Susie Sanderson OBE


A general dentist and practice owner for many years, Susie is now a Dentolegal Adviser for Dental Protection (MPS), President-Elect of the British Dental Association (BDA) and Speaker of the General Assembly of the World Dental Federation (FDI).

She was the elected Chair of the British Dental Association's Executive Board from 2006 to 2012 and a member of the Principal Executive Committee until 2015. Currently a member of its Health and Science Committee, Susie continues to represent the BDA on issues relating to the Minamata Treaty, the implementation of the EU Mercury Regulation and on dentistry's significance in reducing Antimicrobial Resistance.    

Susie has been involved in the BDA and LDC at local and national level for a number of years enjoying a wide scope of involvement including education, finance, healthcare policy, GDPC, DCPs, students and young dentists. She chaired the UK Conference of Local Dental Committees in 2005.

Internationally, Susie was until recently a Board member and Treasurer of the Council of European Dentists and continues as a UK delegate. She is chair of the CED's Amalgam and Other Restorative Materials Working Group and leads the work of the Antimicrobial Resistance Task Force.   

Susie represents FDI and its Science Committee on issues relating to AMR in dentistry and was recently one of the speakers in the AMR Forum at the Madrid Annual Congress of FDI.

In her day job, Susie does many things but tends to focus on supporting Dental Protection members undergoing GDC investigations to develop a portfolio of evidence to ensure they are able to demonstrate that their fitness to practice is not impaired. 

In the 2012 New Year's honours list, Susie received the OBE for services to dentistry.

Susie was BDA President in 2018/19.
