North East dental surgery sold after 37 years of single ownership

A North East dental surgery has been sold after 37 years since its outgoing owners bought the practice in 1985.

Brown’s Dental Surgery is a mixed income practice with three fully fitted surgeries and around 15,000 registered patients. The business is located within the Galleries Health Centre in Washington town centre, less than 10 miles from Sunderland and Newcastle upon Tyne.

The exiting Principal, Dr Trevor Brown and his wife, Dr Morag Brown, started working there in 1983 and 1982 respectively and, in 1985, took over the business.

The practice has been acquired by Mrs Anitha Bangaru adding to her portfolio in Darlington and Durham. She plans to increase the private potential at the practice.

Dr Trevor Brown, said: “We proudly purchased the practice on the 1 January 1985. We essentially built it up from scratch; taking it from a few thousand patients to 16,000. Going forward, I am hopeful that Anitha will continue to run the practice as a friendly family style business.”

Olivia Allison, senior business agent, dental at Christie & Co, who handled the sale, commented: “Brown’s is a fantastic practice with extremely loyal staff and patients, who I am sure will be delighted with Anitha as the new owner.

“After 37 years of doing a great job of running the practice, I wish Trevor and Morag a happy retirement. Anitha is very keen to progress the practice to the next level and I have every confidence that she’ll be able to do so.

“Demand continues to outstrip supply in the North East and there are more buyers for practices than ever before.”
