The British Society of Dental Surgeons was formed in 1923. The first meeting of the Committee to carry through the foundation of the Society was held in 1922. The proposed object of the society was the advancement of dentistry, the protection of interests of qualified Dental Surgeons, and the protection of public dental health. The first meeting of the Council of the British Society of Dental Surgeons was held in 1923, and Sir Frank Colyer, the new President of the Society, chaired the meeting. Following a referendum where British Dental Association members voted not to allow unqualified men from the Dentists Register 1921 to be admitted to the Association, the Society disbanded in 1928 with the balance of their funds handed to the Benevolent Fund of the British Dental Association.
