Private Dentistry Awards 2009

Abbey Dental is over-the-moon with the national recognition it has received from the Private Dentistry Awards 2009. The Ballasalla based dental surgery, Abbey Dental was short listed as finalists in two categories, that of: Best New Dental Practice in Great Britain and Outstanding Individual of the Year 2009. The award ceremony was held on Friday 6th November at the Intercontinental Hotel, Park Lane, London and was attended by representatives from Britain’s top dental establishments.

The award for Outstanding Individual of the Year, for the best dental care professional was won by, Abbey Dental’s Senior Dental Nurse, Manx born, Miss Amanda Wood, against tough competition from practice managers, dental nurses and hygienists from across Great Britain.

Manx Dentist, Dr Mark Hepworth (BDS (Hons) PhD) is very proud that the outstanding level of professionalism and patient care demonstrated by Amanda has been nationally recognised. He said that, “Amanda is certainly a lynch-pin of our dental team and punches well above her weight. She is always preparing the surgeries and attending to patients’ needs. It is amazing how she finds time to train and assist the other dental nurses and still has time for charity work. This is the fourth major award that we have been short listed for this year and winning it is certainly the icing on the cake, sugar-free of course!”

Practice Manager, Dr Tracie Hepworth (PhD) said “Abbey Dental and its dedicated team have come a long way since opening the practice in January 2008. Following on from Abbey Dental’s success earlier in the year at the British Dental Awards we would like to thank all the practice’s patients for their unfailing support and glowing testimonials.”
