Scots Group in £775k Dental Purchase

“12th Practice won’t be the last”

An award winning Scottish Dental group has completed the purchase of Eyemouth Dental Practice, with a range of specialised services to be introduced.

Infinityblu Dental Care and Implant Clinic was founded by a Scottish Young Dentist of the Year, Chris Barrowman, in Pitlochry in 2007.

Since then the growing company has added a further 10 regional practices nationwide, with over £10m invested and over 150 staff employed in its team.

 

The £775 000 purchase of Eyemouth Dental Practice Ltd adds to Infinityblu’s existing Scottish Borders practices in Duns, Peebles, and Galashiels, making it 12 practices overall.

It is understood that the group intends to expand further, with city locations also being considered.

 

The acquisition will see all existing staff retained, with dental services expanded by visiting Dentists from across existing Infinityblu practices.

Investment will be made to property and equipment over the next 6-12 months.

 

Digital intra oral scanning and CBCT imaging systems will be introduced in the short term, followed by a program of refurbishment.

The reputable practice will continue to run, for the time being, as Eyemouth Dental Practice ahead of a full rebrand to Infinityblu by the end of this summer.

 

“I am incredibly excited for the future at Eyemouth,” said Infinityblu founder Chris Barrowman, who will expand the range of in-house services to include implants, full arch implants, Orthodontics, Oral surgery and Endodontics.

“To purchase a practice which already shares a similar vision and ethos is amazing and, by adding a fourth Borders practice, it gives the team the extended support to become part of our community.”

 

In the Borders region specialised dental services can often be referred to Edinburgh, necessitating a 100 mile round trip for patients.

However, the need for long distance travel will be eliminated with Infinityblu offering a broader range of specialised and complex services in-house.

The new practice will cater for existing and new patients as well as patients referred to Infinityblu by other Borders-based dentists.

 

“This practice is already well established and has a great reputation. The faces which patients are used to seeing will remain here and, as we grow the services, there will be the opportunity for recruitment in the area,” said Chris Barrowman.

He added: “The goal is to offer a wide range of services in Eyemouth, which will significantly reduce wait and travel time for patients. It will also reduce the need for patients to see several dentists to achieve the results they want.”

 

Infinityblu has practices in Pitlochry, Dunkeld, Crieff, Auchterarder, Auchtermuchty, Alyth, Callander and Killin as well as its Borders locations.

 

The group cares for over 60,000 patients and performs hundreds of dental implants every year, from single implants through to full arch implants.
