Team of the Year Winners

Ghyllmount Dental competed with practices from across the UK to be crowned first 'Team of the Year (North)', and then 'Team of the Year (UK)' at the awards ceremony in London on Friday 6th June 2014. The practice team were chosen to win both titles from two shortlists drawn up by a judging panel of industry professionals.

Now in their 16th year, The Dental Awards are designed to recognise the very best in UK dentistry and celebrate those who dedicate themselves to a profession that rarely receives the full credit it deserves.

Principal dentist at the practice, John Lewis, commented: “The team and I are delighted and extremely proud to have received both these amazing titles at The Dental Awards. We strive to provide our patients with the highest standards of dental care and recognise that it’s not just what happens in the surgery that's important– it’s the whole patient journey."

Neil works from Ghyllmount where he places dental implants and treats patients with dental phobia. He offers a sedation service for patients with an acute fear of dentists.

Business Manager Karon Kirkland said the achievement was "well deserved, we all hold Neil in such high regard. We are delighted to have Neil as part of our team and are very proud to be able to offer his services from Ghyllmount"
