Dental group takeover
A Falkirk-based dental group has secured a £1.2 million deal to take over two Edinburgh dental practices and set its sights on doubling in size by 2020.
BeDental, which already has a practice in Falkirk, as well as Moodiesburn and Possilpark in Glasgow, has bought over neighbouring practices Ocean Drive Dental Practice and Vitaliteeth Dental Spa in Leith.
The two practices bring more than 13,000 patients to the group, which is led by principal dentist and clinical director Atif Bashir. He said: “We’re excited to be growing and having not one, but two practices in Edinburgh is a huge step forward for us.
“At both Ocean Dental and Vitaliteeth, we have overhauled the entire operation. Quite simply, it is about putting the needs and wellbeing of patients at the heart of everything we do.”
