IDH Group appoints new chairman

Dental group Integrated Dental Holdings (IDH) has appointed Kevin Beeston as chairman of the board. Beeston will support the two constituent companies of IDH Group, {my}dentist and DD Group, in the next phase of their growth.

This appointment follows the acquisition of The Carlyle Group’s majority shareholding in IDH Group by Palamon Capital Partners, in partnership with the IDH management team. This transaction was completed on 16 August 2021.


Alongside his new role, Beeston currently serves as a senior independent director of Severn Trent PLC, the chairman of Elysium Healthcare, and a non-executive director of the FA Premier League.

He has been chairman of both public and private companies, including UK developer and homebuilder Taylor Wimpey plc, extended warranty services provider Domestic and General Limited, and Partnerships in Care, a specialist provider of mental health services.

Tom Riall, chief executive of IDH Group, said: ‘As we begin the next phase of our growth under new ownership, I am delighted to welcome Kevin Beeston to the Group as our new chairman. Kevin’s unparalleled experience across some of the UK’s leading public and private companies will be an enormous asset as we seek to deliver on our plans for the future, helping more patients to get access to the care they need, and supporting clinicians to build the careers they want.’

Beeston said: ‘I am delighted to be joining IDH Group as chairman. {my}dentist and DD are outstanding businesses with strong leadership teams, proven track records, and clear plans for the future. I look forward to supporting both companies in this exciting next stage of their growth.’
