The Australian Dental Association Inc. (ADA) extends its congratulations to Dr Bruce Stewart on being recently presented with the Rotary Award for Vocational Excellence.
Dr Stewart was President of ADA New South Wales Branch in 1996 and has been a member of an advisory committee to Independent member for New England Tony Windsor in formulation of dental health policy.
Fellow dentist Dr Paul Hagley, from the Rotary Club of Tamworth Sunrise, nominated Dr Stewart for the prestigious award and told of his many achievements. Dr Hagley described Dr Stewart as “a beacon of what it means to be a member of a profession in healthcare that puts the interest and wellbeing of patients before their own economic gain. Most significant was Bruce's desire to help those people in our community disadvantaged or with disabilities, regularly seeing patients from Bullimbal and often forgoing payment.”
The Rotary Award for Vocational Excellence is a district award for an individual, Rotarian or non-Rotarian, who has a record of commitment and high achievement in their chosen vocation that has been to the advancement of that vocation and the nation.
