Hospital Dentists Group

The Hospitals Dentists Group supports dentists working in hospitals throughout the UK, by providing opportunities for high quality CPD, specially tailored to their needs and organises social and networking events and activities.

What does the Hospital Dentists Group do?

The Group's divisions work to develop local meetings and study days, events and courses and the Annual, Presidential and Scientific Conference is the highlights of the calendar.

The Group also promotes public health initiatives and campaigns and advises on research and clinical matters, of interest to hospital dentistry. 

We link with the Central Committee for Hospital Dental Services (CCHDS), who negotiate on terms and conditions of employment on behalf of hospital dentists. 

We aim to:
  • Promote the objectives and aims of the BDA, and to foster and maintain strong relationships between members of the Group, the CCHDS, and other areas of the dental profession
  • Assist and advise the BDA in promoting and safeguarding the interests of all hospital dentists
  • Advance the interests and profile of those working in the hospital dental service; by the cultivation of a professional spirit among members of the Group, and by consideration of subjects relevant to dental public health and science
  • Provide a forum to share information amongst those working in the hospital dental service and to provide a voice for those members 
  • Develop study days, events and courses and organise and promote the Annual Presidential and Scientific Meeting.
