Employee owned primary care dental provider, Smile Together, named Employer of the Year
After Smile Together’s Heidi Wyatt won Dental Nurse of the Year at the Dental Awards 2017, the employee owned community interest company was named Employer of the Year at the Cornwall Business Awards 2017.
Smile Together is Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly’s leading primary care dental provider, known also for its community funded project, the Brighter Smiles campaign.
“This is the result of a huge team effort,” says Paul Critchley, Managing Director of Smile Together. “Firstly, our dedicated staff who have thrived in a new employee-owned structure, which encourages them to take a stake in our development, and also our partners Fuel, Oxford Innovation Ltd, Kitsons and Burchill GC.”
On top of its accolade for being a company that “truly knows how to get the best out of its employees”, Smile Together was also honoured with a silver award in the Best New Business category.
“Both awards are a testament to the group’s unwavering dedication and hard work,” says David Worskett, Chairman of the Association of Dental Groups (ADG). “They are richly deserved.”
