Locally organised events

Live online lectures and face-to-face events hosted by your Branch, Section and Divisional local officers covering a wide range of subjects.

The majority of the locally organised events and webinars are open to members, non-members and dental care professionals.


Don't forget, you can attend any Branch, Section, Young Dentist Group or Salaried Services Group webinar, no matter where you are in the country!  


Branch and Section events

The BDA has an active network of 21 branches, many divided into sections and some with a young dentist group, ensuring local representation and the ability for members to network at a local level.


The Branches, Sections and Young Dentist Groups offer a varied programme of educational events and webinars on both clinical and general topics plus social events to help raise the profile of the BDA and the profession from a local perspective. These local meetings also offer a great way of network. 


Branch membership links to your postal address but you can receive details from other Branches or Sections, perhaps closer to where you work. To receive information on other area's meetings please contact the Local Services Team branchsectionevents@bda.org or call 020 7563 4590.

Within the BDA Branches and Sections in some areas across the UK, the Young Dentist Groups aim to bring together younger members in their local area for social events, clinical lectures, and much more. Where an event has been organised by a Young Dentist Group, you will still find the information in the link above.

The Salaried Services Groups include the Armed Forces, Community Dental Services and Hospital dentists, each of which organise events and webinars on a national and local level.
