British Dental Association.
The British Dental Association (BDA) is a trade union for dental professionals.mIt provides a collective representation of the profession in its dealings with governments and employing authorities. This professional organisation promotes policies which benefit dental practice and dental care, and champion higher standards.
The BDA lobbies politicians on legislation affecting dentists as business people and clinicians, and on issues such as dental student debt, care for special needs patients and commissioning and contract arrangements. In Europe the organization lobbies the commission and the European parliament (well for the next two years at least), and its influence extends throughout the world.
Leader in science and research
The BDA publishes the British Dental Journal and promotes the role of evidence-based dental care.
The organsation also runs an annual conference and exhibition.
Members and membership
The BDA is owned and run by its members. It is a not-for-profit organisation with all income reinvested for the benefit of the profession.
Since the early years the challenges and opportunities within dentistry have changed dramatically. The BDA has grown and developed to meet those challenges and now provides a highly differentiated mix of support, representation and services to all dentists within the UK.
