A Cheadle-based dental practice has doubled its capacity after investing in new premises.
Church Road Dental has provided private dental and orthodontic care for more than three decades, including its Smile Makeover service.
Now, the team has purchased a larger site and completed an extensive refurbishment to allow them to meet growing patient demand and recruit additional staff.
A seven-figure investment – supported by an £850,000 loan from Lloyds Bank – has allowed Church Road to grow from a three-surgery practice to six. It has also introduced three dedicated consultation spaces, improved office space and a larger waiting area.
As well as this, it has funded the purchase of equipment including air transfer units to allow faster turnaround times between patients.
Church Road has already taken on eight members of staff, including a dentist, hygienist and two dental nurses, and is recruiting for several extra roles. Since re-opening at its larger practice, it has boosted its patient numbers by 35 per cent – an average of ten new patients every day.
Shi Karim, clinical director at Church Road Dental, said: “We are now in an ideal position to not only continue our recruitment drive, but invest even further into enhancing our patient offering to ensure we remain at the cutting edge of providing dental care.”
Kate Salt, healthcare relationship director at Lloyds Bank Commercial Banking, added: “We are committed to backing the growth and resilience of businesses like Church Road, helping to support the creation of new jobs and boost the North West regional economy.”
