What is the Princess Royal Training Awards?
In 2017, Princess Royal conferred the Princess Royal Training Award to Dr.Raj Wadhwani, the Clinical Director of Antwerp Dental Group. The award was in recognition of focused training initiatives on clinical and support personnel that resulted in a measurable improvement in employee and business performance as a result of focused training activity. This performance is measured in a number of ways:
- a measurable improvement in staff satisfaction as a result of the contribution they offer the business
- an measurable increase in the number of staff who feel fulfilled, manifest by staff surveys or a reduction in staff turnover
- a measurable increase in the number of patients who are satisfied with our service
- an increase in patient numbers
- an measurable increase in commercial viability of the group
To date, Antwerp Dental Group is the only practice in England and Wales to have achieved such prestigious recognition.
