R Maria McNally, a con­sul­tant den­tist at Step­ping Hill Hos­pi­tal, has won two top awards.

One of the na­tional Aes­thetic Den­tistry prizes in­cludes a pres­ti­gious pa­tient choice award, af­ter Dr McNally and con­sul­tant oral and max­illo­fa­cial sur­geon Dave Chin Shong helped a young woman smile again.

Their work cor­rected the align­ment of An­gela Burke’s jaw and teeth, which has given her more con­fi­dence in life.

An­gela, 25, from Brin­ning­ton, Stock­port, said: “When peo­ple saw me for the first time af­ter my op­er­a­tion they were as­ton­ished.

“Then when my fixed braces were re­moved their re­ac­tions were won­der­ful.

“I feel so happy and more con­fi­dent. See­ing my straight jaw and teeth when I smile gives me such a buzz ev­ery time. I am so grate­ful.”

Dr McNally pre­vi­ously won an award at last year’s cer­e­mony. She said: “It is an hon­our to re­ceive such pres­ti­gious awards two years run­ning.

“Know­ing that we are help­ing our pa­tients to smile again means so much to me, and it’s a mar­vel­lous trib­ute to the work of both my­self and my col­leagues.”

The Aes­thetic Den­tistry Awards re­ward aes­thetic, or­thodon­tic and restora­tive ex­cel­lence across the UK.
