If you follow us on social media or you’ve been to see us recently, you’ll have probably noticed the already huge smiles on our faces have got significantly larger. “Why?” You ask. Well it’s because K Dental Studios have been crowned London’s Practice of the Year at the Private Dentistry Awards!
The Awards were held in December, however we had submitted our entry much earlier in the year. Each category required a separate entry showcasing our expertise, uniqueness, teamwork and examples of cases we had worked on. We also wrote about our commitment to the industry through training and how we strive to make the Studios completely accessible to all without compromising on the quality of work. Some of your wonderful testimonials were also included, so a big thank you to you!
So, back to the awards themselves. If you’ve never been to the Private Dentistry Awards before, I can only describe them as being the BAFTA’s of the dental industry; a pretty big deal! In the run up to the big event we had discussed and debated our outfits – it’s not often we get to swap our scrubs for formal wear! After a busy day in the studios we said goodbye to our last patients and then the fun began. We wanted to get ready as a team and the reception area of the studios rapidly changed from a practice into a dressing room. One of patients was incredibly kind and worked her magic on the ladies hair and makeup to perfect their awards ceremony looks. Preparations complete, off we went to the illustrious Park Plaza Hotel in Westminster.
Arriving at the venue, the bright lights indicated that we were in for a luxurious evening. Once inside, it was amazing to see so many friendly faces. The atmosphere was electric and it seemed everyone was simply thrilled to be there to celebrate the many remarkable achievements within Private Dentistry. We bumped into a few famous faces too, including the legendary Singing Dentist, who according to Twitter was the subject of many selfies that night – us included!
On to the serious business, the awards. We’d been shortlisted for four categories: Best Patient Care, Best Referral, Best Team and Practice of the Year. This alone felt like a huge achievement, however the most wonderful moment was still to come. We were up against some absolutely fantastic practices and if I’m honest I really enjoyed hearing about their achievements, even when three out of the four categories had passed and we hadn’t won an award.
Last but not least was the award for Practice of the Year – London, a category in which 5 very impressive other practices were listed. Then it happened, they called it out loud and clear: “The Winner of London’s Practice of the Year is….K Dental Studios!” We jumped up in excitement, shock and sheer joy. The whole team practically skipped to the stage to pick up our trophy and celebrate in front of the many flashing cameras.
We’ve received feedback from the judges as to why they felt that we are are London’s practice of the Year.
It’s a night we’ll remember forever, the night K Dental Studios were crowned London’s Practice of the Year. We opened our doors less than 3 years ago and I never expected we could achieve what we have in this short amount of time. I’d personally like to take a moment to thank our wonderful patients and those who refer their patients to us, it’s an absolute pleasure. As you can imagine, there’s no way I can ever thank my team enough, they made this happen. With them by my side I’m very much looking forward to seeing what’s next on the cards for K Dental Studios.
