National Dentex Labs (NDX) has acquired Dental Services Group (DSG). The combined company will operate under the National Dentex Labs brand, and NDX CEO Tom Daulton will serve as the chief executive officer.
Based in St. Petersburg, Florida, DSG’s full-service laboratory network offers a variety of options in fixed, removable, implant, orthodontics, and sleep dentistry products and services, according to the companies.
The combined company will share best practices and capabilities to deliver a portfolio of solutions to independent dentists and dental service organizations (DSOs), the companies said, with nearly 4,000 employees serving more than 50,000 customers.
“This union creates an even stronger lab network to support all our customers and the patients they serve every day,” said Daulton.
“DSG brings complementary technical expertise, DSO relationships, and variety of options from their full-service laboratory network. DSG and NDX share the same core values and drive to continually deliver value, quality, innovation, and exceptional experience to our customers,” said Daulton.
“Together, through our advanced technology and with the industry’s top talent, we believe we are creating one of the strongest dental lab companies in the world,” said Lou Azzara, CEO of DSG.
“We will be able to offer a broad range of options for all market segments, meeting the demands of a rapidly changing marketplace and delivering best-in-class restorative solutions to those we serve,” said Azzara.
NDX was acquired by an affiliate of Cerberus Capital Management LP in October 2020.
“DSOs and independent dentists are seeking lab partners that deliver leading solutions and services at scale,” said Brett Ingersoll, senior managing director at Cerberus.
“With its market-leading portfolio and extensive reach, we are confident the combined company will be at the forefront of shaping the future of the dental lab industry,” Ingersoll said.
