Why 1 investment firm sees oral surgery as the 'next big market'

Oral surgery has become an attractive market for investment firms and oral health groups due to the high profitability of practices and how easily surgeons tend to adapt to joining larger organizations, according to one investment bank. 

David Branch is the founder and a partner of Viper Partners, an investment bank and advisory firm serving medical and dental organizations. He said the company began seeing oral surgery as the "next big market" in 2019.

Oral surgery practices produce some of the highest revenues in the dental industry with moderate expenses, according to a March 9 news release.

Viper said it has completed several deals and experienced much success with multispecialty and oral surgery-focused DSOs, adding that it anticipates being very active in the oral surgery field this year.
