Dentistry Awards 2011 – the results

The 2011 Dentistry Awards evening was a huge success celebrating top class award-winning dentists and practices from across the UK.

More than 600 guests flocked to The Athena in Leicester on Friday to spend an evening of wining and dining before the ceremony itself, hosted by cutting-edge comedy magician Paul Zenon.
The theme of the evening was ‘En Glace’ and the Art Deco venue was beautifully lit in crisp whites and ice cold blues as guests were kept entertained by aerial acrobats and stilt walkers while waiting on tenterhooks before the winners were revealed from the shortlisted entries.

The awards have a unique format with the UK being divided into nine regions to recognise outstanding young individuals, teams and practices.

There were four awards (Best Young Dentist, Best Team, Best Practice, Best DCP) 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.

There will be full coverage and pictures from the fantastic evening in the January issue of Dentistry magazine but for now, here are the movers and shakers who scooped the accolades on the night.
