Dr Stephen Shimberg has been confirmed as the final member of the British Dental Association’s (BDA’s) Principal Executive Committee (PEC).
The specialist, who is a general dental practitioner in Worsley Village, Manchester, won a closely-contested by-election in the north west of England.
Over the course of his career, Dr Shimberg has acted as the chair of the West Pennine Local Dental Committee and served as the West Pennine and Manchester representative on the BDA’s General Dental Practice Committee (GDPC).
“As part of his role on GDPC, Dr Shimberg has acted as the cross-rep to the BDA’s Salaried Dentists Committee and Central Committee for Hospital Dental Services,” noted the BDA in a statement welcoming the newest member of the PEC.
Dr Martin Fallowfield is the chair of the committee, while members of the group include Dr Judith Husband, Dr Russ Ladwa, Dr Alison Lockyer, Dr Susie Sanderson and Dr Graham Stokes.
The importance of integrity and professionalism at the BDA was stressed by Dr Fallowfield when he took over the role recently.
