The British Dental Association (BDA) has honoured the individual contributions to dentistry by 13 people who work in the sector.
In the organisation’s 2012 Honours and Awards that have been announced, three members of staff were given the BDA Fellowship for their work with the body.
The selected trio were general dental practitioner in Lanarkshire Dr Mike Arthur, former chair of the BDA’s General Dental Practice Committee Dr Lester Ellman and Dr Raj Joshi, a consultant in restorative dentistry.
BDA Life Membership was given to three other dental professionals, Dr John Mooney – the current chair and former president of the BDA’s East Lancashire Cheshire Branch, Jackie Morrison – who served both the BDA’s Community Dental Services Group and its West of Scotland Branch – and former consultant in dental public health Dr Richard Ward.
The BDA, which is the professional association and trade union for dentists in the UK, was founded in 1880.
