There are two levels of annual subscription fee for full BVDA members:

Full Membership of the Association shall be restricted to persons who are graduates of an accredited veterinary college, graduates of an accredited dental college, Registered Veterinary Nurses, Qualified (by BEVA/BVDA or WWAED) Equine Dental Technicians, Registered Dental Nurses or Registered Dental Technicians.

Other Categories of membership are:

Associate Membership is open to veterinary, veterinary nurse, and dental students. Associate membership is also open to corporate bodies with an interest in veterinary dentistry, and their employees. This category will also apply to veterinary practices who wish to join as a practice, rather than join an individual member.

Membership subscription fees are due in advance on 1st January each year and should be paid by 31st January. Membership will lapse if fees remain unpaid by 31st March. Lapsed members may rejoin at any time by paying the membership subscription fee.

When membership lapses, a member becomes an BVDA contact and will still receive email notifications unless they have opted out of receiving messages from BVDA.

*Subscriptions run from 1st January to 31st December, i.e. one calendar year. Those who join between October and December will be subscribed for the following year and will start receiving JVD for that year. The first issue is normally published in March and distributed in April.
