Dentistry today

We know dentists do exceptional things, every day. But we want to show the world what dentistry looks like in the UK today, and we are celebrating the clinicians, the teachers and the innovators that make up our profession.

​As the professional association for dentist 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.


Dentistry: Many roles, one profession

To showcase the diverse roles dentists do, we've featured five dentists working in different areas of expertise, in the video below.





Every year on 24 May, we celebrate #dentistry24, an independent campaign to promote positive dentistry across the world.


This social media campaign launched in 2018 and we supported on our social media channels.


Watch this space for our focus for the campaign for 2019...


Tell us about your day...

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.


If you are interested in taking part, please get in touch.
