A talented dentist has been recognised nationally for his hard work.

Jonathon Worton, 33, of Gidea Park, won the prize for the “best young dentist” in London at the 2016 National Dentistry Awards, held in Leicester.

Jonathon works at the Gidea Park Dental Practice, Main Road, alongside his role as a clinical teacher at Guy’s Dental Hospital, Southwark.

The Cambridge and Oxford alumni was commended for his ability to put nervous patients at ease with minimally-invasive dentistry, as well as his easy-going, warm and friendly manner.

Jonathon was also praised for playing an active role in the community by visiting primary schools in the borough to promote oral hygiene and healthy eating among students and staff.

“To have been shortlisted by such a distinguished panel of judges was an honour,” said Jonathon.

“To be selected as the winner is truly amazing.”
