DB Orthodontics Ltd - DB Orthodontics Ltd - winners of the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade.











In April 2013 DB Orthodontics were announced as winners of the Queen's Award for Enterprise in International Trade. The Queen’s Award is the United Kingdom's most prestigious business award, given in recognition of outstanding achievement in International Trade.

The awards are made annually by Her Majesty The Queen, given on the advice of the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom assisted by an Advisory Committee. The judging panel consider turnover, market share and measures taken to increase trade. In winning the Queen's Award, DB Orthodontics demonstrated outstanding performance in each category, with the export department achieving record sales and entering a number of new markets. With a strong distribution network covering over 50 markets in six different continents across the globe, the company is perfectly placed to continue to build upon this success.

As winners of the Queen's Award, the Directors of DB Orthodontics, David and Christian Burdess, were invited to a reception at Buckingham Palace where they were personally congratulated by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.  Also in attendance during the reception were Prince Andrew, Duke of York, Princess Beatrice of York, Princess Eugenie of York, Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex, Sophie, Countess of Wessex and Prince Edward, Duke of Kent

"It is a great honour to be congratulated by The Queen on winning such a prestigious award. It was a very special evening and one which I will remember for a long time. It is a culmination of many years of hard work by the DB team of which I'm very proud; bringing our vision of becoming a global leader in orthodontic and laboratory supplies a step closer." - David Burdess

DB Orthodontics have come a long way since David Burdess established the company in 1998. In those days the company consisted of just two members of staff, David and his son Christian, operating out of a small room in the family home. It was not long before the business had outgrown these humble surroundings and David and Christian moved into a new office space in the market town of Skipton, North Yorkshire.

From here, the team began to grow as DB Orthodontics started to develop their own product range. Today, the company operates out of a purpose built warehouse occupying 22,000 sq ft, housing an extensive product range. David remains as the Managing Director, whilst Christian is now the Marketing Director and is responsible for the day to day running of the company alongside his sister, Victoria Coppack (Sales Director).

Christian and Victoria are supported by a team of 28 highly trained members of staff, with exciting plans in 2014 for future expansion of both building and workforce in order to accommodate the increase in business and to enable continued growth into new markets.

Despite this growth, DB Orthodontics are proud to remain a family company:
"Our company philosophy places importance on the individual customer’s requirements. We recognise that every customer is different and we appreciate the importance of individual care and attention. Enthusiasm, commitment and integrity are essential to our success. We have a fantastic team and we are excited to see the company continue to grow." - Victoria Coppack
