Nominations now open!
//09 Nov 2016
The countdown to the 2017 Scottish Dental Awards is now on and we are looking for entries from every member of the dental team and from all across the country.
The 2017 Scottish Dental Awards nomination process is now open with all roads leading to the Glasgow Hilton on Friday 19 May. Hosted by comedian and radio presenter Des Clarke, the Awards Dinner and Ceremony promises to be another great celebration of the great and the good in Scottish dentistry.
More than 450 guests were welcomed to the Glasgow Hilton for the 2016 Scottish Dental Awards in May and they saw Dental Protection’s former head dental services in Scotland Hugh Harvie pick up the night’s most prestigious honour in the shape of the Scottish Dental Lifetime Achievement Award.
Hugh proved to be an immensely popular choice for the final award of the night after a 40-year career as a general dentist and lecturer before moving into the dento-legal world first as a dental adviser with MDDUS and then, in 2009, being appointed head of dental services in Scotland for Dental Protection.
New for 2017
The 2017 Scottish Dental Awards will see the introduction of a new category, bringing the total to 16 in all. The new award, the Best Professional Advisor, celebrates the business side of dentistry which has grown in prominence in recent years as more and more companies and individuals have started to offer direct dental-specific advice to the profession.
From specialist dental accountants and lawyers to business coaches and mentors, this new award aims to recognise those companies and individuals who are offering the best advice and making a real difference to Scottish dental practices.
However, while created with business in mind, this category is open to anyone advising the profession, be they financial, legal or compliance related. If they help you and your business thrive, we want to hear about it.
