Smile360 Dental Specialist Clinic has clinched the Nigerian Healthcare Excellence Award (NHEA) for the seventh year for delivering exceptional dental services and setting the benchmark for excellence in the Nigerian Dental industry.

In a virtual interview with journalists, the Founder and CEO of Smile360, Dr Amy Shumbusho said: “We are incredibly honored to have been recognized by the esteemed Nigerian Healthcare Excellence Awards for a seventh time.

“This prestigious recognition is a testament to our unwavering dedication to excellence and our mission to provide our patients with the highest quality dental care.”

While acknowledging their tireless efforts to provide high-quality dental care to patients, Dr. Shumbusho said the clinic’s consistent recognition from NHEA further underscores its efforts and motivation to continue pushing boundaries and setting new standards in dentistry.

The annual NHEA awards  recognizes outstanding achievements and innovation within the healthcare sector, highlighting the efforts of organizations which have significantly contributed to healthcare service delivery in Nigeria. 

Dr Shumbusho recounts that Smile360 boasts several unique strengths and qualities, courtesy of its highly skilled and experienced team of dental professionals dedicated to delivering excellent care to patients with state-of-the art equipment and cutting-edge technology.

“We also prioritize patient comfort and convenience by offering a wide range of services under one roof, while our facilities provide a sense of serenity & a physical ambience which helps relax and soothe our patients by utilizing state-of-the-art equipment and technology,” she outlined.

The award, she is confident, would inspire Smile360 to continuously improve its services, invest in the latest technologies, and further enhance the patient experience.

Not oblivious to the various challenges rampant in the nation’s Health sector, Dr. Amy Shumbusho admitted that dentistry in Nigeria faces significant challenges due to the current trends of medical tourism and “brain drain”. 

She pointed out that many skilled dental professionals were leaving the Country, resulting in a deficiency of competent practitioners.

“These issues impact the quality and accessibility of dental care in Nigeria,” says Smile360 Clinical Director. “The government and other stakeholders must create an enabling environment encouraging dental professionals to stay in the Country and attract those who left to return.”

To achieve this feat, the CEO recommended competitive salaries and benefits, improved working conditions, and more opportunities for professional growth and development.

Dr. Shumbusho also highlighted some pragmatic steps the government could employ to promote local patronage of dental care and curb medical tourism.

“The government can invest in the infrastructure and resources necessary to provide high-quality dental care within the Country.

“This includes improving dental facilities, ensuring the availability of modern equipment, and promoting the continuing education and training of dental professionals,” she outlined.

She also endorsed collaboration with private dental clinics to develop affordable and accessible dental care packages for all citizens. 

“The government needs to conduct public awareness campaigns to educate Nigerians about the benefits of receiving dental care locally and the risks associated with medical tourism,” she said further.
