CHICAGO – RF Investment Partners SBIC, LP (“RF”) announced the exit of its investment in U.S. Endodontics Partners (“U.S. Endo”) through a sale to Quad-C Management. In 2018, RF invested flexible debt and minority equity in the company alongside the Thurston Group (“Thurston”) and provided subsequent financing rounds in 2019, 2020, and 2021 to support the company’s growth strategy.
Established in 2018 through the combination of three leading practices, U.S. Endo has grown rapidly by partnering with top-tier endodontists across the country. Since inception, U.S. Endo has completed over 45 acquisitions and now spans over 80 offices across 28 states.
Peter Fidler, Co-Founder of RF and former U.S. Endo Board Member stated: “In a short period of time, U.S. Endo established itself as the leading endodontic platform of scale in the United States. We are extremely fortunate to have partnered with such an amazing management team, dedicated physician partners, and Thurston, as they were instrumental in executing on a shared vision – to create the leading specialty endodontist platform in the U.S., where a premium is placed on integrity, physician autonomy, and clinical excellence.”
Scotte Hudsmith, U.S. Endo Senior Advisor and Board Member, added: “RF was with us from the very beginning, back when we had only three practices. They supported the company through multiple rounds of acquisitions and through a pandemic, and were instrumental in helping us to reach our current scale with 80 offices in 28 states.”
