The College of General Dentistry has congratulated the British Dental Industry Association (BDIA) on its 100th anniversary.

Nairn Wilson CBE FCGDent, President Emeritus of the College, said:

“Congratulations to the BDIA on 100 years of service and support to the dental profession and the patients it serves. Its work over the last century has unswervingly underpinned the provision of oral healthcare services, meeting the ever-changing needs of the ever-increasing diversity of oral healthcare professionals.

“The BDIA has also helped drive innovation and developments in dentistry with the timely introduction of new materials, instruments and devices, typically from international manufacturers and markets, while protecting the profession from substandard and counterfeit products.

“The College of General Dentistry is grateful for its sterling service and wishes it continued success, and we look forward to working together to further improve standards in oral healthcare during its second hundred years and beyond.”
