The BDA’s Honours and Awards are now open for nominations for the 2017/18 round. Do you know someone who you feel should be recognised for the amazing work they do for dentistry? Then please nominate them for a BDA Honour or Award.

The Honours and Awards nominations process takes place each year and is designed to recognise outstanding merit and service given to the profession and/or the community. It aims to bring into focus the ‘unsung heroes’ and to highlight and reward those who go that extra mile to support the profession.

At the BDA Honours and Awards Ceremony 2016, a Certificate of Merit was awarded to Mary Farnell for her work as a community dentist and her outstanding contribution to the local community.

We think it’s important to say thank you to those who have shown true dedication: find out more about how to nominate someone for life membership, or one of the other awards available, on our website.

The nomination form includes a full list of the honours and awards categories and the criteria required.

The closing date for applications is 31 May 2017.
