Dentistry today

​As the professional association for dentists in the UK, we work to promote a positive image of dentistry. The work of many dentists goes unsung and we want to celebrate the contributions our members and dentists across the UK make, in all fields of practice.

We are dentistry


In this video, we showcase the work of five dentists, doing very different roles across dentistry in the UK.


Help us tell the world about dentistry

We are seeking case studies from dentists and dental care professionals to feature on our website, which help to showcase the different roles and career paths dentists do, to help us tell the world about UK dentistry.


Would you like to share the work you do and help us promote the profession? Please get in touch for more information.




Every year on 24 May, for 24-hours we celebrate #Dentistry24 online, an independent campaign to promote the positive impact and experiences of the dentistry profession, across the world. 


This is a great opportunity to connect and share what you are doing in practice, promote your work, get your successes seen, and publicly thank your colleagues and teams for their contributions.

Better oral health for all

Dentists are critical to the health of the nation and we want to see better oral health for all. We stand up for dentists, so they can deliver the very best care for their patients. 

What we do

  • Promote the interests of our members
  • Advance the art, science and ethics of dentistry
  • Work to improve the nation's oral health

As the professional organisation for dentistry and as a representative body, we campaign for better terms working lives for dentists across the UK, working in all fields of practice - join us.
