This company’s dentists treat more than 3m NHS and private patients across Britain, with services ranging from check-ups to specialist implants. In 2013, private equity firm Bridgepoint paid Duke Street £185m for the company. Under chief executive Justin Ash, 50, the group expanded its practice network by 50% last year to 340 locations, after buying Apex Dental Care and Smiles Dental for undisclosed sums. These acquisitions helped 2015 sales rise 48% to £234m.
