Abolon advises VITAL Zahnärzte on their acquisition of ARS Dentalis

VITAL Zahnärzte today signed sales and purchase agreements with the entities comprising the ARS Dentalis group of dentistry practices and dental laboratories. The transaction was announced this morning and is subject to the usual approval procedures. The purchase price was not disclosed. The ARS Dentalis practices will be renamed VITAL Zahnärzte. With 4 large dental clinics in Southern Germany, the group offers the full range of dentistry services with a focus on high-quality treatment, fully digitalized processes, local lab support in each practice and patient-friendly opening hours (365 days per year). VITAL Zahnärzte intend to expand their large-practice, dentist-friendly model (“developed by dentists for dentists”) to other locations over the coming years. Abolon advised VITAL Zahnärzte, building on Abolon’s expertise in M&A, financing, insolvency procedures and dentistry.
