Lloyds Bank backs dental group's expansion drive

A dental group with practices across Yorkshire is preparing to launch an expansion drive after securing a multimillion-pound loan from Lloyds Bank Commercial Banking.

ASR Dental is building a new private clinic in Huddersfield, and has added two Yorkshire Smiles surgeries in Leeds and Barnsley to its portfolio.

The expansion drive is expected to create jobs and boost the group's turnover by 25 per cent.

The new clinic on Thornhill Road in Huddersfield, will serve as a specialist provider of restorative and cosmetic treatments as well as dental implants. It will feature six surgery rooms and will accept referrals from its group of practices.

ASR has also acquired NHS dental group Yorkshire Smiles, which has two practices on York Road in Leeds, and Victoria Road, Barnsley. The latter site will be its first clinic in South Yorkshire.

The company is now planning to hire ten new employees across both sites.

Dr Altaf Hussain, director at ASR Dental, said: "Our latest growth drive, including our first new-build surgery, is a huge milestone for the group. We've steadily acquired practices around Yorkshire since we began in 2004, and have ambitions to, ultimately, run practices across the North of England."
