A dental practice in Sutton Coldfield has been snapped up with the support of a six-figure loan from Lloyds Bank.
Husband-and-wife team Bhupinder and Harpreet Chana have purchased Walmley Dental Practice after its previous owners retired following 25 years of ownership.
Harpreet has worked at the practice since 2015, when she joined as a foundation dentist. Bhupinder has also worked in dentistry for nine years as a general dentist.
The practice has four surgeries and offers a range of services, including general dentistry and specialist orthodontic treatments, employing 16 members of staff.
Harpreet Chana said: “I’ve loved working at Walmley Dental for the past seven years and it is a privilege to have the opportunity to buy the business. I want to make sure we keep the family values instilled by the previous owners while looking at how we can grow the business further.
“All the support we’ve received from the Lloyds Bank team throughout has been vital to getting this deal over the line, not just in terms of lending but also their guidance and wider support with things like Cardnet. It’s reassuring to know they’ll be by our side on this next part of our journey.”
Andy Matthews, relationship manager at Lloyds Bank, added: “Walmley Dental is highly regarded in the local area and I’m sure Harpreet and Bhupinder will build on this, particularly as Harpreet is already familiar with the practice.
“We’re pleased to have helped them to get this deal over the line and will continue to support them as they embark on this exciting new venture.”
