Kinloch returns to SDPC in BDA election results
Robert Kinloch, former chair of the Scottish Dental Practice Committee (SDPC) and outgoing deputy chair of the BDA’s Principal Executive Committee (PEC) has been re-elected to the Scottish committee following the recent elections.
Kinloch, who will continue to serve as a member of the PEC, rejoins the SDPC representing Greater Glasgow and Clyde. Cumbernauld dentist Gordon Stewart, representing Lanarkshire, Ayrshire and Arran, and Dumfries and Galloway, is the only other new face while a further election will be required to fill the vacant seat in Grampian, Highland, Western Isles, Orkney and Shetland.
The Scottish members on the UK General Dental Practice Committee remain the same apart from the Lanarkshire, Ayrshire and Arran, and Dumfries and Galloway health boards’ seat which is still vacant after Graham McKirdy deciding against standing for another triennium.
However, there are four new faces on the Scottish Salaried Dentists Committee (SSDC) in the form of Claire Livingston (Borders), Philip McCallum (Highland), Andrea Roger (Highland) and Jennifer Szuster (Forth Valley).
