HAMILTON, NJ, January 12, 2022 — P&R Dental Strategies, LLC (P&R), the premier dental insights company delivering customized, actionable business intelligence and claim review services to support a variety of dental industry stakeholders, today announced it has been acquired by an affiliate of The Beekman Group (Beekman) investing alongside the P&R management team. The Beekman Group is a New York City-based private equity firm with over $1 Billion of assets under management, focused on building industry-leading companies in the healthcare, business services, and consumer sectors. Beekman partnered with the existing P&R management team, who will continue to lead the growth of the business under Beekman’s ownership.

With best-in-class technology, data resources and analytics, P&R has helped dental organizations optimize operations, manage costs, measure quality of care, enhance provider networks and more. Additionally, P&R’s DentalMarketIQ® division has become a trusted growth partner for dental supply distributors, manufacturers and labs and a source of powerful business intelligence solutions for the dental supply market. Beekman’s investment will support P&R’s accelerated growth in existing and new markets.
“We are thrilled to have partnered with The Beekman Group,” said Paul T. Sheils, CEO of P&R. “Their experience and track record within the dental services and business services sectors were clear differentiators as we evaluated equity partners. We’re excited about the avenues for growth this acquisition opens for us and look forward to partnering together to achieve our strategic plans over the near future. Our new ownership will allow for continued development of industry-leading analytics solutions and technologies that can help our clients better understand emerging trends and take advantage of new opportunities in the ever-evolving dental market.”
“We were extremely impressed with P&R’s unique leadership position in the dental market and look forward to partnering with Paul and the rest of the management team at P&R.” Andrew Brown, Managing Director at Beekman, added, “P&R’s proprietary databases and unique, high ROI solutions create a compelling value proposition for its customers.
