Davidsons Mains Dental a mixed NHS and Private practice was established in the 1960’s, occupying a prominent trading position on Main Street, four miles to the North West of Edinburgh City Centre. The practice is formed of two levels comprising of three surgeries, a waiting room and reception area.

Principal Edith Butler appointed Grant as her successor at Davidsons Mains, identifying him as a suitable replacement for her practice and patients. Grant qualified from the University of Aberdeen in 2013 and has experience of working in modern family dental practices, with specialism in private and cosmetic treatments.

Grant plans to implement change early on in his new role, beginning with opening the practice on a Saturday offering private treatments and appointment only slots. He also intends on introducing new treatments in house to save on external referrals.  

Craig Dickson, Director at Christie Finance, worked on Grant’s behalf to source competitive funding for his first practice. Craig comments “Grant is an enthusiastic and driven individual, he is extremely passionate about dentistry and has a real grasp on the potential that exists at Davidsons Mains Dental. At Christie Finance we continually endeavour to overcome the pitfalls of commercial finance to secure funding for first time buyers. This deal is another great example of this”.
