Trowbridge dental practice Coleman & Starkey has been honoured by the British Dental Association (BDA) for achieving a 10-year membership of a scheme recognising high standards.

The practise, in Timbrell Street, is one of around 200 surgeries across the country to have the BDA’s good practise scheme gold membership. BDA president Barry McGonigle said: “A practice’s membership of the BDA’s good practice scheme demonstrates its commitment to high standards and recognises the efforts of its whole team to work together to achieve excellence and deliver high-quality, patient-centred care.”

Mike Coleman and Mike Starkey, who run the practice, said they are thrilled with their achievement.

Mr Coleman said: “We are delighted that the care and professionalism of our whole dental team has been recognised by national bodies governing clinical excellence, it really is fantastic.”
