Returning for its 11th year, The Dentistry Awards 2016 took place on Friday 25 November.

With over 600 guests in attendance, the star-studded event proved the perfect occasion to raise a glass to the outstanding achievements of individuals and teams within the dental profession.

Held at the impressive Athena, Leciester, the ‘Vintage Circus’ theme combined skills, thrills and wonderment to produce a most entertaining night for all.

Comedian, Hardeep Singh Kohli, joined FMC’s Leanna Ellis to present the awards, leaving guests in fits of laughter throughout the award giving.

Nearly 60 awards were presented on the night, with each winner receiving a certificate or trophy to display in their practice and to share with patients and staff.

The winning celebrations and early Christmas festivities continued onto the dance floor and into the early hours of the morning.
