Bridge Street Dental Practice Joins Riverdale Healthcare

A dental practice in Morpeth has joined a new and expanding, northern based dental group.
Bridge Street Dental Practice, which was formerly owned by Philip Jones, is now part of Riverdale Healthcare.

Riverdale Healthcare currently operates 18 dental practices around the North East of England delivering both NHS and private dental care. The acquisition of Bridge Street Dental Practice enables the group to support the region’s next generation of dentists as the practice is a Foundation Training centre.

Mr Jones said, “After meeting with Riverdale, I was convinced joining the group would provide the best support and fit for the practice going forward. We are an ambitious practice and want to develop the practice and with support from Riverdale, we can continue to grow for the benefit of both our team and patients.”

Chris Aylward, Chief Investment Officer of Riverdale Healthcare commented, “Phil and the team are a great addition to the Riverdale family and extends our Group into Northumberland for the first time.

In these unusual times, dentistry has been particularly hard hit with restrictions on seeing patients. At Riverdale, we have proactively sought ways to ensure we can continue to see our patients, by securing supplies of the PPE and installing virus killing clean air technology.”

Chris continued, “Our focus is ensuring patients can access dental care safely and ensure they receive a great experience every time.”

Riverdale Healthcare is a dental investment group formed in 2019, with an industry-leading management team led by Chairman Mark Seekings and backed by a leading healthcare investment fund, Apposite Capital. The team continue to actively source ambitious dental practices which share Riverdale Healthcare’s ethos of providing high quality, ethical dentistry.
