  • The BDA is the association membership body available for all dentists in the UK, consequently our events are key dates to meet and engage with dentists

  • By exhibiting at BDA events and activities you are helping support dentistry, as the BDA’s sole purpose of running events is to support the profession

  • Dentists have the time at BDA events to research, source and engage with organisations, therefore our events are a valuable occasion for the industry and dental profession to engage.
