Benefits of BSRD Undergraduate Membership

Here is an insight from our BSRD Undergraduate Representative/Young Dentists group representative, Ridah Hasan, on what she has found to be the benefits of having an undergraduate membership with BSRD:

An undergraduate membership of the BSRD has a huge number of benefits. By joining, you are a part of a society amongst other students, dentists, registrars and consultants who share an interest in Restorative Dentistry.
Membership entitles you to:

  • Online Dental Update Subscription (worth £45!)
  • Dental Update is a peer-reviewed clinical journal which has a large selection of high-quality articles by specialists in their field.      
  • Paying the £30 for a BSRD student membership means you have access to Dental Update online and save £15, whilst also having all of the other membership benefits.
  • During lockdown, many dentists ran online webinars which I used to support my lectures and revise for finals. 

Reduced BSRD Conference Fees 
The coronavirus pandemic has prevented the BSRD from running its usual face-to-face events this year

  • The Spring meeting, which was going to be the first ever joint meeting with the BSSPD/RDUK/SRRDG has been postponed to March 2021. The theme of this meeting is “Better patient care through collaboration”. The exciting program includes lectures given by national and international speakers, on cleft lip and palate, oncology and tooth wear.
  • For the Winter meeting, instead of our usual one-day meeting, the BSRD have collaborated with the Royal Society of Medicine to organise webinars in a Restorative Dentistry series. This involves a series of 4 webinars to be delivered throughout November 2020. Our President, Dr Kathy Warren has invited 3 internationally renowned speakers to deliver 3 lectures, that will be followed by case-based discussions with audience participation (the webinar details are included below). The 4th webinar is devoted to postgraduate and undergraduate presentations and prizes.
  • The Winter meetings will be free of charge to members.

Access to Free Roadshows- Delivered by National and Internationally renowned speakers

  • The coronavirus pandemic has also prevented us from running our Roadshows, which will hopefully resume once restrictions are lifted.
  • The Roadshows take place in Dental teaching hospitals all around the country.
  • They are run by trainees and cover a variety of topics – giving you the chance to talk to other BSRD members, as well as council members who coordinate the event.

Excellent Networking Opportunities within the field of Restorative Dentistry
Since BSRD welcomes and caters for members from a variety of career backgrounds, you’ll have the opportunity to speak to and learn from other members.
The benefits of networking include:

  • Building confidence by meet new people.
  • Gaining career advice and support from those who have experience in the career pathway you may be interested in.
  • Getting your questions answered! Dentistry is a challenging subject to study so being a part of a society that gives you access to academic resources including the BSRD guidelines is a real asset.

Mentoring and career support

  • As an undergraduate student you may not know yet what you would like to do in the future but knowing that you are a part of a society who are there to offer advice and guidance is reassuring.
  • If you do want to find out more information about a certain career option then there are many members who would be willing to offer you their expertise.

Awards and Prizes

  • The BSRD offers a number of awards and prizes every year that aim to encourage quality research, clinical work and are an opportunity for you to showcase your best work to others in the society.
  • The Undergraduate Clinical Case Oral Presentation is aimed at undergraduate students and is a great way to develop your research and presentation skills, as well as boosting your CV.
