What do our DTA Council members do for you?

DTA Council members are a group of qualified and experienced dental technologists who volunteer their time purely for the love of their profession. Our team is committed to  advancing standards within dental technology while ensuring that the importance of British dental technology is recognised throughout the Governments of the four nations,  this year supported by a number of video meetings.

Aiming for the views of the nation's dental technicians to be heard where it matters, we have consistently striven to raise the issue of the plight of dental laboratories and dental  technicians during the strictures of the pandemic by lobbying Ministers, MPs, and regulators, an aim in which we have succeeded.

DTA Council members contribute to the Association's membership in many different ways, whether through writing technical CPD articles for DTA publications The Technologist and Articulate (with the support of our editorial team when required) or peer reviewing articles written by others to ensure they are accurate, relevant and meet the GDC criteria  for verifiable CPD. All our CPD is verifiable.

Our Council members represent the DTA at stakeholder meetings, attend the Council meetings twice a year, and have the benefit of a support network of other experienced  dental technologists. Working together, the team explores and shares information relating to their field of practice and/or interests for the benefit of the DTA membership.

Does this sound like something you would like to be part of? To gain more of an insight into the role of a Council member and a chance to meet the DTA team prior to the  Council Elections (May 2022) observers are welcome to join one of our upcoming meetings via Zoom video conferencing.
