SHOWING off bright white teeth as they picked up their award, Gowers Dental Surgery were crowned as winners.
There were scores of nominations for this team, which is why they won Dental Practice of the Year at the Best of Health Awards 2013.
This practice, who were runners-up last year, were described as well-organised, has friendly staff, work on promoting good oral care, and are always on hand to help.
It was a common theme through all those who put this team forward.
Practice owner Phil Gowers said: ‘We were ecstatic.
‘It’s a lifelong dream to be nominated by local people.
‘That’s what’s fantastic about this, and we were very humbled.
‘The team works really hard and put people at the front.
‘We put the effort in, and it’s good to get the recognition.’
Practice in the Park Dental Surgery, in Leigh Park, were runner ups.
