The Australian Dental Industry Association - An Introduction
The Australian Dental Industry Association (ADIA) brings together the suppliers of quality products and services used in dentistry. As the peak representative body for the dental industry, we bring members together to allow them understand and positively influence the commercial, technical and regulatory environment.
Naturally, the businesses that are ADIA members have a commitment to upholding professional standards and the provision of premium dental exhibitions that promote the reputation of the industry.
ADIA's success in supporting member businesses is attributable to the cooperative relationships that have been developed with dental professionals, government and allied health industry stakeholders.
