The BDJ Clinical Guide series has been discontinued. Expert members are no longer able to claim a complimentary copy, however members will still be able to access many titles through the BDA library​​.
If you are not yet registered with our library, don't miss out, email us in order to obtain a password. If you haven't yet, subscribe to our monthly clinical newsletter where you can obtain CPD hours through BDJ articles.
Please note that we are unable to provide one-to-one support for issues that pre-date your membership and concern a dispute with an existing BDA member. Join and be covered.
