Brian Schottlander wins award for Outstanding Contribution to Dentistry

On Friday 17th November at the Royal Garden Hotel, Kensington Brian Schottlander was presented with an award for Outstanding Contribution to Dentistry. The award was presented by Julian English, Editorial Director at FMC. 

Julian’s presentation speech:

“This year’s winner of the Outstanding contribution to dentistry award is a keen tennis player. 
After joining the family company, our winner took a variety of roles, before ultimately taking over as managing director in 1988. The company has grown considerably during his time at the helm and is now a global leader and manufacturer of specialist materials, gloves and denture teeth.  

He is an enthusiastic advocate of education and training within the profession and set up the Schottlander prize in association with the BSSPD, for the advancement of knowledge in prosthetic dentistry. 

Under his leadership the company received the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the Innovation Category on two occasions. The Queen’s Awards are described as ‘the highest honour that can be bestowed on a UK business’. 

Our winner has also been heavily involved in the British Dental Industry Association – with an unbroken record of two decades on the Council, including a term as president. And he is always at conferences and events with his wife Sue. 

Our winner received an Honorary Doctorate of Science from Birmingham University in 2001. 
He has also been a business mentor for the Princes Trust since 2003 and for outstanding services to UK dentistry, he was added to the British Dental Association’s Roll of Distinction last year. 

His commitment to education throughout the entire dental profession network is a beacon of light for other industry captains to follow. 

He is very well known in the dental industry and has worked hard for many years to develop the industry and sustain a successful business and is truly deserving of this award. 

And it gives me great pleasure to give the 2017 outstanding contribution to dentistry award to a colleague and friend for 22 years, Dr Brian Schottlander”.
