Young Den­tist nom­i­na­tion

Rutherglen Reformer - - Election Special - Jonathan Ged­des

A Cam­bus­lang den­tist is one of the best in Scot­land – and that’s the tooth.

Alyson Lovie is in the run­ning for Young Den­tist of the Year at the Scot­tish Den­tal Awards, which will be held at the Hil­ton ho­tel in Glas­gow on May 19.

The 26-year-old works at Com­plete Den­tal Care on Western Road and is on a six strong short­list for the prize.

She told the Re­former that the nom­i­na­tion had come com­pletely out of the blue.

She said: “It was very un­ex­pected, so it was quite a nice surprise to find out I’d been nom­i­nated.

“Some­one sub­mits a nom­i­na­tion for why you should win the award, so my boss did the hard work - she had to write an es­say say­ing why I was de­serv­ing, with ev­i­dence and pa­tient’s tes­ti­mo­ni­als and things like that.

“I’m look­ing for­ward to the night it­self – my par­ents and my boyfriend are com­ing along and we’ll make a night of it.”

Alyson has worked at Com­plete Den­tal Care since grad­u­at­ing from the Univer­sity of Glas­gow, and has proved pop­u­lar with pa­tients and her fel­low staff.

She added: “I started as part of my vo­ca­tional train­ing and I just re­ally en­joyed work­ing here right from the start.

“Af­ter the vo­ca­tional train­ing had fin­ished I was lucky enough that I ended up stay­ing on.

“I first got in­ter­ested in be­ing a den­tist when I was about 14.

“I car­ried it on from there, through school and then to univer­sity.”

Alyson is cur­rent l y un­der­go­ing train­ing in or­thodon­tics.

The clinic’s man­ager, Samantha Tray, was de­lighted for Alyson.

She said: “We’re re­ally proud of her.

“Alyson has worked very hard for us and has built a great rapport with pa­tients.”
