The biggest chain of dentists in the UK has revealed ambitious growth plans to double its revenues to £600 million.
Integrated Dental Holdings (IDH) has brought in the chief executive of outsourcing giant Capita Paul Pindar to work with the organisation over the course of the next three years.
According to a report by the Manchester Evening News, the plans for the growth of IDH include offering more private treatments alongside NHS provision, as well as longer surgery opening hours.
Richard Smith, chief executive of IDH, said: “His decision to join IDH underlines the scale of our growth potential.”
Mr Pindar said: “I was attracted to IDH as it is a business that puts people and clinical care at the heart of everything it does.”
He added the goal is for IDH – which currently has around a five per cent share of the market in the UK – to extend its range to more than 1,000 practices.
It currently has 250 practices and around two million patients all over the country.
