It was all smiles for Bearsden Dental Care after it was named Practice of the Year at a prestigious Scotland wide awards ceremony recently.

The practice headed by principle dental surgeon Drew Gibson got the award in recognition of the teams commitment and care to their vulnerable and elderly patients.

In the last year Dr Gibson and his team have undertaken over 700 home visits to patient’s homes, local care homes and sheltered housing complexes.

Dr Gibson said: “I would like to say a big thank you to my excellent team including dentist Dr Louise Shearin and practice manager Jackie O’Halloran for this amazing achievement, particularly as we are a small practice. We were up against some stiff completion from much larger practices.”

At the event, which was held in Gleneagles Hotel, the judges felt that with an aging population and an increasing demand for care of the elderly Bearsden Dental Care addressed these needs.

The practice was also won Best NHS Practice and Best Patient Care.
