Who is speaking?
There are three speakers delivering this lecture series:

- Professor Nairn Wilson CBE, former Dean of Kings Dental Institute and BDA President 2015-16
- Dr Richard Birkin, BDA Head of Advice Liaison and Development, former GDP and Clinical Policy Advisor
How will the lecture help me?

- Overview of your dental career options
- Routes in to each career pathway
- Case studies from experienced practitioners
- Patient demographics and the future of dentistry
- How changing patient demographics may affect your career choices
"Students in my year found it very informative. A lot of them didn't realise there were as many career options open to them post-graduation."
Rachel Goldsmith, Glasgow Dental School
Do I need to book?
No, there's no need to book, just arrive on time. The lecture is open to both members and non-members. As lectures for 2017/18 are booked in, they will be added to the timetable below.
The BDA's Career Guide is the supporting material for this lecture. It includes useful advice from experienced dentists who give their opinions on a range of careers, a detailed overview on different career paths, plus tips for succeeding in your chosen career. Copies of the new guide were posted out to fourth year student members in autumn 2017.
If you are not a member and would like a copy you can join in the lecture, online or over the phone on 020 7563 4550.
Student membership is only £2.34 a month or £28 a year. New members get other benefits too.
