The Australian Dental Industry Awards Winners 2021

Australia's top performers in the dental industry have been recognised at a gala event at the Showtime Events Centre at South Wharf, Melbourne on Friday 7 May, 2021.

An initiative of the Australian Dental Industry Association (ADIA), the peak business organisation representing dental product manufacturers and suppliers, the awards were presented during ADX Melbourne, Australia's premier dental event.

"Australia's dental industry has a strong reputation of supporting oral health professionals in advancing the health of all Australians. ADIA, along with the industry, is building a solid tradition of recognising excellence across the wider dental community.

"Australian businesses that provide world-leading products and services to the dental industry have been recognised for their excellence, innovation and professionalism. The ADIA was overwhelmed by the calibre of entrants across all categories and congratulates the winners on their achievements" said Kym De Britt, ADIA Chief Executive Officer.

An outstanding standard of entries was received which resulted in fierce competition in each of the award categories. The winners are:
