Uddingston-based dental firm, Park Dental Company, has purchased a former Royal Bank of Scotland branch building as the business sets its sight on expansion.
Thanks to a six-figure funding package from Royal Bank of Scotland, owners Jeremy and Cate Wiewiorka were able to purchase and renovate the old bank into a dental surgery following increased demand for its services.
The move to the premises on Thorniewood Road is expected to create two new jobs and will enable the practice to grow its offering to include dental implants and cosmetic dentistry treatments
Having first opened their first practice in 2005, the husband and wife team also operate another site in Bridgeton. Combined, they currently employ eight members of staff who provide treatment to over 8,000 NHS patients.
Jeremy said: “Over the years, patient numbers have increased significantly, and we have established ourselves as a trusted and reliable dental practitioner within the communities we operate. The move to larger premises has enabled us to expand our service offering and welcome new patients.
“Locating to a former Royal Bank of Scotland building is very fitting considering the support it has provided us to help us achieve our growth ambitions.”
Steven Sharpe, business relationship manager at Royal Bank of Scotland, said: “Both Jeremy and Cate have worked hard to establish their business within the community and their efforts have paid off as they now operate from a landmark building within the area.
“We’re pleased to have assisted them in the financing process and wish them all the best in their new home.”
