ADA – Australian Dental Association

The ADA is the peak national professional body representing the vast majority of dentists and dental students across both the public and private sectors.

The primary objectives of the ADA are:

  • to support members by enhancing their ability to provide safe, high quality professional oral health care
  • to encourage the improvement of the oral and general health of the public
  • promotion of the ethics, art and science of dentistry

Each year the ADA leads Dental Health Week and a number of other campaigns to broaden awareness of the importance of dental health and to provide health practitioners with resources to educate their patients.
