About the BDA in Scotland Office
The BDA in Scotland represents all dentists and dental students in Scotland. Members working in all branches of dentistry in Scotland receive dedicated support, advice and guidance from the BDA Scotland office. Working closely with colleagues in BDA offices throughout the UK and with elected members, BDA Scotland seeks to improve conditions for the delivery of dental services across the country, negotiating directly with the Scottish Government. BDA Scotland also seeks to influence other key-decision makers, including educational institutions, political parties, and statutory and non-statutory bodies.
There are three BDA Branches in Scotland, some of which are divided into Sections. This ensures members can be represented and network at a local level. Varied programmes of clinical and social events help raise the profile of the organisation and the profession with a local perspective.
For more information on a particular branch, simply click on the map in the BDA Branches and Sections area.
The programme of events varies and details are available from BDA Events.
