Smile Essential of Leicester scoop triple success at Dentistry Awards 2009

Smile Essential has achieved outstanding triple success at the prestigious Dentistry Awards 2009 held at The Athena in Leicester.

They have come away as worthy winners of Best Dental Team (Midlands), Most Improved Website (National), Highly Commended for Best Practice (Midlands) and dentist Shrikesh Kotecha of Smile Essential was also shortlisted as finalists for Best Young Dentist (Midlands).

These regional awards launched by Dentistry magazine have been created to recognise outstanding individuals, teams and practices who have an active interest in continuing professional development and staying at the top of the dental profession.

“We went to the awards with a very humble attitude knowing that whether we won or not we would continue to strive for the very best dental care for our patients. Winning the awards is testament to the hard work and determination that all of our dentists, nurses and reception team show to our patients who travel from not only Leicestershire but even as far afield as Spain and Australia.  Naturally, we are absolutely thrilled to have come away with the prestigious awards and will continue to provide the high level of care to our NHS and private patients for many more years to come” says Lina Kotecha, a joint partner at the practice.

The awards have 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.
