Congratulations to Paul Sherrard, principal dentist at Moreton Dental Care, for reaching the final shortlist in a national dentistry competition.

Dr Sherrard has made it to the finals of the Aesthetic Dentistry Awards 2016.

His entries were among hundreds submitted by dentists from all over the country in a bid to win a prestigious prize.

Dr Sherrard has been shortlisted in the two categories he entered- both are for cases involving dental implants.

Competition organisers the dental publishing company FMC said: "Yet again the standard of this year's entries has been outstanding so to make it to this point is a major achievement in itself."

The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony in London in mid March.

Said Dr Sherrard: "I'm delighted to have got so far in the competition.  None of it would have been possible without the support of the wonderful team working with me at Moreton Dental Care."
