GDPC Associates Group

The General Dental Practice Committee Associates Group aims to represent the interests and concerns of those working as associates in general dental practice across the UK.

​What is the Associates Group?

The Associates Group is a working group of the General Dental Practice Committee (GDPC) and aims to give a voice to the wide range of associates doing varied roles across the UK, at all stages of their careers.


The group is comprised of dental associates working in different fields of practice, elected from the GDPC and BDA Young Dentists Committee, as well as a number of associates co-opted from outside the BDA’s committees, and includes both younger and mid-career dentists.



Want to get involved?

Seats on BDA Committees can become available during term periods, and if so, by-elections are held. If you are interested in finding out how to take part in and becoming a representative, please get in touch with our elections team elections@bda.org.
