A FORMER Dunfermline dentist has moved to a new practice in Clackmannanshire, but will still be taking on patients from West Fife.

Dr Pearly Alex, who has worked in Dunfermline for the past 12 years, has now taken over Manor Dental Practice alongside her husband Dr Yakob Martin Kocherie.

The couple have bought over the Tullibody practice but have told the Press that they will take on new patients from Saline and the wider Dunfermline area.

Yakob said: “It was sad for us to leave Dunfermline where my wife worked for 12 years but we’re excited to take Manor on and meet new people.

“Our aim is to provide dental care to patients of the community and to surrounding areas like Alva, Dollar, Saline and Dunfermline.

“We are currently in the process of giving the practice a makeover and upgrading the practice.

“My wife and I are aiming to get the word out that we are accepting new patient applications.”
