About the BDA

The British Dental Association (BDA) is the professional association and trade union for dentists in the United Kingdom and was founded in 1880. As an organisation that is owned entirely by its members and with no external shareholders, the BDA is able to focus solely on its mission to promote the interests of its members; advance the science, arts and ethics of dentistry; and improve the nation's oral health.

Springer Nature publishes BDJ Open in partnership with the BDA. As well as BDJ Open, Springer Nature also publishes the British Dental Journal, Evidence-Based Dentistry, BDJ Team, BDJ In Practice and BDJ Student on behalf of the BDA.
