act BSWW and Upper Finance advise on Silver Dental Clinic’s sale to Lux Med Group

Lux Med Group acquired 100% shares in Silver Dental Clinic. act BSWW (legal advisor) and Upper Finance Med Consulting (transactional advisor) supported the clinic’s owners during the sale process.

Silver Dental Clinic offers highly specialized services, including a unique range of orthodontist ones. The clinic makes use of advanced digital technology. It is made up of 6 units, a radiology lab with digital diagnostic equipment, an orthodontic lab and a training room.

Transaction-related legal services for the dental clinic’s former owners were provided by act BSWW. The scope of the law firm’s works included negotiations covering the sale of shares, lease of premises in which the clinic runs its operations, and support in deal closing.

The project was handled by Piotr Smołuch (attorney-at-law, Managing Partner) and Sebastian Sury (attorney-at-law, Partner).

“For some time now, we have seen the growing popularity of private dental services and their increasing market share,” says Piotr Smołuch.

“This is yet another instance of our cooperation with Upper Finance,” adds Sebastian Sury.

The Polish dental market is currently worth PLN 11bn and despite accounting for just 3% of the European market, it has the potential to keep growing at the pace of approx. 10% year-to-year. This growth is propelled primarily by the rapidly increasing popularity of private services that make up as much as 80% of the dental market. Only a third of Poles use National Health Fund (NFZ)-reimbursed services, while public spending on this medical segment constitutes just 2.5% of NFZ’s budget.

“The increasing share of private spending on dental care is related to easier access to technology that improves patients’ comfort and meets a broad array of their needs. This trend is further promoted by the fact that the society is becoming richer and more aware of a simple truth that a beautiful smile often comes with a successful life,” says Joanna Szyman, Deputy President at Upper Finance Med Consulting.

Upper Finance Med Consulting experts have taken note of the ongoing process of market consolidation by investors:

“This trend is perfectly understandable, given the highly dispersed nature of the Polish market, quick technological growth, cut-throat competition from large medical groups, and challenging expectations of patients. Investors appreciate clinics in which highly advanced services, incl. orthodontics, form a large share,” says Marcin Śmigielski, Project Manager at Upper Finance Med Consulting.
