Associate membership is for registered dental practitioners who do not hold an approved postgraduate diploma. You are eligible for reduced membership fees for the first 3 years after graduating from your BDS course.

If you are an early career dentist, Associate membership can be particularly beneficial through opportunities to build your professional network, access to the latest research and developments, and the ability to take charge of your career through discounted courses, events and other CPD.

Whether you are at the start of your career or have been in practice for a number of years, Associate membership can help you to reach your professional goals. 

You can find out more about our membership benefits here. Associate membership starts at just £66 per year, which is £5.50 per month. 

If you hold an approved postgraduate diploma you will become eligible for Full Membership which has additional benefits.
