We are proud to announce that our dental division- WestWon Dental has been nominated for two Dental Industry Awards.
The Dental Industry Awards were designed to recognise and pay tribute to those who work in and alongside the UK’s dental industry. Therefore, we feel honoured to be included as a part of this event.
The award ceremony will be held at the Riverbank Park Plaza in London on 1st December. We can’t wait to meet with both new and familiar faces in the industry!
What awards are we up for?
WestWon Dental have been nominated for the follow award categories:
- Funder of the Year
- Corporate Social Responsibility
Why do we think we have been chosen for these categories?
Dental Industry Awards- Funder of the Year
WestWon Dental are the only dedicated finance broker to the dental sector, so it only makes sense for us to be strong candidates for the award.
With the WestWon Dental sales director having over 25 years’ experience working alongside the dental sector, it is safe to say that he knows his stuff when it comes to dentistry finance.
Dental Industry Awards- Corporate Social Responsibility
There are a multitude of reasons as to why we think we were selected as finalists for this award.
Here at WestWon we know how important it is to give back and try to contribute positively to society wherever we can. So, whether that be global, international, or local, we like to make an impact.
What are WestWon Dental doing locally?
With our Sales Director being based in Leeds himself, he has witnessed first hand an increasing problem with homelessness in the city. Therefore, he has taken it upon himself to participate it the Leeds Big Sleep. The Leeds Big Sleep is a fundraising event held at Headingley Stadium. Therefore participants sacrifice a night’s comfort to sleep out in the cold to get a feel for what it is like for homeless people every night. The money raised is then split between three charities: St George’s Crypt, St Gemma’s Hospice, and the Leeds Rhino Foundation.
What are WestWon Dental doing internationally?
For every dental finance agreement, we donate to the charity Wells On Wheels. This amazing charity provide easier means of women and children in rural India collecting water. This is done through the invention of the water wheel. The water wheel is a large water drum fitted with a long handle to make it easy to roll to and from the water source.
Before, women and children would have to walk miles with heavy pots of water on their heads. This then inevitably leads to physical ailments as well as lack of time spent in the classroom for children.
What are WestWon Dental doing globally?
More globally, the WestWon Woodland is benefitting us all. So far, we have planted 17,490 trees in various locations all around the world. And once the trees are fully grown, this will ultimately offset 580.705 tonnes of carbon. But we don’t plan on stopping here, we aim to have 100,000 trees planted in the WestWon Woodland by 2026.
We also make sure we are acting sustainably as we can as a company which means:
- The introduction of company Electric Vehicles
- No gas used in our offices
- LED lighting in our offices
- Thickest carpet and ceiling tiles to reduce our energy consumption
- Recycling bins on all floors of our offices to encourage recycling wherever we can
- Being a climate positive company (paying to offset all employee carbon emissions through climate positive projects around the world)
Anyway, enough about us
Good luck to all fellow finalists, we can’t wait to see you all at the awards ceremony next month!
