The British Society of Paediatric Dentistry (BSPD) is the national society specifically concerned with the oral health of children in the UK.

It aims to improve oral health in children and encourage the highest standards of clinical care.

BSPD has over 500 members from university and hospital Paediatric Dental departments, the community dental service, specialist paediatric dental practice and general dental practice. Undergraduate students, dental therapists, hygienists and other dental auxiliaries are also encouraged to join at specially reduced rates.

The Society has representation on various committees and bodies involved in the development of oral health strategies, and has produced policy documents on various aspects of oral health and dental care for children.

The Society has thirteen regional branches which meet locally on a regular basis. These meetings have an educational as well as a social function, and include talks by speakers invited to update members about new developments in the field and its associated specialities.

If you would like further information about the Society and membership, please view the Membership section or contact the BSPD Administrator.
