A celebration of Scottish dentistry
Dr Elizabeth Saunders received the Scottish Dental Lifetime Achievement Award to a rapturous reception at the Thistle Hotel in Glasgow last week.
The 2015 Scottish Dental Awards saw just under 400 guests rise to their feet to acclaim the winner of the night’s most prestigious prize. Dr Saunder’s career spanned nearly 40 years and she dedicated a large part of that to the practice, teaching and research in the field of endodontics.
Deveron Dental Centre in Huntly was the other big winner on the night as practice principal Morven Gordon-Duff picked up Employer of the Year and dental nurse and practice manager Kirsty Rodger was named DCP Star.
G1 Dental in Glasgow was named Practice of the Year, Samuel Barry Lemon of Bluewater Dental in Lochwinnoch picked up the Dentist of the Year gong and Donna Morrison of The Dental Directory was named Scottish Dental Representative of the Year.
The Young Dentist Award was handed to Jonathan Dougherty of Kilmarnock Dental Care, the Crown Dental Group in Aberdeen won the Dental Team Award and the Digital Strategy Award was picked up by Dental Studios Scotland.
Scottish Dental Awards judge Margaret Ross accepted the Unsung Hero Award on behalf of Dr Jon Victor who was unable to make it along on the night and the Laboratory of the Year award was presented to Leca Dental Laboratory from Glasgow.
The Business Manager/Administrator of the Year went to Liz Alexander of Southwest Smile Centre in Stranraer and Newton Stewart, the Community Award was presented to Linsey Paton of the Tryst Dental Practice in Stenhousemuir, while the Style Award was picked up by Glasgow Southside Orthodontics.
