Promoting high standards in veterinary dentistry through practical teaching and research since 1988

The British Veterinary Dental Association (BVDA) was established in 1988 by a group of Veterinary Surgeons who had a particular interest in Veterinary Dentistry. The aims of the association are to educate and train Veterinary and Dental Surgeons in animal dentistry and to promote practice, teaching and research of animal dentistry.

The association has an active membership that undertakes teaching of dentistry to Veterinary Surgeons, students and nurses. This teaching takes the form of courses and study groups. The membership is also involved with promoting veterinary dentistry to the public highlighting the importance of good oral care. We also have presentations at BSAVA Congress and the London Vet Show periodically.

Membership is available to accredited medical professionals.

Each year the BVDA holds a Scientific Meeting where there are papers presented on veterinary dentistry, interactive sessions and state of the art lectures. This also gives the membership a chance to socialise and talk about particular cases.
