The British Dental Association has announced Dr Robert Donald is to be the new chair of the Scottish Dental Practice Committee (SDPC).
He follows in the footsteps of Dr Robert Kinloch, who has been elected to the BDA’s new Principal Executive Committee (PEC) and can therefore no longer continue in the role.
Dr Donald, who is a dentist in the Highlands, stated it is a “huge honour” to have been selected for the position, adding: “This is a testing time for dentistry in Scotland, with practices under significant financial and regulatory pressures.”
However, he stressed the fact there have been developments in dentistry north of the border in the last few years as a result of the commitment shown to the sector by successive governments in Holyrood.
Last month, the BDA announced Dr Martin Fallowfield, who is a general dental practitioner in Peterborough, has been elected to chair the new PEC.
