We provide first local point of contact for BDA members living and working in Scotland, as well as providing strategic support and advice to BDA committees in Scotland.

BDA Scotland and its elected committee members seek to improve conditions for the delivery of dental services across the country, negotiating directly with the Scottish Government.


Dentists working in Scotland are represented through the Scottish Council, the Scottish Dental Practice Committee, the Scottish Public Dental Service Committee and the Scottish Hospital Dentists Reference Group.

Scotland is also represented through one seat on our board, which sets our policy and strategic direction.

We also seek to influence other key-decision makers, including educational institutions, political parties and statutory, and non-statutory organisations.

Our committees meet regularly to consider the issues affecting the dental profession and patient care. BDA representatives take these issues forward into discussion and negotiation with the Scottish Government and the range of bodies responsible for delivery of health and social care.
