Dental symposium raises thousands for charity

by Guy Hiscott

Belmore Dental Clinic’s Lakeland Dental Symposium has raised £55,000 for charity.

Owner of the practice, Sinead McEnhill, said: ‘The lecturers very kindly provided their time and expertise free of charge in the name of a good cause. I can’t thank them enough.

‘The final count is, as yet, not in. We are continuing at practice level to raise money for the causes, with another draw due to take place at the end of July.’

With speakers such as Ashok Sethi, Graham Stokes, Fazeela Khan-Osborne, ex rugby international player Simon Hill, and Trevor McNulty of Survival-linx, the event proved a major success.

Sinead and her brothers, Joe and Rory, who run the referral oral surgery and implant practice in Enniskillen, initially hatched the idea for the fundraiser last year following a worrying health period for Sinead’s eight-year-old son. He received treatment at the Freeman Hospital Cardiac Unit, which, fortunately, was a complete success.

The Children’s Heartbeat Trust and Horizon’s West will benefit from the funds raised.
