Faculty of Dental Trainers to sponsor key award

Scottish Dental is delighted to partner with the Faculty of Dental Trainers for the Trainer of the Year award at this year’s Scottish Dental Awards.

The award ceremony celebrates the best of dental practice and patient care in Scotland and features 16 prestigious categories.

Trainer of the Year will be supported jointly by Scottish Dental magazine and the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh (RCSEd). RCSEd’s Faculty of Dental Surgery launched its Faculty of Dental Trainers (FTD) in 2016.

Speaking about the partnership, Sarah Allen, Editor of Connect’s Scottish Dental magazine said: “In common with FDT’s core aims and principles, the Trainer of the Year award recognises the trainers who promote the highest standards of dental training, safeguard patient care and safety, and go the extra mile for their trainees; those individuals who create a positive learning environment for their trainees, whatever their discipline or career stage.  

“All the awards celebrate the best of dental practice and patient care in Scotland and look for individuals and teams who place their patients at the heart of everything they do and continuously inspire, innovate and lead to deliver excellent patient care, to develop and enhance the dental profession and, ultimately, to improve oral health in Scotland.”

Director of the Faculty of Dental Trainers of RCSEd, Sarah Manton, added: “Aligning with Scottish Dental as partners to support the Trainer of the Year award demonstrates our mutual commitment to encouraging, recognising and rewarding the highest standards of training.

“FDT works to this aim by rewarding interest, engagement and achievement in dental training, providing support and guidance for career development in dental training, and promoting standards in training.”

The Scottish Dental Awards Ceremony and Dinner will take place on 26 April at the Glasgow Hilton Hotel, hosted by broadcaster and comedian Fred MacAulay. The categories are:
