Reuters – Integrated Dental Holdings, UK’s largest privately owned dental chain, will either be put up for sale or floated on the stock market by private equity firm Carlyle Group LP (CG.O), Sky News reported Monday.

The chain of 570 dental clinics in Britain will be valued at 1 billion pounds, according to the news channel.
