Specialist business property advisor, Christie & Co, has announced the sale of Cardonald Smiles in Glasgow.

Cardonald Smiles

Established in 2017 from a squat, Cardonald Smiles is a Principal-led, two-surgery, NHS dental practice with over 1,400 registered patients located on Mosspark Drive in the Cardonald area of Glasgow.

The practice was brought to market on behalf of the previous Principal, Dr. Katrina Cumine, who aimed to relinquish her management responsibilities and redirect her focus towards the clinical aspects of dentistry.

Following a confidential sales process with Joel Mannix at Christie & Co, the practice garnered a significant level of interest, resulting in five viewings and a closing date set, with multiple offers received. It has now been sold to an independent buyer, Ravi Bains, who currently owns three practices across the wider Glasgow area.

“It has been a pleasure working with Dr Cumine throughout this process,” commented Joel Mannix, associate director of dental at Christie & Co. “I have no doubt that, under Dr Baines’ ownership, Cardonald Smiles will continue to thrive and provide excellent dental care to the Glasgow community. The dental practice sales market in the Glasgow area has recently experienced a remarkable upswing, particularly within the independent sector, with a noticeable surge in buyers’ interest and a significant increase in transactional activity. This trend showcases the enduring appeal of Glasgow as a thriving dental community, attracting both experienced practitioners like Dr Baines as well as enthusiastic new entrants. With a diverse pool of motivated buyers and a high level of activity, the market reflects a strong belief in the value of independent practices and the enduring importance of personalised, patient-centred care.”

Cardonald Smiles was sold for an undisclosed price.
