This company’s dentists treat more than 3m NHS and private patients across Britain. Under chief executive Justin Ash, 49, the group has expanded its practice network by 50% this year to more than 300 locations, after buying Apex Dental Care and Smiles Dental, both for an undisclosed sum. In 2013 Bridgepoint paid Duke Street £185m for the company and Sir Stuart Rose, 65, former Marks & Spencer chief, was appointed chairman.
