A dentist from Brough in the East Ridings of Yorkshire has won a prestigious national award from the British Endodontic Society; Dr Chris Maher, of the East Yorkshire Dental Studios, has been awarded the General Dental Practitioner Prize for 2013.
Dr Maher, who performs root canal surgeries, was given the accolade after he wrote a paper detailing his clinical skills relating to ten complex cases that required root treatment. He was pleased with the win and told the Hull Daily Mail ‘This is a huge honour and I am absolutely delighted to win.’
Dr Maher has worked at the East Yorkshire Dental Studios for about a year and has just finished the first year of his Master’s degree in endodontics; an area of dentistry that focuses specifically on the inner workings of the teeth, providing root treatments like root canals and apicectomies, designed to deal with dental infection, pulpitis, and periapical abscesses. He will be attending a ceremony in Birmingham next month to receive his award, as well as a £1,000 voucher for dental equipment.
Owner and principal dentist at the EYDS, Jason Spence, said ‘We are really proud of Chris’s achievement. It’s a real coup to receive this award and is testament to his clinical skills and excellence.’
