Dr. Elaine Halley of Cherrytree Dental Spa won the prestigious Outstanding Contribution to Dentistry 2018 Award at the recent annual Dentistry Scotland Awards presented by FMC Professional.
The awards formally recognise excellent dentistry being carried out by teams and individuals throughout Scotland, recognising progress, effort and enterprise in general practice dentistry. The winning individuals and team members represent the rising standards in Scottish dentistry and the tremendous efforts to provide a higher calibre of patient experience.
Dr. Elaine Halley, said : “I am thrilled and honoured to receive this award and look forward to continuing the hard work and dedication in achieving outstanding results in dentistry. This award is a testament to the excellent work of our team at Cherrybank, and I would like to thank our patients and community.”
Cherrybank Dental Spa uses innovative and exciting technology and offers excellent levels of service to patients in a unique and relaxing spa environment.
In January 2019 Dr Elaine was one of 35 instructors (six women!) invited to attend the first-ever conference for global Digital Smile Design instructors and key opinion leaders in Madrid at the Digital Smile Designheadquarters.
Discussion was held about how the digital workflow is changing the face of dentistry as we know it.
Dr Halley said : “We worked hard and discussed best practice across all that affect dentistry today – from patient journey to very technical details that can help dentistry to be more predictable. Ultimately, it all comes down to diagnosis. I learnt more about how we can use digital technology like our Itero scanner in new and better ways.
“Being able to simulate the authenticity of nature using the ‘copy-paste’ techniques that digital lets us have access too is certainly going to revolutionise how dentistry is performed in the future. And using techniques like Smile Donator, natural teeth can be copied and adapted for smile design.”
Dr. Elaine Halley also teaches Digital Smile Design to other dentists across the UK and continues to stay ‘ahead of the curve’ so that she can share this knowledge with her students, as well as continue to embrace the benefits at Cherrybank Dental Spa in Edinburgh and Perth.
