More awards for clinic: tremendous credit to our team

We attended the prestigious Dentistry Scotland Awards on Friday night at Gleneagles.

We were delighted to secure two of the top accolades from the event – the award for Most Attractive Practice and we were named Best Private Practice.

Our dental implant nurse Kasia was also highly commended in the Most Outstanding Individual category and the Glasgow clinic received the same mention in the Practice of the Year – West category.

All in all a very successful night for Philip Friel Advanced Dentistry here in Glasgow…and a great recognition of the tremendous effort put in by all our team over the last 12 months of our existence.

Congratulations to Jamie: focus helps relax anxious Philip Friel Advanced Dentistry patients

Congratulations to our colleague Jamie Maguire who has just passed his diploma in conscious sedation.

Dental conscious sedation is a technique whereby a sedative medication is used to relax and sedate patients at our Glasgow dental clinic who are very anxious of receiving dental treatment. We see many patients who are extremely concerned about visits to the dentist and indeed can be phobic about the experience.

Jamie is a key part of our team and enables us to deliver the best possible outcomes by our superb team approach especially for those patients who are apprehensive about treatment. It means they can receive advanced dental care to achieve the optimum in oral health.

Jamie Maguire has a focus on sedation for patients at Philip Friel Advanced Dentistry in Glasgow.

New courses planned: Philip completes preparation work

I am often asked to make presentations on a number of dental related topics – especially implant work.

I’ve just been in Manchester on a course to help hone my skills in presenting.

The course was run by the impressive Ashley Latter and it was a fantastic day.

Leaves me in good stead for what I see will be a vastly increasing lecture commitment in the coming 18 months.

We’ll be doing many of the courses and seminars in our own Glasgow clinic.

Specialist role for another Philip

Congratulations to my wife Stephanie who graduated this week after successfully completing her specialist course.

She’s now a specialist paediatric dentist – a tremendous achievement as she completed that qualification while doing her full-time job, supporting and looking after me and, of course, most importantly, being a mum.

Brilliant I’d say.

After the graduation we went out with our respective parents for a celebration meal. Well done Stephanie

And we’re also chuffed to have been named Practice of the Year in Scotland – and this is a tremendous achievement for each and every team member.
