Clyde Munro Dental Group acquires Ayr practice
Scottish dental group Clyde Munro Dental Group has acquired Alloway Place Dental Practice in Ayr, a 20-strong predominantly NHS practice.
Founded in the 1950s and acquired by husband and wife team James and Jennifer McCall in 2013, the practice has almost 10,000 patients, many of whom are the third or fourth generation to use its services.
Jennifer McCall said: “We became dentists because of our love of looking after the community and providing treatments that improve health and happiness. Running a practice is greatly challenging as the amount of regulation has grown, even prior to the pandemic. We’d been given recommendations and carried out lots of research. It’s clear to us that Clyde Munro will give us that centralised support to free us up to put our time and energy fully into treating our patients.”
Kirsty Dace, chief development officer at Clyde Munro, said: “Alloway Place is a first-rate community practice that has looked after generations of patients. We’ll be seeking to keep everything that makes it brilliant, including its staff, and bring further support, services and investment down the line.”
Glasgow-headquartered Clyde Munro was founded by Jim Hall in 2015 with the acquisition of seven practices. It now comprises 53 practices across Scotland, with more than 400,000 patients and 400 staff, and has backing from Investec and Synova.
Clyde Munro stated that “a significant number of new practices are set to join Clyde Munro over the coming year”.
