History

The BDA and the west of Scotland branch has a long and illustrious history. The BDA was formed in 1880 and since then has been a voice for dentists across the UK.

Locally we hold a variety of fascinating records and over the next few months and years plan to share these online. These records are held at the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow. Please contact the Royal College if you would like to access them.

In the meantime, find out about more the BDA’s history and the BDA museum.
