Bupa Completes Acquisition of Oasis Dental Care

Posted: 10th February 2017 08:19

Bupa today announces it has completed its acquisition of Oasis Dental Care, the UK's leading private dental provider, following regulatory referral from the European Commission to the UK Competition and Markets Authority (CMA).

This is an important milestone for Bupa, with the acquisition playing a significant part in Bupa's strategy to offer customers high quality dental services across the UK. Bupa will become a major dental provider in the UK's £7.1bn dental market, with over 2m dental patients and more than 400 clinics.

David Hynam, Bupa UK Managing Director said: "We're delighted to announce that Bupa's acquisition of Oasis Dental is now complete. There's strong customer demand for high-quality, value-for-money dental services that are convenient and easy-to-use. Bupa and Oasis have a shared commitment to putting patients first, and we look forward to welcoming the Oasis team into the Bupa family."

Justin Ash, Oasis CEO said: "Bupa is a fantastic permanent home for the Oasis business; both organisations care deeply about patients and people, and both are focused on delivering high quality clinical care. We look forward to the continued success of Oasis under Bupa ownership."

In November 2016, Bupa announced it had agreed to acquire Oasis. The acquisition is subject to final clearance from the CMA. Oasis will continue to operate as a separate business from Bupa until clearance is granted.
