Highly commended for Team of the Year 2017!

This year we decided to only enter one award at the Dental Industry Awards on the 17th of November, one that we felt really explained why we can boast the great laboratory that we have at S4S: Team of the Year.

We're delighted to say that we've been awarded Highly Commended, losing out only to the fabulous team at {my}dentist! Read on to see the reason's why we have been handed such a prestigious award...

Sadly we couldn't make the event due to previous commitments, but here are just some of the reasons why our staff team are first-class:

  • Teamwork is key. Critical to delivering quality & innovation to our clients, we commit to this through business culture. A must-have quality, going above expectations and being a team player is actively sought. Recognised for strong team work, we're encouraged to show these skills in our working days. This has created a supportive culture, whether building a raft, on a work social, or attending an impromptu lunch at a local eatery.
  • We recognise each other and the talents we bring: From skilled orthodontic work, to innovative workflows to improve efficiency; from the most positive personality, to critical attention to detail. Recognising and harnessing these skills, and creating an environment where people can learn and develop, means our business gets the best from us. Far more than if we worked individually.
  • We champion continuous training. Attending CPD sponsored seminars & in-house training, we learn and develop together. Sharing knowledge and best practice leads to outcomes including our exciting Smilelign portal and our improved workflows.
  • We're led by example, and a common goal. From the top down, our staff want us to achieve. No job is too small, and every contribution is welcomed. Our suggestion box and weekly meetings provide a place where everyone has a place to talk, share, and advise. Away-days push boundaries, enabling us to see each other in a different light, and understand the importance of each other...

Ultimately, we have a shared vision: providing the very best that we can for our clients and their patients, and, together, we work hard to deliver on this.

So, well done all at S4S - we are Team of the Year 2017!
