ASR Dental, a dental group with practices across Yorkshire, is building a new private clinic in Huddersfield, and has added two Yorkshire Smiles surgeries in Leeds and Barnsley to its portfolio. The expansion drive is expected to create more jobs and boost the group's turnover by 25%.

The firm's new clinic on Thornhill Road in Huddersfield, will serve as a specialist provider of restorative and cosmetic treatments as well as dental implants. It will feature six surgery rooms and will accept referrals from its group of practices.

Meanwhile, the company has acquired NHS dental group Yorkshire Smiles, which has two practices, in Leeds and Barnsley. The Barnsley site will be its first clinic in South Yorkshire.

The expansion plans were supported by FTA Law, led by Thomas Coates (Corporate) and Carley Jackson (Commercial Property) and supported by Lloyds Bank Commercial Banking, with a multi-million-pound loan.

Dr Altaf Hussain, director at ASR Dental, said: 'Our latest growth drive, including our first new-build surgery, is a huge milestone for the group. We've steadily acquired practices around Yorkshire since we began in 2004, and have ambitions to, ultimately, run practices across the North of England. But, it's important to us that each of our practices is run independently to help us give a personal service and to build lasting relationships with our clients. The team at FTA Law continues to provide us with expert legal advice in support of our continued growth plans.'
