The Australian Dental Industry Association (ADIA) is the peak business organisation representing manufacturers and suppliers of products required to achieve optimal oral health outcomes.

Advocacy — Supporting business growth


As the peak representative body for suppliers of products and services to dental professionals, advocacy priorities at the Australian Dental Industry Association (ADIA) is developed by, and on behalf of, members in pursuit of a vibrant dental industry where government supports business growth and workplace innovation whilst removing excessive and sometimes redundant regulation.

The dental industry comprises businesses that range in size from small family entities through to local operations of large, multinational therapeutic product suppliers. They share common aspirations for the growth of their business, the creation of jobs and the financial sustainability of the dental industry. Naturally, they are bound by a universal commitment to the supply of quality dental products and services. To excel, these businesses will benefit from a reduction in red tape and lifting restrictions which limit flexibility and innovation. ADIA’s policy advocacy activities are focussed on two major areas:

Business and employment law regulation

To excel, ADIA member businesses will benefit from a reduction in red tape and lifting restrictions which limit flexibility and innovation. To this end, ADIA’s policy priorities include reform to business taxation, workplace relations framework, workplace health and safety laws in addition to enhanced international trade. [Read More]

Dental product regulation

As ADIA members supply more than 98% of the products used by dentists and allied oral healthcare professionals, product regulation is a major policy priority. ADIA’s advocacy is directed at securing regulatory standards for therapeutic products that are based on a risk management approach designed to ensure public health and safety, while at the same time freeing industry from an unnecessary regulatory burden.

By working with our member businesses ADIA identifies the most appropriate way to provide the industry with the workforce with the skills and expertise required to supply quality dental products. Training initiatives are driven by members ensuring that the programmes offered through ADIA are highly relevant to businesses, both large and small:
