S4S joins forces with HM Orthodontics to form S4S London and one of the UK’s biggest orthodontic and splint laboratories.
S4S and HM Orthodontics have been in discussions about how best to serve the UK’s GDPs and orthodontists.
The directors of S4S and HM Orthodontics consequently decided they are stronger together and formed S4S London.
The acquisition and merger will see dental laboratory giants S4S (UK) Limited and HM London Orthodontics join forces.
This enables them to provide an unrivalled orthodontic service to clients in the south east of England.
S4S London opens up a whole new opportunity for dentists and orthodontists.
It means dentists and orthodontists can use what will now be the UK’s biggest orthodontic and splint laboratory.
S4S London also offers the widest range of orthodontic appliances, occlusal splints and mandibular advancement splints.
Commercial director, Neil Bullement, explains a little more about the acquisition: ‘S4S has always wanted to increase its presence in London, so the opportunity to link up with HM Orthodontics was too good to miss.
‘S4S London is the coming together of two like-minded businesses, which will provide a “local lab” feel for its clients.
‘Having a presence in London will enable us to offer some of the quickest turnarounds.
‘Consequently clients can now access a “same day” collection and delivery for their orthodontic retainers, which is a game changer.’
Matt Everatt, technical director, explained more: ‘I first met Jinesh Patel, MD of HM Orthodontics almost two years ago at an orthodontic conference.
‘We talked about how we could work together to become the UK’s biggest and best orthodontic and splint lab.
‘Over the last 12 months we have taken those visions forward with the formation of S4S London.
‘Therefore this coming together of forces is fantastic for the dental community.
‘We can now offer incredible and unrivalled same-day services for retainers and the widest range of orthodontic appliances.
‘And it’s available to our customers not only in the south east, but all over the UK.’
Jinesh Patel, managing director of S4S London, talks about the growth and expansion plans: ‘The acquisition and merger of HM Orthodontics to form S4S London will mean the S4S group will have over 70 staff over the two sites that are able to take on any amount of work from orthodontists and general dentists.
‘A combination of free post, couriers, delivery drivers, motorcycle and staff using public transport (for central London customers) will give our clients easy access to the best technicians and widest range of services.
‘This is great news for existing HM Orthodontic clients, having access to a new range of appliances such as the exclusive SCi occlusal splints, Sleepwell Mandibular Advancement Splint for snoring and sleep apnoea and Smilelign Clear Aligners, not to mention the S4S seminars and training programme.
‘This is very exciting news for the UK dental community, the multi-award winning S4S and the vast orthodontic experience of HM Orthodontics is an incredible joint venture.’
