A DENTAL practice will double in size and stay open longer in a bid to cut waiting times for patients.

With thanks to a three-figure loan from banking giants Lloyds, Headington’s Kennett Road Dental Practice will have a major £750,000 revamp.

The renovation will see the floor space double and surgery rooms go from two to four.

The expansion has also led to the creation of five new job roles – a receptionist, dentist and hygienist.

More staff and longer hours will mean that the private and NHS clinic can cut waiting times.

The surgery will remain open during the work and the full look will be revealed in 2019.
