Scotland

The British Dental Association has three active Branches in Scotland:

  • East of Scotland Branch
  • North of Scotland Branch
  • West of Sc​otland Branch



There are several Sections within those Branches ensuring local representation and the ability for members to network at local level.

BDA Branches and Sections offer a varied programme of educational events both clinical and general topics plus social events to help raise the profile of the BDA and the profession from a local perspective. These local meetings also offer a great way of networking with other dental professionals.

 

Members are not restricted to their allocated Branch and Section and are welcome at any BDA Branch or Section meeting.

​Branch out with branches and sections

The BDA has now made it easier to keep up to date with local branches and sections events and activities by allowing members to add a secondary branch to their profile.

This will allow members to receive information from a branch closer to work or home (or vice versa). Please email the Branch and Section Support Team to add a secondary branch to your profile.


Want to get involved?

The local Branch and section committees are often looking for help with organising and facilitating meetings. If you would like more information or would like to get involved in this way contact the Branch and Section Support Team or speak to your local Branch or section secretary.
