​Spare a thought for those within the profession who are struggling with financial difficulties this Christmas.

Circumstances can change suddenly for many reasons, leaving families feeling the pinch and less than cheery as the festivities get underway.

BDA Benevolent Fund offers additional financial support at this time of year to ensure that families don’t miss out.

If you, or a dentist you know, are facing financial difficulties, please contact BDA Benevolent Fund, in confidence, on 020 7486 4994, or visit www.bdabenevolentfund.org.uk for more information.

The charity relies on donations. To donate, please visit www.justgiving.com/bdabenevolentfund or send a cheque, payable to ‘BDA Benevolent Fund’, at BDA Benevolent Fund, 64 Wimpole Street London W1G 8YS. Every £1 donated goes directly to a dentist and their family in crisis so your help really does support someone in need.”

The BDA Benevolent Fund wishes you a fantastic festive season, and thanks everyone who has supported them throughout the year.
