- Bupa completed the acquisition of Oasis Dental Care on 09 February 2017 with an enterprise value of £835m
- The UK dental market was estimated as £7.1 billion in 2015/16 (52% private and 48% NHS). It is forecast to grow by 2.1% (CAGR) per year by 2020/21. Underlying long-term growth is driven by structural factors including favourable demographics such as ageing and a growing population, government policy trends as dentistry becomes a higher profile public service, and the growth in cosmetic dentistry.
- Oasis Dental Care is the second largest dental provider in the UK with 380 practices and over 1,800 dentists, serving both the private and public sectors in equal measure. Oasis Dental Centre has annual revenue of £277m for the financial year 2015/16, more than 6,000 people and serves 2m active patients in the UK.
We employ over 86,000 people, principally in the UK, Australia, Spain, Poland, Hong Kong, Chile, Brazil, Saudi Arabia, India, New Zealand, Thailand and the US.
Around 70% of our revenue is from health insurance, with the rest from health and care provision. We fund healthcare around the world and run clinics, dental centres, hospitals, care homes and retirement villages in a number of countries.
