NASHVILLE (June 5, 2024) – Holland & Knight advised Seva Dental, an emerging, rapidly growing dental support organization (DSO), in a series of acquisitions in recent months to establish and significantly expand its platform in Michigan and Ohio.

Headquartered in southeastern Michigan, Seva Dental was formed by renowned operators Brandon Halcott and Naimish Patel in November 2023 with help from Holland & Knight attorneys and is focused on supporting dental practices that serve patients with comprehensive dental care in a private dental practice setting.

  • the acquisition of Mikula Dental, a Michigan-based dental practice
  • the acquisition of Grandville Family Dental Care, a Michigan-based dental practice
  • the closing of Seva Dental's new credit facility through Village Bank & Trust (a Wintrust Community Bank), which will facilitate continued growth and expansion through additional transactions that are in the pipeline

Holland & Knight's representation of Seva Dental was led by Partner David Marks and Associate Becca Rosen on all structuring and mergers and acquisitions (M&A) matters. They were assisted by Associates Fay Shaulson and Amanda Siciliano. Holland & Knight Partner Elle McCulty and Associates Ellen Horne and Esther Luttrell advised Seva Dental on the closing of its new credit facility. Holland & Knight Partner Morgan Jones leads all of the real estate work for Seva Dental.

We've relied on David and his team for 10 years spanning two different DSOs and are pleased to have them on our side."

On June 13, 2024, Partner Elle McCulty and Associate Becca Rosen will join Mr. Patel on stage in Denver, Colorado, to present on dental industry trends at the 2024 Association of Dental Support Organizations (ADSO) Summit, the annual gathering of the dental industry's top leaders and private equity investors.
