A representative of Whitecart Dental care said: “We are absolutely delighted to have won such a prestigious award and it is a testament to all the staff who work at the practice, providing the very best of dental care to our patients from across the southside.”

A charity raffle held on the night raised nearly £2,600 for Smileawi, a dental charity set up by Dunoon dentists Nigel and Vicky Milne.
