​​Why attend?

Our three day event will offer you the chance to gain verifiable CPD - including the GDC's recommended subjects, network with your peers and learn about the latest innovations and technologies at our exhibition.

It is an unmissable event in the UK dentistry calendar, attracting over 4500 dental professionals across the three days.

The BDA is owned and run by its members. We are a not-for-profit organisation; all our income is reinvested for the benefit of the profession. 

​"The lectures invigorate your practising styles, ideas and methods."

Dr Penelope Green, Her Majesty's Armed Forces


Our programme

Our superb conference programme is designed by dentists for dentists and their teams, giving you the dental knowledge and insights you need.

The result of research with dentists and input from across the dental profession, our programme provides you with the latest thinking in dentistry, delivered by some of the best speakers in the business.

"Quality of lecturers reignited passion for my job where normal working under the NHS just crushes it.
It helped me remember why I trained and enjoyed the job."

Dentist, South Yorkshire
