A COTSWOLD dentist has just opened his second practice in the district, creating six new jobs.

Dr Ross Cutts has just opened a dental practice in the former tourist information centre at Stow-on-the-Wold.

Head of Cirencester Dental Practice, which is above the post office in Castle Street, Dr Cutts now works in the Stow practice on Talbot Court one day a week.

He has taken on two part-time dentists Dr David Barrett and Dr Gavin Ho-Fat to work in the North Cotswolds practice with hygienist Nicola Tonge, dental nurse Susanne Sloper, receptionist Angela Sealey and cleaner Mercy Banks.

Dr Cutts, 36, has been practising for 14 years, opening his first surgery in London before moving to the Cotswolds in 2009.

He said: "We decided to open a sister branch to our Cirencester practice to provide Stow-on-the- Wold and the surrounding area with the comprehensive services that we currently offer at Cirencester."
