The local businessbased in Park Road won ‘Practice of the Year – Leinster and Munster’, ‘Best Employer’, ‘Most Improved Practice’ and ‘Best Referral Practice’, in the Round Room at Dublin’s Mansion House on Friday night.

Having opened his practice in Killarney in 2009, Stephen moved to a purpose built clinic in autumn 2017, where he now has a staff of four. This year was the first time that Cotter Orthodontics entered the Irish Dentistry Awards.

The judging panel is made up of dental leaders and industry professionals, who look for high-quality submissions and exceptional clinical evidence.

Each award highlights a different area of expertise, and allows the team to demonstrate their skills and achievements.

Cotter’s were finalists in five categories to have won four is unbelievable, Stephen Cotter explained this week.

“The Irish Dentistry Awards is Ireland’s most prestigious dental awards ceremony,” he said.

“It was a fantastic night hosted by FMC Professional, an event held each year to celebrate excellence in dentistry and the hard work, dedication and talent of dental professionals across Ireland. To have won the prestigious ‘Practice of the Year’ category is a great achievement.”

Dr Cotter and his team would like to thank everyone for their support over the past 10 years.

“Without you we would not be able to do what we do!”
