The BADT was founded in 1962 with the first annual general meeting taking place on 2nd March 1963 at New Cross School for Dental Auxiliaries.
The minutes from that meeting included discussions on insurance against personal risk what we now call professional indemnity. Note that by the time this was approved the first qualified students had been working for almost two years!
Since that time BADT has been working for Therapists in all areas of the profession, improving working conditions and pay and fighting for recognition within the profession. We are now developing relationships with other Dental Therapy Associations all over the world.
