Award winning dentist opens first practice thanks to RBoS

Jonathan Dougherty

Scottish Young Dentist of the Year, Jonathan Dougherty, 27, has opened Kilmarnock Dental Care on Portland Road with an ambition to offer new services to the area.

Supported by RBS Corporate and Commercial, Jonathan’s new practice offers a wide range of treatment options to new and existing patients such as dental implant treatment, invisible braces for adults, cosmetic dental treatment, family dental care and ‘child smile’ clinics for children under six.

The opening coincides with the award when Jonathan was named Young Dentist of the Year at the Scottish Dental Awards in Glasgow last week.

Jonathan said: “This is an exciting time in dentistry. More procedures are now driven by advances in technology and we are able to offer new forms of implant treatment for replacement of missing teeth and to help fix loose dentures.

“With this in mind I decided to invest in the services and treatments we offer so they are available for everyone.

“We offer free consultations for all cosmetic treatments such as white fillings, straight teeth treatment and implant work and are now please to be accepting new patients, both NHS and private.”

Jonathan took a conventional business term loan with RBS. Some of the loan has been used to install a state of the art patients’ lounge, where clients can use free wifi to listen to music or watch films.

RBS Relationship Manager Bill Dickson helped facilitate the deal.

Bill said: “Jonathan has some great ideas for Kilmarnock Dental Care. Dentistry is a key sector for the healthcare industry and we were keen at RBS to support Jonathan with the creation of the business.

“It is fantastic news that the launch of his business has coincided with his win.”

Jonathan added: “I can’t thank RBS enough. They have been a great supporter of my plans for Kilmarnock Dental Care.”
