Following more than 4,500 nominations from patients and peers, Mydentist has announced its shortlisted superstars ahead of its Excellence Awards 2019.

Aimed at celebrating and rewarding the very best clinicians, nurses and practice support teams who go the extra mile for the four million patients Mydentist treats every year, the Excellence Awards and Gala Dinner will take place during its annual two-day Clinical Conference on 11 and 12 October at the ACC, Liverpool.

This year, for the first time, the conference is open to non-Mydentist clinicians. The first day will consist of key note lectures from the Mydentist team as well as key figures from the industry and, on day two, clinicians will be able to earn six hours of free CPD, choosing from more than 50 sessions.
