16 – 17 November

Grand Hotel Blackpool*, Promenade, FY1 2JQ

Throughout the years we’ve met hundreds of dental nurses who attended our annual National Dental Nursing Conference. We shared moments of laughter and valuable knowledge together, this year is no different. We have been working hard to ensure this year’s programme is filled with a variety of interesting subjects, tremendous speakers, and knowledge which you will benefit from in practice. Not only that, you can gain up to 8 hours of verifiable CPD at our conference.

We will also host the members-only Annual General Meeting (AGM)  – you will need your BADN membership card to attend. Afterwards, all attendees are invited to join us at the informal dinner on Friday night at Twelve Restaurant in Thornton-Cleveleys to enjoy an evening filled with laughter – see below.

Whether you are or you’re not a member of the association, a Student Dental Nurse or any other dental professional join us at this year National Dental Nursing Conference! Register now by downloading our registration form below.

Please note, we are still in preparation stages for the conference and some information is subject to change.
