Aims & Objectives

The British Society of Periodontology and Implant Dentistry was founded in 1949:

“to promote public and professional awareness of periodontology and implant dentistry to achieve our vision of “Periodontal Health For a Better Life”. 

The British Society of Periodontology and Implant Dentistry is a well-established member society dating back to 1949. However, we are very much a contemporary society with a dynamic and forward-thinking group of people at the helm.

We enjoy research, debate and actively getting involved in issues that affect members and our work. We are keen promoters of periodontology and dental implantology and are working hard, through various initiatives, to significantly raise awareness to the public, patients, dental and medical professionals. 

To reflect our commitment to progression and innovation, the BSP awards prizes for research into periodontology - both for undergraduate and postgraduate students - on an annual basis.

The BSP hosts one key Conference every year. These are popular, content-rich, excellent networking events with high profile speakers covering a huge range of topics. We also have an educational webinar programme covering a range of topics for members and non-members. Our Early Careers Group is an energetic part of the BSP, helping to support young periodontists at the start of their specialist career.
