​Recent updates



​We have produced side agreements to help practice owners and associates in England and Wales adapt their pre-coronavirus commercial arrangements to the current situation.


This agreement suspends the operation of UDAs and requires both parties to adhere to guidance from NHS England and the Health Board in Wales. This includes guidance on pay and requirements for providing dental services.

The side agreements are designed to complement the BDA written associate agreements.
