News: All smiles as dental practice acquired


A pair of dentists are cutting their teeth in business after taking over a Rotherham dental practice.

Lee-Anne Wilmot and Rebecca Davidson have taken over Ivy Cottage Dental Care in Rotherham town centre by using funding from The Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) to purchase the NHS dental practice and acquire the freehold of the historic property at The Crofts.

The cottage dates back to the 1600's and later became the town's first workhouse, which operated for almost 200 years up until 1838, when a new, purpose built workhouse was built on Alma Road. It is thought that it first became a dentist's around 1900 and has been one ever since.

Lending has been provided under two of the bank's government-backed affordable lending schemes: the Enterprise Finance Guarantee scheme and the Funding for Lending scheme.

Dr Lee-Anne Wilmot from Ivy Cottage Dental Care (pictured, left), said: "Rebecca and I have known each other through friends so when the opportunity to work together and buy Ivy Cottage Dental Care arose we knew it was one we couldn't miss.

"Rebecca has worked at the practice for two years so is already familiar with the patients and the running of the clinic so that was one less hurdle we knew we'd have to overcome."

RBS has a specialist healthcare team helping businesses in the sector, such as care homes and private acute hospitals, acquire new premises, purchase expensive equipment and fund new staff.
