Awards & Recognition
North Shore Business Awards (2016)
In November 2016, North Sydney Dental Practice was recognised at the North Shore Business Awards as the 2016 Business of the Year.
Nominated by an anonymous member of the local community, our team first won in the Health Improvement Services category and then went on to win the overall Business of the Year award.
North Sydney Dental Practice was selected from the 200 odd finalists in 26 different categories, and it was an absolute dream come true.
This award has put NSDP in the spotlight and has given our team the recognition they deserve for all their hard work since the formation of the practice three years ago.
We are very patient focused, provide a warm and welcoming environment, and provide high quality of clinical care for our patients. We have no idea which patient nominated us, and we also don’t know who the mystery judge that came to assess the practice was (as a part of the judgment process) but it is nice to see confirmation that we treat all our patients with award-winning consistency.
"We welcome our patients with a smile and try to treat all our patients like we would our own family.," said Dr Hargreave in his award acceptance speech, and every staff member at North Sydney Dental Practice truly follows that patient centred moto.”
