Professor Elizabeth Kay, dean of the Peninsula Dental School and acting dean of the Peninsula College of Medicine and Dentistry, has been awarded Fellowship Ad Eundem of the Faculty of General Dental Practice (UK) (FGDP(UK)) at The Royal College of Surgeons of England.
The award of Fellowship is the highest accolade a member of the FGDP(UK) can achieve.
It is a mark of achievement for those who have made a contribution to patient care or the profession of primary dental care, significantly over and above what might be reasonably expected of a member of the FGDP(UK).
Russ Ladwa, Dean of the FGDP(UK), said: ‘It is obvious to all to see that Professor Kay has an exceptional enthusiasm for her profession, and a willingness to help others along their chosen path. Her tireless work and support for dental practitioners to provide an improved quality of care for their patients is well known and I thank Professor Kay for that.’
Professor Kay said: ‘I am, of course, delighted to have been awarded such a prestigious accolade. While it is me who has been made a Fellow, it is an achievement that reflects as much on the hard work and dedication of my colleagues and our students at the Peninsula Dental School, as it does on me personally.’
