BSP Early Career Group

About the BSP Early Career Group

The BSP Early Career Group (ECG) is a vibrant network of like-minded dentists and dental professionals at the early stages of their careers, all of whom share a passion for and interest in periodontology and implant dentistry.

As a member of the ECG, and with the guidance of the BSP, we hope to support and engage you to meet the challenges you are likely to face in the formative years of your career.

Education plays a key part in the ECG and we support Undergraduate and Postgraduate education and training in perio. We also have strong links with relevant professional groups and affiliated societies and organisations related to periodontology and implant dentistry.

We are keen to support the aims of the British Society of Periodontology and Implant Dentistry, who work tirelessly to promote the art and science of these areas of dentistry. Each year the ECG organise a short-course, details of which will be shown on the Events page of the webiste. We also hold a social meeting at the Annual Conference, which is a great opportunity to network and get to know the Committee and fellow members.

We welcome all BSP members (including students, non-specialists and those not yet on specialist training pathways).
