Over summer we asked our patients and our colleagues to nominate the very best clinicians, dental nurses and support team members in our 600+ practices nationwide for our annual Excellence Awards.

You didn’t let us down and after 4,500 entries we’ve chosen the winners of 10 awards.

Each of these individuals and teams works hard to put patients first and has demonstrated skill and passion for their work. We revealed the winners during a Gala Dinner which took place during our Clinical Conference at the ACC in Liverpool.

Among the winners was {my}dentist Laburnum Avenue, Wallsend, which won Best Practice Team, which was judged on nominations from patients alone. The practice, which last year achieved CQC notable status thanks to its efforts to engage the local community with oral health, received more than 50 nominations from its patients.

The ceremony also included an award presented by CEO Tom Riall for Outstanding Contribution. This was jointly awarded to two dental nurses, Betti Illes of {my}dentist Cheltenham and Nadine Mayson of {my}dentist Woodbridge thanks to their quick actions in their practices which saved patients’ lives.
