Dental Link welcomes everyone to partake in her activities.

Dental Link roots start in the mid-1970s, when a small group of mainly dental students who formed a study and social club at the Royal London Dental Hospital . They were bound by their common origins and their aspirations to make a success of their careers. A tutor, Dr Louis Joseph, suggested that this genial camaraderie be capitalised upon and continue to support other dentists with similar aspirations.

It with this background the Dental Link (then known as Anglo Asian Odontogical Group) was formally incepted in 1981. The organisation soon grew into one of the largest groups in the UK. It also engaged with other like-minded dental groups to work with.
