This is the professional association and trade union for dentists in the UK and was founded in 1880. Its membership currently stands at around 23,000 dentists comprising members from all aspects of dentistry including NHS, private, general dental practice, Hospital and other salaried services.
The Northern Counties Branch provides a link between the dentists in the North East and Cumbria and the policy and decision making groups of the association. The structure of the association provides the opportunity to integrate everyday clinical experience into the day to day operations and policies of the BDA. The BDA also has a supportive and advisory role to dentists, it produces a number of publications such as the British Dental Journal and BDA News to keep dentists updated with current issues in dentistry.
