HONG KONG/HARROGATE, UK: CareCapital, an equity investor focused on the dental and oral care industry, has announced an agreement to acquire global dental implant company Neoss. In conjunction with the transaction, Dr Robert Gottlander has been appointed President and CEO of Neoss.

Dai Feng, co-founder and managing director of CareCapital, stated in a joint press release: “We are excited to welcome Neoss and Robert into our family. Both are dental trailblazers that, coupled, will elevate the Neoss customer experience and advance the Neoss mission. The company’s well-established brand, history of innovation, clinical validation and solid market position fit well with Robert’s customer-centric principles and passion for innovation.”

After two decades of service, Michael J. Dormer, chairman and CEO of Neoss, will retire in line with his long-standing personal intentions. “Reflecting on a wonderful journey over the past 20 years in which Neoss has built a formidable position in the dental marketplace, it is with great pride that our management team, staff and partners will be central to the next stage of progression under new ownership,” said Dormer, who will remain with the company in an advisory role to ensure a smooth transition.

“I am thrilled to be joining the Neoss team,” asserted Swedish-born Gottlander, who has held a number of senior executive leadership positions at Nobel Biocare and Henry Schein over the past decades. “Building on its esteemed heritage in Gothenburg, the birthplace of modern dental implants, Neoss shares my aspiration to pioneer dental innovation that improves patient care. I applaud the team at Neoss and Mr. Dormer for his leadership, who, together, have created a prominent global brand. I am looking forward to partnering with CareCapital to expand on that legacy and accelerate the long-term growth of the business through astute customer service and intelligently simple innovation.”

Throughout his career, Gottlander has been instrumental in founding partnerships between universities and private companies, and has been the architect of research projects and educational programmes that have aimed to boost innovation in the dental implants and digital technology sectors.

Throughout his 27-year tenure at Nobel Biocare, he led a team that established clinical and educational concepts for modern dental implantology, co-developed and launched Procera, the world’s first successful CAD/CAM system, and developed new concepts combining implants and digital dentistry. As Chief Marketing Officer of Henry Schein's global dental business, he led an initiative as strategic planner for prosthetic and implant solutions, guiding product offerings worldwide and creating commercial sales and marketing strategies.

“I am excited to collaborate with CareCapital and Robert to further advance Neoss’ technology,” added Fredrik Engman, co-founder and CTO of Neoss. “The support and dental knowhow that this transaction brings, will benefit our staff to enable better service for the needs of doctors and patients.”

Founded in 2000, Neoss offers intelligent dental solutions. The company’s products are designed to allow dental professionals to provide reliable and cost-effective treatments to their patients with excellent long-term results. Headquartered in Harrogate in the UK, with research and development based in Gothenburg in Sweden, the company has established a global footprint with long-standing presence in key markets.
