This year’s Malcolm Pendlebury Memorial Lecture will be delivered online, and accessible to the whole of the dental profession for the first time.

Malcolm Pendlebury was a Nottingham-based general dental practitioner, and a founder member of the Faculty of General Dental Practice UK (FGDP), serving as its third dean between 1997 and 2000, and its educational adviser at the time of his death in 2004. He is remembered for his lifelong commitment to raising standards in dental practice and making a considerable contribution to vocational training.

His research work included identifying an enzyme that causes gum disease in smokers, and his wide-ranging interests and experience also included working on behalf of the World Health Organisation in the quality assurance of examination systems of medical schools in the former Yugoslavia. As secretary of the College of General Dental Practitioners (UK), he also believed that the general dental profession should establish an independent academic home, an ambition now being realised by the College of General Dentistry.
