Scottish Dental Awards 2016

11 March 2016

DCP Star

The Scottish Dental Awards are looking for the Dental Care Professional who has made an outstanding contribution to dentistry.

Do you know a dental nurse who has overcome adversity to follow their career, or a hygienist who goes the extra mile for their patients? If so, get nominating and they could be celebrating come May!

This individual regularly goes above and beyond the call of duty and is an indispensable member of their practice, team or department.

Along with an in depth biog, SDA need to know what this person does to stand out from the crowd and how they make a real difference to their patients, their colleagues and their place of work.

Unsung Hero Award

Does your colleague make a huge difference but not get the credit they deserve? Let SDA know and they could be 2016’s Unsung Hero!

This category aims to celebrate those individuals or teams who play a key role in your practice but never seem to get the recognition, especially (but not limited to) those outwith the traditional clinical teams.

This could be an individual or a team including (but not limited to): health visitors, nursery nurses, dental health support workers, care home workers and LDU operatives.

To enter this category SDA need to know as much about this individual or team as possible and all the reasons why they should be named the Scottish Dental Unsung Hero Award winner for 2016.

Info on the dinner itself:

The 2016 Scottish Dental Awards Ceremony and Dinner will be held at the five-star Glasgow Hilton Hotel and hosted by television personality Carol Smillie.

Guests will be welcomed to the event with a champagne reception and this will be followed by a three-course meal with wine. After the ceremony, Lost Angels will take to the stage and guests will be invited to dance the night away!

Individual tickets cost £125 and tables of 10 £1,100. For more information and to book your tickets at the dental event of the year, call Ann Craib on 0141 560 3021 or email
