IT’S smiles all round for one of the country’s leading dental team.

Ponteland-based The Honour Health Group returned from the national Dental Awards with the prestigious crown of Dental Team of the Year.

Travelling to the ceremony in Birmingham as the only North-East nomination, principal dentist Onkar Dhanoya and dentist Gulshan Dhanoya stepped up on the stage after the team was named the nation’s best.

The team was shortlisted in three other finals; the practice of the year, Mr Dhanoya as dentist of the year and Caroline Short as therapist of the year.

Mr Dhanoya said: “This is a huge achievement for our team and we’re thrilled to have been recognised for our dedication to helping our patients achieve smiles they love.

“We are so proud to be the only dental group to fly the flag for the North-East on this prestigious national stage.

“Well done to our excellent dentists, therapists, nurses, receptionists and management team, and a big thank you to our patients who make coming to work such a pleasure for all of us.”

Honour Health was praised for offering a wide range of aesthetic dental treatments including teeth whitening and dental implants at its three practices in Ponteland, Jesmond and Stanley, in County Durham.

The practice also features a dedicated ‘Hygiene Pod’ which offered state-of-the-art hygiene treatment.
