Paying tribute to Dr Uchenna Okoye, industry expert and Advisory Board member

by | Sep 21, 2023

Following the sudden passing of Dr Uchenna Okoye, a true industry trailblazer and esteemed colleague, the British Beauty Council offers its utmost condolences to her loved ones and all those touched by her dynamism

Cosmetic dentist, and British Beauty Council Advisory Board member, Dr Uchenna Okoye died suddenly earlier this week. 

Okoye made a unique contribution to raising the reputation of the industry via her work across media, television, her clinics and brands. On top of running two London-based dental practices and having her range of ‘MySmile’ dental products, Okoye provided her unique expertise to the Council and reached millions of viewers via ITV’s This Morning. 

Serving as a British Beauty Council Advisor since 2021, Okoye provided a unique service to the Council in her dedication to promoting dental health for all and reinforcing the Value of Beauty for Britain’s social footprint. 

Speaking to the British Beauty Council earlier this year, the respected expert said: ‘A person’s smile is universal, it’s used every day as the ultimate accessory.’ Which highlights the power of her work to enhance the lives of many throughout her career. 

Millie Kendall OBE, chief executive officer of the British Beauty Council, said: ‘I had the pleasure of calling Dr Uchenna a colleague and friend, not only did she make a unique mark on the dental health sector but she also had the ability to spread unique joy in every social and professional setting. Her dedication to providing equitable and accessible care across the population was unmatched, Uchenna truly was one of a kind.’ 

Our thoughts are with Dr Okoye’s family and loved ones during this challenging time as they navigate the loss of a remarkable individual.
