Linden Cottage Dental Practice Joins Riverdale Healthcare

Linden Cottage Dental Practice, which was formerly owned by three managing dentists, is now part of Riverdale Healthcare.

Riverdale Healthcare currently operates 19 dental practices around the North East of England delivering both NHS and private dental care. The acquisition of Linden Cottage Dental Practice follows the recent acquisition of Bridge Street Dental Practice in Morpeth and represents the group’s commitment to growth in the area.

Managing Partner, Callum Barr, said, “We have completed the sale of our dental practice to Riverdale Healthcare. It has been an easy and good-natured process. Riverdale are a far cry from the large conglomerates who are buying up a lot of practices these days. They are primarily interested in maintaining the practice as it and serving the local community.”

Chris Aylward, Chief Investment Officer of Riverdale Healthcare commented, “Callum and the team are a great addition to the Riverdale family and extends our Group further into the beautiful county of Northumberland.  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.
