Bupa Dental Nurse at Cardiff Mermaid Quay scoops award

Dentistry Awards 2020

Andrea Owen, a dental nurse at Bupa Dental Care Mermaid Quay, Cardiff, has been announced as “Best Dental Nurse” at the 2020 Dentistry Awards.

The Cardiff practice had been named as finalists in categories for Best Dental Nurse, Best Practice Manager, and Best Team at this year’s Dentistry Awards which recognises excellence in the dentistry profession in the UK and Republic of Ireland.

The practice has said despite this year’s awards being very different for all involved, as they adjust to the new normal, they still had a great evening and were thrilled to be recognised for their efforts.

“I cannot believe I’ve won to be honest!  I am so very happy to be the winner of Best Dental Nurse.  I want to say a big thank you judges who voted for me and most of all I want to thank my amazing Practice Manager Donna Lovell for putting me forward for it and the Team.  They are all so supportive and they are the best team to work with ever! Thank you and we all hope to be there in person next year!”

Dentistry Awards – recognition during the pandemic

Julie Stephens, People Director at Bupa Dental Care, said: “It is wonderful to see our practice colleagues win awards in this year’s Dentistry Awards, recognising the efforts they put in caring for patients, it is well deserved. I am very proud of the resilience shown during this difficult year, and the number of colleagues shortlisted is a testament to just how many go above and beyond every day.”

With a number of Bupa Dental Care practices and team members shortlisted as finalists in this year’s awards, efforts have not gone unnoticed. Teams have had to adapt to new ways of working and maintain high standards of patient care which has been testing during a pandemic.

This year’s Dentistry Awards were held virtually with winners announced on Thursday 19th November 2020.

It was a successful night for our Bupa Dental Care nominees with Southey Green receiving a Highly Commended in the Best Team category.

Dawn Kent, Practice Manager at Bupa Dental Care Southey Green commented:

“To be nominated second year in a row for this award was such a boost for the team after a challenging year, but to be announced as Highly Commended and be recognised as a team in this way is amazing!

She added, “I am so privileged to work with such a fantastic team, they deserve this recognition so much for the exceptional work they do, each and every day, ensuring we deliver the best possible care for our patients.

“As a team they are always there for each other, no job too big or small and it gives me immense pride to say how great each and every one of them are. Well done Team Southey!”

Our TDC Implant Centre also won Best Patient Care (London) and was Highly Commended in the Best Practice (London) category.
