Service Awards & Honours


Over more than ninety years the success and continued growth of the Australian Dental Industry Association (ADIA) can be attributed to the significant contribution by key leaders who have volunteered so much of their time to advance the interests of the Association and its members. To ensure that the commitment of these individuals is both recognised and not forgotten, ADIA has long-standing honours system that is both internationally renowned and respected.

ADIA Meritorious Service Award —

The ADIA Meritorious Service Award is the second highest honour that the Association can bestow. It recognises, celebrates and thanks the individuals who make a difference by supporting the work of the Association for the benefit of its members. Under guidelines published and periodically revised by the ADIA Board recipients must have been employed by a member for more than a decade and rendered service to the Association for the same period. Above all, they must be widely recognised for their professionalism and high ethical standards. [Read More]

ADIA President's Service Award —

The ADIA President’s Service Award criterion requires recipients to have made a contribution that spans at least three years, including the year in which the award is bestowed. They should have made an exceptional contribution that sets themselves apart from the services rendered each year by the many employees of ADIA member businesses that support the Association’s activities.

ADIA and the broader dental industry have benefited greatly from the time, energy and services freely given by these individuals. The success that ADIA continues to enjoy in policy advocacy, publication of industry statistics and trade shows can be largely attributed to the contribution that these individuals have made.
