Darby Dental Supply has announced its plans to acquire the dental supply division of SmartPractice, with the deal expected to close in May. According to the companies, Darby will leverage SmartPractice’s glove expertise and manufacturing capabilities, while SmartPractice’s supply and glove customer base will benefit from Darby’s distribution network, extended product lines, capital equipment, technology services, and equipment service. Also, Darby customers will gain direct access to SmartPractice’s line of specialized gloves.
With this acquisition, Darby will expand its facility in Chandler, Ariz, to provide customers with additional services while extending its hours of operation. Additional sales, customer care, and support services will join the Arizona team to provide convenient access for customers across the country. The transaction fuels Darby’s growth strategy to extend its ecosystem of full service solutions while supporting its ongoing West Coast expansion, the companies report.
