Olympic athlete-turned-television-personality Kriss Akabusi will take the stage on 12 December to compere the event, adding his exuberant personality and infectious laughter to proceedings.

The announcement of Kriss Akabusi is particularly topical with Team GB doing so well at the Beijing Olympics!

Kriss’s enthusiasm and attention to ‘focus, innovation and teamwork’ (FIT) when giving motivational speeches fit perfectly with the ethos of The Dentistry Awards.

Bringing together more than 600 people from all over the country, the awards celebrate passion, commitment and success throughout the dental profession.

So the question is, when can we expect to receive your entry?

The competition splits the UK into nine regions, with four award categories to choose from. The winners from each region then compete for the coveted UK overall prize in each category.

With three weeks to go until the deadline to enter – 17 September – why not remind yourself of the different categories just waiting for you to enter. Which one catches your eye?
