The awards for Dental Therapist and Dental Hygienist of the Year at the 2021 Dental Awards, the original and most respected awards programme in UK dentistry, have gained added prestige as they will now be presented by the British Society of Dental Hygiene & Therapy (BSDHT).  

The awards are open for entries to all Dental Therapists and Dental Hygienists, regardless of their status as a BSDHT member. For an entry brochure, visit 

Following this announcement, the entry deadline for these awards has been extended to Friday 5th March 2021. 

Diane RochfordBSDHT President, commented: “BSDHT is delighted to formally partner and support the Dental Hygienist and Dental Therapist of the Year awards. This is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate and honour the dedication, innovation and talents of dental hygienists and dental therapists in the UK.” 

“Over the course of more than two decades, The Dental Awards has established itself as the most highly regarded awards honour in the profession,” said James Cooke, managing editor of the dental portfolio at Purple Media Solutions, including The Probe. “It is with great excitement that we announce this new partnership with the BSDHT, which will see the awards for Dental Therapist of the Year and Dental Hygienist of the Year held in even higher esteem. 

“While we highly encourage Dental Therapists and Dental Hygienists to stand up and be counted for all that they’ve achieved over the course of an extremely challenging year, don’t forget that you can also ensure other members of your team – or even your entire practice – can be nominated for recognition in their own respective categories.” 

The BSDHT’s membership is open to all Dental Hygienist and Dental Therapists, as well as students. Representatives of the BSDHT maintain an ongoing dialogue with the General Dental Council (GDC), the Departments of Health and all the main groups representing dental care professionals. BSDHT attends meetings of the dental All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG), bringing dental hygiene and therapy to the attention of government ministers and MPs. 

Being a member of BSDHT gives you access to a range of benefits as well as support throughout your career. The BSDHT continually aims to improve the benefits provided to members – the most recent addition being ‘BSDHT Indemnity’ – a unique indemnity policy specially created for Dental Hygienists and Dental Therapists.
