The 2008 Dentistry Awards scored a hat-trick this year as it proved – for the third year running – to be a resounding success.
Now considered one of the biggest events on the dental calendar, it attracted more than 500 people from the UK dental world.
The Athena in Leicester was the venue for a splendid evening of wining and dining before the ceremony itself, presented by Olympic athlete-turned-television-personality Kriss Akabusi.
Many practices across the UK were on tenterhooks throughout the evening before the winners were revealed from the short listed entries.
The Awards had a unique format with the UK being divided into nine regions to recognise outstanding young individuals, teams and practices.
There were three awards (Best Young Dentist, Best Team, Best Practice) for each region, as well as an overall UK winner in each category. Nominations for the awards were collated earlier in the year, with a select panel of judges finalising the shortlist and winners ahead of the evening itself.
