A FYLDE coast dental practice has scooped two prestigious regional gongs.

Ideal Dental Care, based in Fleetwood, which was also honoured at The Gazette’s Best of Health Awards earlier this year, won both awards it was nominated for at the Dentistry Awards 2011.

It picked up the award for Best Team in the North West and dental hygiene therapist Andrea Shipton, of Thornton, was crowned Best Dental Care Professional in the North West. In May, Ideal’s Peter Thompson picked up the Dentist of the Year award at The Gazette’s Best of Health awards.

He said: “Being recognised by your peers for having such a fantastic team which is made up of talented individuals is wonderful. We try hard to ensure our practice is friendly, welcoming and offers high levels of care and treatment and to have this recognised makes me very proud.”

Andrea said: “I was utterly gobsmacked when my name was called out at the awards. And it was a double celebration when the team picked up their award. My award is such a prestigious accolade and I’m delighted for my patients as they put forward some wonderful testimonials which clearly impressed the judges.”

Ideal Dental Care is currently converting the former Fleetwood Arms pub into its new HQ.
