A University of Portsmouth Dental Academy Director has won a teaching award at the King’s College London annual awards. Dr David Radford, the Director of Clinical Studies, was awarded the Kings award for contribution to outstanding student experience.
Dr Radford said: “It is a great honour to be recognised for all the hard work that all the staff and our student colleagues at the Academy put into patient care and the student experience.”
“The staff and students work together, not just to learn but also to enjoy the journey together and have a shared responsibility to provide a great dental experience for our patients.”
Dr Radford was awarded for strategically leading the chance for dental students to undertake outreach work at the university, with personalised teaching and mentoring focused on whole patient case and inter-professional education with other dental care professionals.
The King’s awards are for members of staff to be recognised for outstanding contributions to the college. University of Portsmouth Dental Academy staff are included as the University’s major collaboration with the King’s College London Dental Institute.
The Dental Academy is a training facility developed in partnership between the University of Portsmouth, King’s College London Dental Institute and the National Health Service.
