A TULLIBODY dental practice which has now come under new management is calling for new patients to join them.

The Manor Dental Practice is looking to register new patients, both for NHS covered and private treatment, after new owners took over.

Formerly called Manor Crescent Dental Centre, the practice is now under the ownership of couple Dr Pearly Alex and Dr Yakob Martin Kocherie.

The two previously worked at a dental practice in Dunfermline before making the move over to serve Clackmannanshire.

Speaking to the Advertiser, Yakob is looking forward to his and his wife’s new venture and looked forward to welcoming people to their practice.

He said: “Our aim is to provide dental care to patients of the community and to surrounding areas like Alva, Dollar, Saline and Dunfermline.

“We are currently in the process of giving the practice a makeover and upgrading the practice.

“My wife and I are aiming to get the word out that we are accepting new patient applications.

“We are both dentists and will both be working here. We are excited to start, we’re new to the area.

“It was sad for us to leave Dunfermline where my wife worked for 12 years but we’re excited to take Manor on and meet new people.”
