A DENTAL practice in a South Oxfordshire village has been crowned the best team in the South of England.

Imogen Dental in Benson took the national title at the 2018 Dental Awards last month.

The team at the practice said they were ‘ecstatic’ with the recognition, which follows them winning a similar award last year.

In 2017, they were crowned ‘Best Team in the South East of England’, at the same annual event.

Both titles were awarded jointly with the practice’s branch at Kingsclere in Berkshire.

The Dental Awards have been running for nearly 20 years and organisers describe their accolades as 'some of the most respected in the industry'.

Imogen owner and principal dentist Dr Neel Tank said: “What a euphoric evening, I am thrilled that we have formally been recognised as Dental Practice Team of the Year 2018 in the South of England.

“The hard work, commitment and dedication from the whole team has been exceptional. I am delighted and very proud to announce that Imogen Dental is your local double award winning team.”

The awards at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole aimed to celebrate the 'hard work, commitment and passion' of hundreds of dental professionals from across the UK.
