WORKERS at a Fylde coast dentist were all smiles after picking up a prestigious award for the Blackpool practice.
Dr Zuber Bagasi, clinical director of the Synergy Dental Clinic, Central Drive, was given a highly commended in the Best Young Dentist Award during a glitzy ceremony in Leicester.
He said: “It was certainly a very proud night both for myself and for Synergy, and reflects the hard work we have all put in during the last year.
“Patients are able to access so many more services and treatments via their dentist these days.
“Everyone has a right to good dental health and it is a matter of pride we can help them achieve this.”
The latest recognition for the 31-year-old, who is an active member of the Lancashire Coastal Dental Committee, comes as he is about to expand his dental business further.
He already has other successful practices in Birmingham, Bury and Paisley in Scotland and is opening a fifth clinic in his home town of Bolton in the new year.
Dr Bagasi’s busy Blackpool practice provides a variety of the latest dental technology, and he has also developed bespoke IT software for individual patient assessment along with auto-generated preventative treatment plans.
This is the second time in succession he has been shortlisted for the award and was joined at the ceremony by his team.
He added: “The awards have made a huge impact on my business. There was a lot of hard work which went into getting it but it has a lot of benefits.
We took 19 people down there on a minibus from Blackpool and it was an awesome night.”
