The BARD Mission
The mission of the Academy is to promote the improvement of the nation’s oral health and in particular the quality of occlusion based restorative dentistry performed by promoting educational opportunities and structured learning pathways, and to advance the art and science of Restorative and Aesthetic Dentistry.
We fulfill this mission by creating a network of like-minded dental professionals, promoting and supporting Certification, Diploma and Fellowship pathways, providing accurate information for both patients and dental professionals and creating a structured learning pathway in Restorative and Aesthetic dentistry.
Excellence Through Education. The British Academy of Restorative Dentistry’s fundamental principle is to promote education. The BARD is the only organization of it’s kind to offer a complete training pathway from membership through Certification, Diploma and onto Fellowship. It normally takes two to three years to complete all the requirements, but the rewards are well worth the effort. All members are encouraged to pursue Certification, Diploma and Fellowship.
