Thank you for making the Scottish Dental Show a massive success!

Thank you to everyone who attended the record-breaking Scottish Dental Show 2019. Once again, Scotland’s biggest dental event smashed all previous records and was voted a huge success by visitors, exhibitors, nominees and award-winners.

The two-day event at the Intu Braehead Arena in Glasgow on 26 and 27 April saw our biggest-ever attendance, with people coming from far and wide to meet fellow professionals and find out about the sector’s latest developments.

With more than 140 exhibitors, up to nine hours of CPD, and more than 60 lectures and workshops from professionals covering a multitude of topics, the 2,900 pre-registered delegates had plenty to see and do.

A successful first day was topped off with our ever-popular Scottish Dental Awards 2019, hosted by comedian Fred MacAulay at Glasgow’s Hilton Hotel.

More than 370 people attended the event, which saw 16 awards handed out. The prestigious Scottish Dental Lifetime Achievement Award went to Ken Scoular,  Shawlands Cross Dental Practice in Glasgow picked up the award for Practice of the Year (General Practice), with The Orthodontic Clinic in Aberdeen winning Practice of the Year (Specialist or Referral).

The directors at The Orthodontic Clinic, Dr Lisa Currie and Ivin Tan, also picked up the Leadership Award, while Trainer of the Year, awarded in partnership with the Faculty of Dental Trainers, was awarded to Gordon McGovern. See the full list of winners here, including the Young Clinician of the Year award, sponsored by the Scottish Building Society.

Alan Ramsay, managing director of event organisers Connect, said: “This was our eighth show and it was clear from the visitor numbers that we have become the must-attend dental event in Scotland.

“Events such as our dental show and awards take a significant amount of organisation and it’s again testament to the Connect team that we make this happen every year and my thanks goes to them.”
