Dr Zuber Bagasi has grown his dental business from a single surgery in 2007 to six clinics dotted around the country.
The Bolton-born clinical director of Synergy Dental Clinics has not only expanded his ?empire? but also his reputation as an expert, specialising in dental implantation.
Today, as well as that first clinic in Blackpool, Dr Bagasi has surgeries in Bury, Birmingham, Paisley in Scotland and two in Bolton ? one in Blackburn Road and another in Higher Swan Lane.
His business caters for a wide cross section of patients ? from children to adults, and from nurseries to nursing homes and boarding schools to patients needing braces.
He has also developed a centre at the Blackburn Road practice, working with the world?s top implant company, training and mentoring new dental implant surgeons from across the country.
Dr Bagasi and his teams have been recognised in regional and national awards, including the British Dental Association Good Practice Awards every year since 2009.
Dr Bagasi has won the Best Dentist award in Blackpool for the past two years.
?It takes a massive team effort to succeed, however,? stated Dr Bagasi, ?and we have great staff. The growth of any company is never just in finance, but in the maintenance of clients and I know our patients get the best possible care and the highest levels of customer service. Im delighted to be shortlisted for this award ? it?s been an amazing 12 months with development and a new clinic opening to affirm our investment in Bolton.?
