Village dental centre sold for the first time

The Pear Tree Dental Centre

A longstanding dental centre in Burton Joyce has been sold for an undisclosed price, marking the first time it has changed hands.

The Pear Tree Dental Centre was opened by Dr Julie Kirkby in 1990 and relocated to its current site in 1999.

Christie & Co. sealed the deal to sell the three-surgery property to first-time buyers, husband-and-wife team Javaad Mirza and Imrana Ishaque.

The sale will enable Dr Kirkby to retire.

Tom Morley, senior business agent at Christie & Co, said: “It has been a great honour to act in the sale of The Pear Tree Dental Centre which was a perfect opportunity for a first-time buyer or local consolidator.

“Congratulations to Julie Kirkby who has built a fantastic practice and can now enjoy her well-earned retirement, and congratulations to Imrana and Javaad on their first purchase. This sale is further proof of the demand for all types of practices in the Nottinghamshire region.”
