About the Society

The British Society of Prosthodontics (BSSPD) is the foremost Specialist Prosthodontic Society in the UK and was founded in 1953. The worldwide membership is around 500, and the society is always actively pursuing new members who have an interest in fixed, removable, implant or maxillofacial prosthodontics.


Membership is open to dentists, doctors, scientists and other dental care professionals who profess an interest in prosthodontics. The membership benefits include reduced rates for conference attendance, free subscription to the European Journal of Prosthodontics and Restorative Dentistry and opportunities to present and apply for numerous research prizes and bursaries that this friendly society affords. The large number of members in practice has ensured that the Society has remained in touch with general practice as well as academic dentistry. Honorary membership is offered to distinguished individuals by unanimous election of the Society.

Annual Conference

Our annual conference is usually held in March each year and aims to address topical issues of interest to the dental profession, both dentists and dental care professionals. The major part of the Conference consists of a scientific programme during which papers and posters are presented. Active discussion of the presentations has always been a feature of this Conference.
