Spring & Sprout Completes Growth Equity Investment

Brentwood Capital Advisors Serves as Exclusive Financial Advisor to Spring and Sprout Dental Management LLC

Brentwood Capital Advisors is pleased to announce that it served as the exclusive financial advisor to Spring and Sprout Dental Management LLC (“S&S” or the “Company”), in its recently completed investment led by Huron Capital Partners (“Huron”).

Headquartered in Dundee, Michigan, S&S is a regionally focused pediatric dental support organization that plans to grow by acquiring existing and developing new units throughout the Midwest. S&S is led by Michael Schwartz, Jim Usden and Mick Janness, who all have extensive experience in the pediatric dental market.

“Our strategy is to focus on treating adolescents from ‘Birth to Braces’. We wanted to partner with a private equity fund with significant dental industry experience that shared our vision and goals. We are delighted to partner with Huron on these initial acquisitions and to support our future growth,” said Michael Schwartz, CEO of S&S. “Brentwood Capital Advisors played a critical role in this process. They helped us communicate the Company’s unique position in the under-served pediatric dental market; navigate the buyer universe; and negotiate the best terms for our management team. We are pleased with the result and greatly value our relationship with the Brentwood team.”

“The S&S team has an impressive track record in the dental practice support sector. This investment will allow the Company to purchase the practices that will form the S&S platform and will provide the additional funding required to execute on its acquisition and de novo growth strategy,” added L.A. Galyon IV, Director of Brentwood Capital Advisors. “We were pleased to serve as the Company’s advisor and have great confidence in management’s ability to execute on its plan.”
