A Dundee dentist has won a Scottish Health Award for her compassionate care of a dementia patient at King’s Cross Hospital in the city.

Jennifer Watson was nominated for the Dentist Award at the annual awards ceremony, which this year took place at the Corn Exchange in Edinburgh on 3 November.

Jennifer was nominated by the daughter of an elderly patient for the “excellent, person-centred and compassionate dental care” provided to her mother who has dementia. The nomination read: “Jennifer always treats my mum so respectfully and makes sure she is comfortable and understands what is happening so that she is willing to take part in
the treatment.

“Mum has had a long time without adequate teeth to eat her meals at a normal speed and has also been distressed about how her mouth looked. It is wonderful for her to once more have a mouth full of teeth.”
