A dental practice has been named one of the best for oral care in the South East.

Chapel Dental opened in Flackwell Heath only a year ago and the practice has already scooped up two wins in this year’s Dentistry Awards.

It was named one of the Practice of the Year winners in South East, while receptionist Erica Bryant took home the Receptionist of the Year award.

Chapel Dental’s co-owners, dentist couple Rachel Derby and Neil Evans were “completely over the moon” after the double win. 

Rachel, herself an award-winning dentist, said: “The South East category was extremely competitive with 24 highly regarded practices vying for the award, more than any other region.

“Being Highly Commended is a real testament to the team. We have only been open one year and we have poured our all into the practice. 

“When we first took over the practice in September 2022 there was a lot of work to be done, so for the judges to have acknowledged everything we have done so far is a real honour.”

Playing a huge part in the patient experience, receptionist Erica said she was “thrilled” about the award.

“I love my job, meeting new people, getting to know them and helping them feel relaxed and comfortable when ever they come for an appointment. 

“I take great  pride in my job and feel very proud to have received this award,” she added.
