Dentists working in Salaried Primary Dental Care are supported and represented through a committee and specialist group.
The Salaried Dentists Committee (SDC) is an autonomous committee of the
BDA and is concerned with all matters that affect those dentists who
work in this area and in salaried Personal Dental Services. In February
2009, dental public health consultants and Specialist Registrars who
were previously represented by the now defunct Central Committee for
Community and Public Health Dentistry (CCCPHD) underwent a transferral
of representation and are now represented by the Central Committee for
Hospital Dental Services (CCHDS).
The Community Dental Services Group supports salaried dentists by
providing opportunities for high quality Continuing Professional
Development, tailored specifically to their needs and a newsletter
updates members with meeting dates, news and current affairs. For more
