Dentist in line for top award

A Bolton dentist is in line for one of the dental industry’s “Oscars” at a glittering ceremony.

Dr Zuber Bagasi, who is clinical director of Synergy Dental Clinics in Blackburn Road and Higher Swan Lane in Bolton and a practice in Tenterden Street in Bury, has been shortlisted for Young Dentist of the Year in The Dental Awards which recognise national and regional excellence.

Staff at all the practices have also been shortlisted for the Team of the Year title. The event is being held at London’s Lancaster Hotel tomorrow.

Last year, as well as being shortlisted in the British Dental Association awards, he won Highly Commended in the Business Person category of the Bolton and Bury Business Awards.
