Isopharm are proud to announce that they have become a British Association of Dental Nurses Industry Affiliate!

The Association was formed in October 1940 in Leyland, Lancashire by the dentist PE Grundy, aided by his dental surgery assistants, Amelia White and Madeleine Winter - who became the first General Secretary - and was originally called the ‘British Dental Nurses and Assistants Society’. It developed throughout the war years until in 1946 a full-time General Secretary, Rita Methven, was appointed followed 2 years later by Jean Smith, who remained in post until 1985.

Fast forward to today and the Association has gone through many changes - the formation of the National Examining Board for Dental Nurses (which subsequently became a completely independent organisation), at least two Association name changes and statutory registration with the GDC, to name only a few.

The British Association of Dental Nurses is the only professional organisation specifically for all dental nurses – whether qualified or unqualified, working in General Practice, Hospital, Community, the Armed Forces, Industry, Practice Management or Reception.
