A Suffolk dental practice has expanded after an extensive renovation by its new owners – meaning it is now open to accepting new NHS patients.

Sameer Patel and Ravi Rattan took over Haverhill Dental Practice in June 2018.

They have now given the Queen Street surgery a brand new look after an 11-month expansion, with the practice growing from one treatment room to five.

Rachel Webb, director of primary care and public health at NHS England and NHS Improvement - East of England, said: "The new owners of this dental practice have turned it from being outdated to state of the art.

"Their doors are currently open for new NHS patients in Haverhill and the surrounding area.
