Dental care options in Sheffield could soon be set to increase after plans to open a new surgery in the Yorkshire city were revealed.
Taptonville House in Broomhill is preparing to open a second centre after principal and dentist Nigel Mallon explained the facility is currently “chock-a-block”.
Speaking to the Sheffield Telegraph, he explained that the new site would enable members of staff to carry out more NHS work at the practice.
Plans to turn part of the ground floor of Willis House in nearby Peel Street into a dental surgery have been put forward by the company.
“I’m excited about the prospect of providing a wider range of services, but a bit nervous at the same time,” said Mr Mallon, who admitted he is unsure whether or not the business will thrive as a result of the expansion.
The Department of Health recently announced it has shortlisted an additional 29 new dental practices to join a pilot programme currently trialling a new NHS dental contract.
