Anyone who has achieved a certain level of success at school, at work or just in their daily lives knows that hard work often does pay off in the end. At South Surrey Smiles, we are very happy to have recently been recognized for the hard work and dedication our entire team has shown this past year. Top Choice Awards has just named our orthodontist’s office the Best Orthodontist in Vancouver, and everyone at South Surrey Smiles is extremely proud to have been given such a high honour. We are all aware that Top Choice Awards are presented after a business or company has received a number of positive reviews and nominations, so we would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who took the time to nominate South Surrey Smiles as Vancouver’s Top Orthodontist!
Since we opened our doors, it has been our goal to consistently provide each and every one of our patients with the absolute best in terms of orthodontic care in a fun and relaxed environment. Our entire team of friendly orthodontic experts pride themselves on helping patients of all ages feel welcome and comfortable during their time in our office. Outside of our office, we enjoy maintaining a positive presence in our community, by supporting local charities and running events throughout the Greater Vancouver area like our annual pancake breakfast. It is very gratifying to be recognized by this wonderful community, and although we certainly don’t do it for the awards, it always feels good to know our work is appreciated!
The Top Choice Award is one of the highest honours any local business or organization can achieve within their community because nominees and winners are selected entirely by local consumers and patrons. The Top Choice Award is presented in multiple categories to a vast number of different types of companies and local businesses, but in order to receive an official nomination certain criteria must be met by all candidates. One particular criteria that everyone at South Surrey Smiles is most proud of, is the fact that so many of our current and former patients took the time to nominate our office as the top orthodontist in the area. Each nominee must have a minimum of 25 nominations, and over 75% of online reviews must be positive. Even just to be nominated and highly regarded by so many of our valued patients is something for which we are all extremely grateful. Having actually won this year’s Top Choice Award is truly humbling, so once again on behalf of the entire team at South Surrey Smiles, thank you for giving us a reason to show off our brightest smiles!
