  Posted by: Dental Design      6th May 2021

The Dental Nurse of the Year Award at the 2021 Dental Awards, the original and most respected awards programme in UK dentistry, has gained added prestige as it will now be presented by the UK’s professional association for dental nurses, the British Association of Dental Nurses (BADN).

“We are delighted to be involved even more closely with this year’s Dental Awards,” said BADN President Jacqui Elsden, “and to present the Dental Nurse of the Year Award. Part of BADN’s mission statement is to advance the role of dental nursing through lifelong learning to the level of competently applied knowledge, skills, attitudes and behaviours which underpin the evolving demands of current and future oral healthcare in the UK. We shall also be presenting the Dental Nurse of the Year with one year’s free BADN membership.”

“Over the course of more than two decades, The Dental Awards has established itself as the most highly regarded awards honour in the profession,” said James Cooke, managing editor of the dental portfolio at Purple Media Solutions, including The Probe and the British Dental Nurses’ Journal. “It is with great excitement that we announce a new partnership with BADN that will see the Dental Nurse of the Year Award held in even higher esteem.

“Purple Media Solutions, which organises and hosts the Dental Awards, has a long-standing working relationship with BADN as publishing partner of the Association’s quarterly periodical, the British Dental Nurses’ Journal. We are thrilled to expand upon that partnership at the 2021 Dental Awards.”

Established in 1940, BADN is the professional organisation specifically for all dental nurses – whether student or registered – working in General Practice, Hospital, Community/Salaried Services, the Armed Forces, Industry, Management or Education. It offers members a wide range of benefits including indemnity cover at special member prices, the Journal with verifiable CPD, Legal Helpline, Health & Wellness Hub, BADN Rewards Scheme and the National Dental Nursing Conference, as well as information and advice.
