CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–National Dental Healthcare REIT (NDH REIT), a Thurston Group portfolio company, has announced significant growth in 2022, where it has more than doubled its size and holdings in only its second full year.
In 2022, the Chicago-based Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) acquired 74 locations across 10 new states, totaling $87 million in acquisitions. NDH REIT’s current portfolio now consists of 125 locations across 18 states, totaling $160 million of aggregate portfolio value. NDH REIT continues to capitalize on being the first and only dental specific REIT in the nation, as it further develops its network of partners across the country.
Patrick J. Haynes III, Thurston Group Chairman and CEO, said “our growth has been explosive – but not surprising, at least to us. The Thurston Group difference is our partner-centric approach. NDH REIT leverages our depth in the dental market to provide unique real estate solutions for owners of dental real estate.”
Mr. Haynes also mentioned he expects the young company’s success to carry forward into 2023 and beyond, as they continue to partner with dentists and evaluate real estate opportunities in this underserved market.
“For dentists who own their building,” he said, “joining forces with National Dental Healthcare REIT is more than a real estate strategy. It’s a better way to build your future.”
Benefits of partnering with NDH REIT include:
Eliminating property management and administrative headaches.
More time to focus on growing the practice and caring for patients.
Cash payment and ownership shares in a diverse real estate portfolio.
Maintain and exceed their current income through tax advantaged dividends.

Mr. Haynes believes ideal properties feature market-leading facilities with updated technology, modern clinical theaters, adherence to dental industry best practices, and attractive locations where demographic trends indicate potential for robust growth in the local market.
