The British Association for the Study of Community Dentistry (BASCD) has organised a summer scientific meeting in Glasgow on June 9-10, 2022. This will be their first in-person meeting since 2019. In November 2021, Glasgow became the UK’s first city to achieve EarthCheck Benchmarked Community status.

The conference theme is ‘Build back better: inclusion, integration and innovation’. To help set the scene, there is a keynote address from Professor Maggie Rae, president of the Faculty of Public Health (FPH).

BASCD is now in partnership with FPH and acts as the special interest group for oral health. This year is the 50th anniversary of FPH, and BASCD has arranged a special celebration during the presidential dinner at the Merchants House. The social programme includes a bagpiper, highland dancing, Chinese dancing, and a ceilidh.

During the conference, there will be two poster prize competitions (£200 each). The closing date for abstracts submission is 9:00 am on Wednesday April 20, 2022.

CPD allowance has been approved by NHS Education for Scotland. General dental practitioners in Scotland, whose NHS earnings bear 90 per cent or more to the total earnings, are able to claim the following CPD allowance:

Thursday June 9, 2022 – 1 session (£231.10)

Friday June 10, 2022 – 1.5 session (£346.65)

Details of the conference programme, abstracts submission and registration are available at: The early bird rate will close on Thursday March 31, 2022.
