New Growth Opportunities

Dr. Michael Tang and Dr Summon Ramzan spotted an opportunity to continue its growth journey when it successfully acquired Birchfield Dental Practice.

Smart Dental Holdings took over the existing 10,000 registered patients at the practice and is prioritising their care after a tumultuous period during the pandemic, which created significant backlogs. The business is planning to retain all members of staff at the practice and recently hired a new dental hygienist to assist with current operations.

“At Smart Dental, we are keen to find new growth opportunities and are always on the lookout for quality practices across Scotland with high growth potential.

When Birchfield Dental Practice was put up for sale, we knew that this was a perfect opportunity for us. The support from Bank of Scotland helped us to acquire the practice through a very competitive sales process and keep operations running smoothly through the ownership transition.

The pandemic has been an exceptionally disruptive time for Scottish dentistry. With the takeover now complete, we’re addressing any backlog that emerged over the past year or so and are looking forward to supporting our patients with a range of new services.”

Dr. Michael Tang, Clinical Director of Smart Dental Holdings

Expanding portfolio

Smart Dental plans to expand the number of patients registered at the practice and increase the number of services offered, to include dental implants, adult orthodontics and facial aesthetics.

“Smart Dental’s smooth takeover of Birchfield Dental Practice has enabled the practice’s operations to continue without interruption.

“With six practices now in its portfolio, Smart Dental has shown tremendous ambition in recent times and we’re looking forward to seeing the business continue to grow over the coming years.”
