New BDTA president announced
Simon Gambold has been elected as the next president of the British Dental Trade Association (BDTA).
The announcement was made following the association’s annual general meeting at its annual conference in Liverpool last week.
Almost 100 people from BDTA-member companies attended the two-day event, which took place at the Radisson SAS hotel, to listen to presentations by well- known names in dentistry.
At the AGM, which opened the Conference, Mr Gambold of Henry Schein was elected as the association’s next president. Edward Attenborough of Attenborough Dental was elected as vice-president. Both positions will take affect from 1 January 2008, after the official handover has taken place at the BDTA midwinter meeting in December.
Dr Brian Schotlander was re-elected to the Council while Kate Scheer, marketing manager at KaVo Dental, Karen Turner, general manager at Dentafix, and Terry Porter, IT manager at The Dental Directory, were all elected as new members of the Council.
