Best Employer Award Category

The team at Eilertsen Dental Care would like to nominate Dr Eilert Eilertsen and Dr Margaret Eilertsen for Dentistry Scotland Best Employer award 2013.  We feel they whole heartedly deserve recognition for this award and it would be a fabulous accolade to them both and a huge thank you from us all at the practice.

Always leading from the front they are truly inspirational to the staff and are keen to include our thoughts, ideas and take our opinions into consideration while keeping up with the ever changing world of technology and dentistry.   They inspire confidence in their team members and as leaders have excellent vision for the business and dentistry.

Being excellent dental practitioners, patient care is of paramount importance. Patient care always comes first and most of the patients regard them as friends and confidants.  We would go as far to say that it has been noted that some patients purposely arrive early for their appointments to enjoy the waiting area.  They may not look forward to all aspects of dental treatment but do enjoy a relaxed read of papers and magazines whilst having a chat and coffee!  Our patients know they receive the best care by two of the professions most highly skilled dental surgeons whilst being made to feel at ease throughout their time in the clinic.

Along with Dr Eilert and Margaret Eilertsen our team consists of Jackie Thain (Receptionist) Lindsey Munro (Head Dental Nurse) Louise Shenfield (Hygienist) Sophie Polworth and Francesca Bain (Dental Nurses) and Diane Patience (Accounts Manager).

Jackie Thain started working for the Eilertsen’s in 1978 as a dental nurse in their first joint practice in the Ross shire town of Dingwall.  After a break to raise a young family, Jackie was asked to return to work part time to nurse with Margaret Eilertsen in 1990 and has been with the Eilertsen’s ever since.
Qualifying as a dental nurse in 1996 and shortly after that as an Oral Health Educator, Jackie feels  the Eilertsen’s gave fantastic support and encouragement.  She has been receptionist since 1997 and is the familiar welcoming face the patients have come to expect on their arrival.

When Eilert and Margaret decided to open Eilertsen Dental Care in Inverness in 2010 Jackie, Lindsey, Louise and Diane had no hesitation in joining them to commence an exciting new venture and were consulted in the planning and decor of the practice throughout.

I cannot praise them highly enough and they thoroughly deserve this accolade.
