Event highlights during 2018
The dentist will see you now...
We hosted a free event showcasing the collections of 13 medical museums from across London on 27 October, entitled 'Up close and medical', in collaboration with London Museums of Medicine and Health.
Over 150 visitors got to grips with exploring how to extract a tooth in Tudor times and Victorian times at the BDA Museum stand.
We were proud to support the Wellcome Collection's national 'Teeth' exhibition from May until September - the first of it's kind in the UK, focusing on teeth and oral health.We loaned over 60 objects and provided our expertise and advice.
Wellcome Collection's Head of Programmes, James Peto, gave an exclusive tour of the exhibition for our stakeholders, including MPs and peers. The exhibition also looked at dentistry today, featuring a video exploring dental anxiety, with BDA England Community Dental Service Committee Chair Charlotte Waite, talking about treating nervous and anxious dental patients.
