Dr Matthew White was all smiles last weekend when he picked up Businesspreson of the Year at the annual Campbelltown Local Business Awards.
The Family Dental Care dentist said the night was something of his 'swan song'.
"This is the sweetest, best award I've ever received," he said. "And it's particularly nice this year as it is my last as a dentist before heading into semi-retirement."
Dr White has worked in Campbelltown for almost 30 years, growing to know many local families through his practice. He said it was a lovely recognition to receive the award.
"During these times, with Covid being upon the community, this just shows you the value of a community that holds together," he said.
"We should all support our local communities and employ local people - we all need to look after each other. I thank all my patients and hope you will be more than satisfied with Family Dental Care's new owners, who have my full endorsement."
