Dr Donald Sloss has been named as the new president of the British Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (BACD).

Donald, a fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of England, has also passed membership exams of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh and is one of the few dentists in the country to have passed the strenuous accreditation process of the BACD.

Educating members

Having been involved with the BACD since its inception, Donald comments on what we can expect from him as president, and from the Academy going forward:

‘The BACD will continue to focus on providing first-class education for all members of the dental team.

‘We’re looking to make sure that cosmetic dentistry is applied to mainstream dentistry – all dentistry should be aesthetic, so if you’re restoring teeth, why not do it in a beautiful way?

‘The overall BACD philosophy will remain key in the coming years – it’s all about our patients.

‘It’s about how we can best deliver a great service for them, give them back their confidence and maintain their teeth for life.

‘As an Academy, our goal is to obtain the resources we need to provide even more fantastic learning opportunities for our members, ultimately promoting skills and a knowledge base for the good of our patients.’

The BACD annual conference, tag lined ‘FAB: Function, Aesthetics, Biology’, takes place from 9 to 11 November in London.
