A £400,000 funding package sees Artis Dental and Implant Studio expand and diversify to offer bespoke treatment for older and disabled patients and families with young children
A Balerno dental practice has opened a new surgery to cater specifically for elderly and disabled patients, as well as families with young children, after securing a £400k funding package from the Bank of Scotland.
Artis Dental, which offers a range of NHS and private dental services, has increased its workforce from eight to 12 to accommodate an increase in patients and the installation of new, state-of-the-art equipment.
Its new larger, ground floor premises will offer a range of services, from dental hygiene treatments and check-up appointments, to more advanced orthodontic, cosmetic and implant treatments.
The surgery has also introduced holistic therapy for anxious patients and facial rejuvenation.
The firm, which has been on Balerno High Street for 50 years as Balerno Dental Care, has now relocated to a larger premises on the same street.
The new building has been renovated into a modern surgery and the business has been rebranded as Artis Dental and Implant Studio.
Brian Clough, owner and practice head at Artis Dental, said: “Relocating our business to a bigger space was a natural step for us. As our reputation for quality dental care and more advanced treatments continues to grow, we have been registering more patients.
“We are looking forward to strengthening our links with the local community by accommodating patients with a larger range of services in our fully accessible practice.”
Stephen Owens, senior healthcare business development director at Bank of Scotland, added: “It’s brilliant to see Artis Dental building on its success and helping the community while continuing to provide premium quality dental care.
“We’re committed to supporting local businesses, like Artis Dental, to improve healthcare services. We have provided a tailored funding package to support the growth of the practice and to help them provide quality care for the Balerno community.”
