Dental Practice of the Year 2019

Dental Practice of the Year 2019 – Glasgow & GHP Excellence Award for Outstanding Patient Welfare 2019

Based in the heart of Glasgow’s buzzing South Side, Shawlands Dental Care is a multi-award winning dental clinic and referral centre. We profile the centre to find out more about how it came to win not one but two of this year’s coveted Healthcare and Pharmaceutical Awards.

Offering Invisalign, dental sedation, cosmetic braces and dental implants, Shawlands DentalCare attracts patients from all over the country. As they are able to provide the highest possible standard of dental care to the local community and beyond, they were a strong contender from the outset.

We loved the idea of welcoming all new patients to the clinic through a care coordinator who was there to alleviate any anxieties and answer any questions they may have before, during andafter they saw the dentist.

The clinic itself is state-of-the-art(including an on-site CT Scanner)and the clinicians rarely haveto refer patients elsewhere. Thanks to this focus on providing exceptional standards of care,99% of the patients have allof the treatment they require and want, in this medically, cutting-edge environment.

Innovative services like these, however, need to be provided by the very best staff and as such, Shawlands Dental Care treats every member of its team incredibly well. Unlike other practices we saw that incentivised staff to sell, the management team here incentivised exceptional customer service. Staff wellness is at the forefront of their business model. The break room is well-stocked with healthy fruit and veg deliveries and there are regular team building days scheduled. Little touches like this, as well as the higher rates of pay, mean that the clinic is able to take its pick of the best talent on the market.

Our judging panel was particularly impressed by the company commitment to the environment. They invested heavily in a paperless administration system because they felt that despite recycling whenever and wherever they could, there was still more that could be done.

Looking ahead, ShawlandsDental Care has exciting plans for expansion within the dental clinic which will be music to the ears of residents who wish to register and referring dentists. They also hope to make another charity mission with UNICEF either later this year so it can pay its success forward.

Had my tooth implant over 3 years ago here. Never had any issues with it. It’s not a visible tooth (far right at the very back) so not a big issue for cosmetic reasons but I eat more on that…
