Membership and Subscription Terms and Conditions

The British Endodontic Society is a membership organisation whose object is to promote and advance endodontology to ensure that the dental and general health of the nation is both maintained and improved, and that life long education of the practitioner is encouraged and facilitated.

The Society wishes to encourage all dentists with an interest in endodontology and who wish to enhance their skills and knowledge to join the Society. However UK dentists must have a GDC number.

Subscriptions

Membership subscriptions run from 1 January to 31 December. Payment must be made in the month of January for renewals. There is no pro-rata rate for those joining during the year but they will receive the back copies of any Journals they have missed.   A membership renewal reminder will be sent out in December of the previous year to those who do not have a direct debit with the Society. Any members whose subscription is two months in arrears will be reminded by the Society and if a membership subscription is not received by end of April, membership unfortunately will be terminated.

A member is able to cancel their membership at any time and a pro-rata refund will be made.

 

Membership

On joining via the website members will receive a password by return followed by a Welcome Letter. The password can be used to access the members pages and the Journal and to edit your personal details. The Society aims to issue a Newsletter to all members each month and will use the email address on an individuals record for this purpose.

All members are welcome to consider standing for election to the BES Council.

The Society may expel any members against whom charges of misconduct or practice prejudicial to the interests of the Society or the dental profession by be deemed proven by the Council.

Please see our Member Benefits page for further details.  We do hope you consider joining us!
