Why should I enter the Irish Dentistry Awards?

1. Attract new patients

Winning an Irish Dentistry Award verifies to prospective patients that you or your practice provide exceptional care. You can advertise the award in your practice, or post announcements in local media or online. Even being shortlisted for an award is a great achievement, and provides something for you to shout about on your social media channels.

2. Build trust with current patients

Patients like to know that they are a part of a thriving community. Entering an award is a great way to build this community, as patients will enjoy rooting for you and feel proud if you win. They will also feel validated in their choice of practice, which encourages loyalty and trust.

3. Boost team morale

Rewarding the hard work of your team is an essential part of job satisfaction, and entering for an award is a great way to achieve this. Attending the awards provides a fun and social team building evening. Nothing beats the feeling of camaraderie when a team hears their colleague or practice’s name announced as a winner. Even staff who don’t attend the awards in person will feel recognised as part of a successful team.

Now you’ve heard the benefits of entering, how can you get started? The first step is to choose your category or categories.
