British Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry

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.
