Dr Levecke – 2015 bursary winner

BOQ Specialist and the Australian Dental Association Victoria (ADAVB) have joined up to put together a professional development grant to help with continued learning.

The winner will receive a bursary of $10,000—$8,000 for training and CPD, and $2,000 for registration to ADAVB CPD courses. The recipient practice will also be featured in BOQ Specialist’s Best Practice magazine and profiled by the ADAVB.

This will the second ADAVB/BOQ specialist CPD practice bursary designed to acknowledge practices in Victoria that are dedicated to furthering the learning and development of their practitioners and staff members.

Dr Stephen Liew, president of the ADAVB said he was pleased at the chance BOQ Specialist is offering for the continuing education of Victorian dentists.

“We are delighted that BOQ Specialist has confirmed its commitment to the dentistry community in Victoria with this professional development bursary,” he said. “This initiative serves ADAVB’s core objective: to maintain dentistry practice standards for the benefit and protection of the public and dental staff.”

Dr Brett Robinson, BOQ Specialist’s CEO was equally pleased to be offering the bursary to a worthy winner.

“BOQ Specialist’s years of experience providing distinctive banking solutions to dentists, has given us the knowledge to understand the importance of upskilling and the opportunities that training can bring to practices,” he said. “We are proud to award another practice with this bursary program recognising the training and development that dentists undertake in order to deliver the highest quality care to their clients.”

Last year’s recipient, Dr Levecke was particularly complimentary of the work the bursary had helped her do.

“The bursary has helped Blackburn Dental Group to go above and beyond the development needs of our staff members so we can continue to offer local families and communities a best-in-class dentistry experience,” she said.

Submissions are open until 20 May 2016 and ADAVB member private practices can apply here.
