About BAOS

The British Association of Oral Surgeons represent all practitioners with a special interest in Oral Surgery, from the high street practitioner through hospital specialists to the Academic Oral Surgeons.

The Association was launched at the National Study day for Specialists in Surgical Dentistry in September 2001 to represent the growing number of specialists in this field of dentistry. The Associations aims are to promote the development of specialist Oral Surgery practice and address issues relating to NHS and private practise, training, clinical governance and post-specialist training.

The British Association of Oral Surgeons originated from the British Association of Surgical Dentistry in 2003 where it was announced that the BASD was to change its name to the British Association of Oral Surgeons (BAOS). It was felt that this name is more recognisable to the public and our colleagues in Europe and further afield and better placed to reflect the speciality of Oral Surgery to all those involved.
