Royal Bank of Scotland has supported the buy-in of a new partner at the Abbey Dental Practice, based in Bury St Edmunds.

Dr Fredrik Andersson, who has worked as an associate at the practice for the last seven years, has now acquired shares following the retirement of Dr Stephen Little.

He is to take on Dr Little’s previous patients, providing general routine dentistry services, but also plans to focus on expanding the dental implant offering at the practice.

Dr Andersson joins existing partners Dr Rolf Bandenburg, Dr Bob Pilcher and Dr Chris Whiter in the running of the long-established practice which is based on Angel Hill in Bury St Edmunds and also has a clinic in Woolpit.

The practice primarily provides treatment for private patients, including routine dentistry services and a wide variety of cosmetic treatments, but also sees a small number of children on the NHS.

Dr Andersson said: “I am really pleased to have become a partner in The Abbey Dental Practice. When Dr Little confirmed that he wanted to retire I knew that this presented the perfect opportunity for me.

“The practice has a lovely atmosphere and great patients and having worked here for the last seven years I knew that it was somewhere I wanted to make my position more permanent.
