Having been shortlisted for 5 categories, the team from The Crescent were triumphant in three categories – Practice Manager of the Year, Dental Nurse of the Year and Receptionist of the Year, awarded to Debbie Hutchinson, Nickii Terry and Helen Daley respectively.
Debbie Hutchinson, Practice Manager of the Year, said: “We are truly overwhelmed at winning such a prestigious set of awards. I’m sure Helen and Nickii will join me in saying that winning these titles would not have been possible had it not been for the outstanding team effort that has been put in by each and every member of the team at The Crescent.
“I truly thank the whole team for their support and hard work over the past year, but special thanks must also go to Specialist Orthodontist Fabio Butera who was instrumental in looking after our orthodontic patients whilst our Lead Clinician Jeremy peak was in hospital recovering from a brain haemorrhage.”
“The past 12 months have certainly been a challenging time but with the exemplary guidance from Jeremy, and support from our Regional Manager, Tim Ball, we have come through it and can now look forward with excitement for 2012 and beyond.”
Tim Ball, Regional Manager of The Crescent’s parent company Integrated Dental Holdings, added: “I am extremely proud of the team at The Crescent for their well-deserved success at the National Dental Awards.”
“The team had a number of challenges to face this year but handled them all with drive and enthusiasm and continued to deliver world-class standards of patient care in a mixed NHS and specialist private practice.”
“To have three winners in a practice with such key roles is testament to the dedication of the whole team and strong leadership from Debbie Hutchinson, Practice Manager and Jeremy Peak, Lead Clinician. I know the team are looking forward to another successful year delivering excellence in dentistry to the patients of Plymouth.”
“There can't be many practices where patients are managed by the Practice Manager of the Year, greeted by Receptionist of the Year and nursed by Nurse of the Year!”
