About the BACD The BACD Charter Mission and Values Board of Directors Charity Affiliations

The British Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry was formed in November 2003 by a group of dentists, many of them leading practitioners in the field of cosmetic dentistry, who saw a need to share their knowledge with others. The aim is to create a dynamic, active group of dentists and laboratory technicians; however the role of all other members of the team – hygienists, practice managers and assistants – in the overall aesthetic experience are equally important.

We plan to create an environment where everyone can come together to share their knowledge and experiences, so that everyone can become better at what they do – regardless of their level of prior knowledge. Currently any dentist can offer cosmetic dentistry irrespective of their training or experience beyond the basic dental degree. There are no specialist qualifications and no specialist register. Techniques constantly progress and the public are becoming increasingly dentally educated and discerning so it’s essential to stay up-to-date.

I am truly privileged and humbled to be the BACD President this year.

It is an honour to lead an Academy, that I have been a member of for many years, and continue the great work of previous Presidents and Boards.
