Aesthetic Dentistry Awards 2021

Two local dentists have won national awards at the Aesthetic Dental Awards in London. Nazia Glover and David Furze who both practice at South Coast Dental Specialists’ won the awards at a glitzy awards ceremony at the Lancaster Gate hotel in London. The aesthetic dental awards are considered to be one of the most prestigious awards within dentistry, recognising the very best in aesthetic dentistry throughout the UK and Ireland.

Not only did Nazia Glover and David Furze win individual awards but South Coast Dental Specialists were Highly Commended in the Aesthetic Dental Practice of the Year category. These successes follow on from winning awards in 2017, 2018 and 2019. The number of awards that have been won over multiple years is a testament to their clinical treatment.

David Furze commented, “The awards are clinically based and showcase the individual dentists skill and are judged by a panel of experts. To be shortlisted for an award is itself a fantastic achievement. To have the clinical work assessed by your dental peers and win is incredibly satisfying. In entering the awards we look to provide our patients with reassurance that the treatment completed is among the best in the United Kingdom. “

Nazia Glover added “The awards evening is also a way for us to celebrate some of the cases that have been completed as a team. This is a unique method of team building and ensuring the entire practice maintains the highest standards that we have set ourselves. After the cancellation of last year due to the Covid 19 pandemic, the ceremony was a huge success. To dress up and celebrate together as a practice led to a feeling of normality returning. The atmosphere within the awards ceremony itself was incredible.”

South Coast Dental Specialists were delighted and very excited to have been selected as finalists in the 2019 Aesthetic Dentistry Awards for clinical excellence in the field of Implant Dentistry, dentures, teeth whitening and cosmetic procedures.

They received a highly commended for a complex denture case and were overall winners in the single implant category.

Tania Shorten, Practice Manager told us, “Clinical excellence is at the heart of what we do at South Coast Dental Specialists, and being selected as finalists is a wonderful, prestigious accolade.”

Initially, this award ceremony was launched as the Smile Awards in 2009. The last 10 years of this prestigious event has been a platform for clinicians and teams to showcase their aesthetically focused work and has helped raised the bar for clinical standards in aesthetic dentistry.

The level of competition is very high and being selected as a finalist is an achievement in itself. David Furze, one of the team said: “how much of an honour it is to be acknowledged by the leading dentists within aesthetic dentistry. We hope that having won this award, our patients are reassured that they are treated using the best techniques, materials and clinicians. It has also been such a morale boast for our entire team to be recognised by our peers.”

To win an award for their implant case was a huge achievement and the team are already working on building a portfolio of cases for next years awards!
