BOQ Specialist and ADAVB announce recipient of $10,000 CPD bursary


Melbourne, 27 August 2019

Dr Anand Makwana, owner of Warragul Dental Care, was today announced as the recipient of the 2019 Australian Dental Association Victorian Branch (ADAVB) BOQ Specialist CPD Practice Bursary.

Now in its fifth consecutive year, the $10,000 bursary acknowledges dental practices committed to quality learning and provides further funding for professional development for practitioners and professional staff members.

Commenting on the award, Dr Makwana said, “We are so thrilled to be the recipients of the ADAVB BOQ Specialist CPD Practice Bursary. Our ability to deliver a first-class patient experience to our patients comes from having a team that is well trained in both customer service and the latest in dental technology. Our team is our biggest asset and we know that the bursary will be well invested into our ongoing learning environment where our local community will benefit from these learning experiences."

ADAVB President, Dr Gitika Sanghvi, said, “Dr Makwana and his team’s commitment to excellence, integrity, teamwork, training, learning and personal fulfilment made them a stand-out in the 2019 practice bursary applications. Their team-oriented approach means they deem success as delivering exceptional patient care experience for every patient. They have invested time and effort in exploring their values and together hold each other accountable.”

BOQ Specialist CEO, Hugh Lander, concluded, “BOQ Specialist has provided distinctive banking solutions to dentists for over 25 years and during this time, we have continually seen the benefits and opportunities that ongoing upskilling and training not only brings to practices, but to the wider community. We are proud to partner once again with the ADAVB to recognise an outstanding recipient in Dr Makwana, a practitioner who is both passionate about his people and his community. Dr Makwana’s commitment to the personal and professional development of all of his team members in order to deliver exceptional oral health care to the rural community of Warragul makes him a very deserving recipient of this year’s bursary.”

Dr Makwana and Warragul Dental Care will be profiled in ADAVB’s Victorian Dentist and BOQ Specialist’s ‘Best Practice’. In addition to a Certificate of Recognition, the $10,000 bursary includes $8000 to be applied to any CPD courses and training and $2000 for ADAVB CPD courses and training.
