Make your voice heard: Share your experience of working in dentistry

14 June 2018

The BDA is calling on general dental and specialist practitioners to share their experiences of working in dental practice across the UK.

A sample of BDA members have been sent a unique link to the survey, please check your inbox (or your junk folders) for our email entitled 'Share your views: major survey of UK GDPs'. 

We are asking for just 10-15 minutes of your time to help us provide insights into the pressures facing the dental workforce in 2018.

Your answers will help us shape the vital work we undertake on behalf of the dental profession and will provide the key evidence in our annual report to the government's pay review body (DDRB). 

The survey asks about your motivation, job satisfaction, morale, well-being and future career intentions. We are also keen to hear your views on working patterns and hours and on issues you may face retaining or recruiting associates, if this applies to you.

As a thank you for your time, you could win a £100 gift card at the end of the survey.

Be assured that your information will remain anonymous, and we will not pass your details on to any third parties.


Campaigning for fairer pay and working conditions for dentists

Each year, the BDA submits evidence to the Review Body on Doctors' and Dentists' Remuneration (DDRB), and argues the case for a fairer deal for dentists in terms of pay and working conditions. Our next report (for 2019/20) will be published in the autumn.


If you'd like to be kept informed about developments on this issue, make sure your details are up-to-date on your MyBDA record and tick the box under 'contact preferences' to get latest news updates. 


We campaign on a range of issues affecting dentists and dentistry today. We make sure that dentists' views are represented when it comes to health policy being developed by government and other key organisations: join us.
