NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Beekman Group (“Beekman”) announced the completion of the sale of Delaware Valley Management Holdings, Inc. (“DVM”), a leading regional dental service organization supporting 20 dental practices in the greater Philadelphia market.
Beekman partnered with Louis A. D’Angelo, DMD in a growth capital transaction in May 2014 to form a dental service organization (“DSO”) to support Dr. D’Angelo’s dental group operating under the name Simply Beautiful Smiles ("SBS"), originally founded in 2000. Together with Beekman, DVM and its affiliates have grown to become a leading provider of non-clinical dental office support and administrative services in the greater Philadelphia market, currently supporting a network of 20 practices in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. SBS and its affiliated dental offices provide high quality, comprehensive general and multi-specialty dentistry to adults and children through a patient-focused service approach.
As DVM’s CEO and Chief Dental Officer, Dr. D’Angelo commented, “The Beekman Group has been a true partner over the last five years. Their experience in building leading dental service organizations and hands-on involvement proved invaluable to our team as we executed on a disciplined acquisition growth plan, expanding from 10 to 20 practices and more than doubling our revenue and cash flow, while maintaining our commitment to support our dentists and staff to provide consistent quality care to our patients. I know Beekman will continue to be successful partnering with owners and entrepreneurs in the lower middle market to grow and professionalize their businesses.”
Andrew V. Marolda, Managing Director of The Beekman Group said, “We are pleased to have partnered with Dr. D’Angelo to help him expand and improve his team and operations. SBS has become a leading DSO in the region and has the potential to grow into one of the leading players in the country. We wish the team the best as they continue to grow with their next capital partner.”
DVM was an investment out of Beekman Investment Partners II, LP. The Beekman Group manages over $800 million of assets and focuses on lower middle-market services companies based in the U.S.
