Sale provides Dental Savings International’s customers with expanded product options and enhanced delivery through iSmile’s West Coast distribution facilities
Roseville, CA (June 16, 2021) – DCA Partners (“DCA”) is pleased to announce the sale of Dental Savings International (“DSI”) to iSmile Dental Products. DCA is proud to have served as financial adviser to DSI on this transaction.
DSI is a full-line distributor of dental supplies and personal protective equipment (PPE) based in Union City, New Jersey. Serving dentists nationwide with their leading e-commerce platform, DSI provides customers with top-quality products at low prices.
“The addition of Dental Savings International, along with their entire East Coast team, complements iSmile’s long-term strategy to offer customers a growing inventory of quality dental products, at discount prices, with ever-shrinking delivery times,” said Bryan Shields, President and CEO of iSmile. iSmile Dental Products, based in Sacramento, California, supplies consumables and disposables to dentists across the western US.
“The sale of DSI to iSmile is an ideal outcome for both companies, their employees, and customers. By combining DSI’s East Coast distribution facility with iSmile’s West Coast operation, the combined company will become a true bicoastal operation, expanding product selection and reducing delivery times for all customers,” said Kholt Mulderrig, Vice President at DCA Partners. “The combination creates a national e-commerce platform capable of effectively serving customers across the US.”
DCA has been very active advising dental supply companies for over two decades. Earlier this year, DCA advised TDSC on its strategic relationship with Henry Schein.
