Dentist (Alex Holden) at Cudworth Dental Surgery pulls top national award.
Alex Holden, a dentist at Cudworth Dental Surgery, has been awarded "Best Young Dentist" regionally in the Dentistry Awards 2013. Out of many entrants, Alex was chosen as 2013's under 35s Winner at a ceremony held in early December in Leicester.
Alex has worked at Cudworth Dental Practice since March 2013, having spent the early part of his career working around South Yorkshire after graduating from Sheffield University. Alex enjoys practising at Cudworth, “It’s a great place to work; we all perform well as a team and patients really feel this when they come for their dental care.” As part of the assessment process, patients and colleagues alike provided references, as well as a letter of acknowledgement for Alex’s contribution to dental health policy from one of the Government Ministers responsible for dentistry. Alex puts his success down to simple principles towards his patient management, “It’s good to talk. Patients often feel really nervous about coming to the dentist; if I can put patients at ease by having a good chat with them first about their thoughts and feelings towards treatment, that’s surely worth taking time over.”
As well as his work with patients, Alex was given the award partly based upon his work within the profession; Alex contributes articles regularly to the dental magazines and journals in addition to sitting on local and national committees with the British Dental Association. Cudworth Dental Surgery is a long-established practice that caters especially well for nervous patients; offering gentle dentistry and sedation with all being welcome.
