Join Up



You already know that it is the ONLY professional organisation representing dental nurses, but perhaps you think you aren’t eligible to join – because you aren’t qualified yet, or because you only work part time, or because you are now a tutor or a manager, or work in practice management or reception?

Perhaps you considered joining BADN, but put it off until another day and then forgot about it? Or joined for a year, and then never got round to renewing your membership? Maybe you thought you couldn’t afford it at the time?

You may even have joined another organisation, only to find that dental nurses are not their main priority? Or signed up to a dental nursing magazine, only to discover that the magazine was all you got for your money?

As a dental nurse, time and money are important to you – you never have enough of either! Not only can you keep up to date with developments in dentistry with the digital quarterly “British Dental Nurses’ Journal” (accessed through the members’ only area) – and get up to 8 hours verifiable CPD – but our BADN Benefits scheme of special offers and discounts can save you time and money! To find out more about BADN Benefits, click here.

Full Membership With Insurance Cover*
(available to all Registered Dental Nurses, subject to underwriter acceptance/approval)


Please note that, due to the Government’s increase in Insurance Premium Tax (IPT), the cost of Full Membership with Insurance Cover will increase slightly from 1 June 2017 


From 1 February 2017, BADN’s indemnity scheme will be underwritten by CFC Underwriting, 85 Gracechurch Street, London EC3V 0AA.

As Trafalgar Risk Management Limited (TRM) will continue as brokers for the scheme, the changeover will not cause any disruption to BADN members.  For those members with February renewals who recently renewed cover in January 2017, you will receive an email from TRM together with a new CFC Policy Wording and Schedule, which is to replace the WRB documents previously received.

BADN members are not required to take any action regarding this change and indemnity cover continues as normal.
