BACD Young Dentist Day 2021

Home / Meetings / BACD Young Dentist Day 2021

Due to new government guidelines, we have come to the conclusion that we will be UNABLE to hold this event as scheduled during 2020. We have therefore moved the whole event to Saturday 25 September 2021

Please note that you are currently purchasing a WEBCAST ticket, which will allow you to watch the lectures live from the comfort of your own home.

We hope that guidelines will be relaxed by September 2021, and we can open up more physical spaces at the event, so watch this space!
