Nominations invited for Dental Nursing Award

The BADN are inviting nominations for its 2015 Outstanding Contribution to Dental Nursing Award, which will be presented in May at the Honours and Awards Dinner at the BDA Conference.

Sponsored by WR Berkley (Europe) Ltd, the award is for a person who has made an outstanding contribution to the development and/or support of the dental nursing profession. Anyone may nominate but all nominations must be on the official nomination form and must reach the Chief Executive by close of business on 13 February 2015. The person nominated should be a Registered Dental Nurse, although other registered Dental Care Professionals or dentists will be considered in exceptional circumstances.

The Award is for an outstanding contribution to the dental nursing profession; which should have had a notable impact nationwide (either UK-wide, or across one of the home countries, eg England, Scotland, Wales, N. Ireland), have been to the benefit of the dental nursing profession and have been outside the remit of the nominee’s paid employment.

BADN President Fiona Ellwood said

This is a prestigious award to be bestowed upon a dental nurse (or registrant), who has gone above and beyond the call of duty to make a difference to the dental nursing profession. There are many dental nurses out there who are unsung heroes and who should be recognised for their efforts and tireless work.

The Guidelines for nominating and the nomination form are available at the BADN website http://badn.org.uk/2015-outstanding-contribution-award.
