A NEW dental practice will be officially opened in Windermere by veteran mountaineer Alan Hinkes.

Zebra Dental in Ellerthwaite Square will be run by local dentist, Dr Oliver Hutchinson with doctors David Veige, Ian Gordon and Ben Wild.

Dr Hutchinson said the practice will provide the community with high quality dental care with a specific focus on transparency of costs.

Mr Hinkes, the first and only Briton to climb all the world’s highest mountains, will open the new business on Saturday and sign copies of his book 8000 Metres Climbing The World's Highest Mountains.
