as the preferred dental chain in Denmark by investing further in growth, quality and service to deliver dental care at the highest possible professional level for the benefit of patients’ dental health as well as for the continued development of its employees.
To further enable the company to realize its ambitions, several tenured healthcare services executives will support the company through the Board of Directors, including Mikael Worning as chairman of the board. Mikael comes with a long career from William Demant, which included active involvement in numerous owned and affiliated audiology clinics. Further, Mikael has relevant board experience from a number of health care companies, including The Fertility Partnership and 3Shape.
Henrik Kølle, CEO of tandlægen.dk says: “Focus on dental health is a very important element of healthcare in Denmark. We are working on creating a strong treatment provider using high quality digital equipment and modern treatment methods, as well as on being an attractive workplace for the dentists. The partnership with Impilo is an important step enabling the chain to keep working on its ambitions. The dental industry is currently undergoing a major transformation with great opportunities offered by digitalization, and at the same time the industry is also witnessing a major generational change among the dentists. Therefore, the timing for the new owner to join the team is just right, it will be of great benefit to both employees and patients”.
Nicholas Hooge, Partner at Impilo and head of its Danish operations, says: “As a long-term and dedicated investor in the healthcare field, we at Impilo are proud to announce this partnership with the dentists and the management team of tandlægen.dk. We see a great structural need in the Danish market for a professional and well-run dental chain focusing on dental health and quality. Impilo has been following tandlægen.dk for several years and is looking forward to supporting and strengthening the chain with additional capital and competences on its journey to be the preferred dental chain in Denmark.”
