Through its Henry Schein One joint venture, Henry Schein has acquired Lighthouse 360, a provider of dental practice management and patient communication software. Founded in 2006, Lighthouse 360 had 2018 sales of approximately $50 million. Financial terms were not disclosed.
“Lighthouse 360’s highly automated software platform will expand our practice marketing and client communication solutions, providing tools to better connect us with our dental customers and to help dental practitioners better connect to their patients,” said Stanley M. Bergman, chairman of the board and chief executive officer of Henry Schein.
Lighthouse 360 serves more than 11,000 dental practices with a range of web-based tools designed to automate tasks and save time, reduce no-sows, and build relationships with patients. According to the company, 90% of users say it has increased their efficiency.
“As we explored this acquisition, it quickly became clear that Lighthouse 360’s relentless focus on task automation, product innovation, and exemplary customer service made it a natural fit within the Henry Schein One portfolio,” said James A. Hardin Jr, chief executive officer of Henry Schein One.
The Lighthouse 360 brand will remain intact and continue to support all current products following the acquisition. It has nearly 150 employees and is headquartered in Sugar Hill, Georgia.
