BSPD spokesperson and author of the Toothfairyblog.org, Claire Stevens, was recently awarded a CBE in the New Year’s Honours List for services to children’s oral health.

She was presented with the award by His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales. Afterwards, she commented, “I am inspired by countless colleagues from the field of paediatric dentistry, past and present, who have brought recognition to our specialty.

“I speak for them and for the millions of children in the UK who have a right to the best possible start to their oral health. I believe our Dental Check by One campaign is axiomatic to delivering on our aim and to reducing inequalities and I am truly grateful to all those who have supported the campaign.”
