Why join the BDA

Support you throughout your career

We provide advice to our members on a huge range of issues such as:


  • Employment law
  • Health and safety
  • The NHS
  • Business support
  • And regulatory inspections

Represent your interests

We make sure that dentists' voices are heard by decision makers across the UK.


We negotiate directly with government to secure a better deal for dentists on issues like contracts, pensions and pay.


We speak up for dentists and dentistry in the media.


We make the case for changes to law, policy and practice to improve the oral health of the nation.





Get covered

To protect the interests of members we don't advise dentists with issues that they became aware of before they joined. Become a member - get covered.
