That was April - hello May!

Let’s get the bad news out of the way. April was quite a month in UK dentistry:

  • The start of a new contract year with record levels of clawback;

  • The very public challenges within BUPA Dental, leading to the biggest fire sale we have ever seen;

  • Continued challenges in recruitment and retention of team members;

  • Many clinicians searching for a better career – either by working outside of the NHS system or simply working less hours, leaving empty surgeries;

  • An increase in conflict – patients, team members and clinicians kicking up various fusses when things don’t go the way they want;

  • A disrupted acquisitions market – Private Equity getting very nervous about the overall dental landscape, due diligence getting tougher, and goal-posts moving on values and earn out terms.
