Dentistry Today


The British Dental Association (BDA) has informed its delegates that the British Dental Conference and Exhibition—scheduled for Thursday, May 25 through Saturday, May 27 at Manchester Central—will go on as planned. Local authorities and the event’s organizers have said that the city of Manchester and the venue will remain open for business despite the bombing following the Ariana Grande concert at the Manchester Arena on Monday night. 

“We are proud to have made Manchester the home for our conference,” said BDA chair Mick Armstrong in a statement on Tuesday. “We are saddened by the events of last night, and our thoughts go out to those affected.”

Extra security measures will be put in place for the conference as a precaution. Also, the BDA encourages delegates to be mindful when going to the venue, as some travel restrictions are in place in the city. More information is available from Transport for Greater Manchester. The Greater Manchester Police (GMP) are urging the public to remain vigilant but to go about their daily lives. Updates are available from the GMP as well.
