Annual Conference

The next Annual BAOS Conference is due to take place on Thursday 3 and Friday 4 November 2022 at the Assembly Rooms, George Street, Edinburgh.

This is held in autumn each year in a city chosen by the committee on a rotational basis to allow all to participate and join in this informative, educational and enjoyable conference.

The conference is inclusive and welcomes all grades of colleagues from primary and secondary care as well as academia. Trainees from Dental Foundation to Registrar grades attend and are encouraged to present audits and papers to the learned audience with prizes in each grade awarded to the best in category.

The conference is also an opportunity to inform attendees of developments in the specialty both politically and clinically. National and international specialists in their field are invited to deliver talks.

The Annual General Meeting is also held at the conference and is a forum for debate and discussion on where the specialty is and what the future plans are for progression and development.

There are also specialist sub-committee meetings at lunchtimes to allow likeminded people to meet and exchange views and news pertinent to their interests.

The social events at the conference are always extremely enjoyable and allows for catching up with old friends and making new ones with great opportunities for meeting and networking.


CPD Events

BAOS runs an active programme of CPD events throughout the year as well as the annual conference.

The programme of in-person events has been suspended due to current restrictions. We are running a programme of digital CPD events in 2022 as shown above.

To facilitate this there is one Regional Representative Coordinator who sits on BAOS Council. Support is provided to all the Regional Representatives (RR) who arrange study days and liaise with local membership to ensure that the study days meet local needs.

RR represent local membership and act as a bridge between the BAOS Council and the membership. They are an important part of the network for the advancement of the specialty of oral surgery in both primary and secondary care.

Currently there are 11 regions covering all areas of the country with RRs in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. In England the regions are North East, North West, East Midlands, West Midlands, South West, South East, Greater London and Yorkshire and the Humber. This allows easy accessibility to all and provides a choice of study days that can fulfil all CPD requirements easily.

Each region aims to have 1 study day per year, or its equivalent over more frequent shorter meetings, for example those held in the evening. These are open to all members: Secondary care or primary care specialists, GDPs, FDs, dental nurses, dental students. All organised study days have to comply with the quality assurance guidance as laid out by the GDC providing high quality educational events at very attractive rates.
