The BSODR is the only organisation representing the full breadth of UK oral and dental research. Through links with other organisations and government we act as an important voice of the UK research community and act as a lobbying group to represent our members.

All members have the opportunity to play a role in the functions of the Society as participants at meetings, as members of research groups and by exercising their right to vote at the Annual Business Meeting.

The Management Committee also includes seven Councillors elected from the membership and all members have the opportunity to stand as an office bearer.
