Mon 29 February 2016

Northern Ireland Health Awards
Staff at Apple Tree Dental Care, Newry, are grinning from ear to ear as they are named NI Dental Practice of the Year at the prestigious NI Healthcare Awards in the Europa Hotel last week.

The award win comes as the practice celebrates a decade ‘making Newry smile’. The practice was also a finalist in ‘Hygienist of the Year’ (Zara McKibbin) category.

The Healthcare Awards  – now in their 17th year – recognise outstanding skills, achievements and innovations in the medical,pharmaceutical and dental industry.

Dr Conor McEnhill, Practice partner, said: “To win NI Practice of the Year is a fantastic way to begin a year of celebration as Apple Tree mark 10 years in business. I’d like to congratulate the whole team who consistently deliver the highest standards of client care which contributed to our success.” 

In their comments the judges said the work of the two practice principals Conor and Katrina was extremely impressive in growing their practice over the last decade.  “Their engagement with the community in Newry was clearly demonstrated through the range of activities and events the practice has undertaken in local schools and with other youth groups.  At all times the patient-centred practice philosophy was extremely clear as was their commitment to patient education and prevention,” they concluded.

Previous awards for the company include Best Implant Smile 2012, Dr Conor McEnhill (UK Aesthetic Dentistry Awards) and Best Dental Care Professional for Hygienist Zara Mc Kibbin (Irish Dentistry Awards 2014).
