The British Association of Dental Nurses (BADN) is delighted that its membership has increased by almost 60% during 2016.
President Jane Dalgarno said: ‘We are delighted that even more dental nurses are realising the benefits of BADN membership, and that BADN offers value for money. Although registered dental nurses have always been required to have adequate indemnity cover, many were not aware of this – and the GDC's new requirement to confirm adequate cover when re-registering has brought this requirement to the fore. BADN Full Membership is, of course, available with indemnity cover designed specifically for dental nurses, as part of the membership package.
‘BADN also offers many other membership benefits, as well as the opportunity to shape the future of dental nursing.’
BADN membership is open to all dental nurses, both registered and student, from all areas of dentistry. Full membership is open to registered dental nurses and available both with and without indemnity cover, with slightly lower rates for those working part time. Associate membership is open to retired and overseas dental nurses.
Student Associate e-membership is available to student dental nurses.
