A dentist from Cheshire has been selected to be given a fellowship from the British Dental Association (BDA) for his long service to the industry.
Dr Lester Ellman becomes only the third professional to be handed the honour so far this year, as part of the BDA’s Honours and Awards for 2012.
According to a report by the Ellesmere Port Pioneer, the specialist has practised dentistry for nearly 50 years and has always been based in the north-west of England.
BDA president Frank Holloway stated he is pleased to be able to mark the dedication of Dr Ellman through the award of the fellowship to the individual.
“The dental profession can be proud that it counts among its ranks an individual of such calibre,” he said.
Dr Ellman will receive his prize from the BDA at a special ceremony that is set to be held in London later in the year.
The BDA, which was founded more than 130 years ago, is the professional association and trade union for dentists in the UK.
