To set up a new dental practice in Strangford, County Down.


Klaus Viesteg is a fully qualified dentist, who has been living and working in County Down for the past 7 years. He identified the need for a dental surgery in Strangford, County Down – since a population of close to 10,000 people in the area lacked access to dental services unless they travelled more than 10 miles. In 2014 Mr Viesteg opened a new dental practice, Edelweiss Dental, in the area.


Funding from DRAP helped Mr Viesteg carry out refurbishment works to the ground floor of the building he was turning into a surgery and purchase a range of dental equipment to assist with start-up.
