ADIA is the peak business organisation representing manufacturers and suppliers of dental products. Our vision is for an industry that empowers oral health professionals to advance the health and wellbeing of all Australians...................... — ADIA Strategic Plan

Advocacy — Policy advocacy agenda


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.

Advocacy Agenda — Australian Dental Industry Association

Consistent with its role in supporting the development of the Australian dental industry, the membership of the Australian Dental Industry Association (ADIA has identified the following seven priority policy areas:

ADIA Advocacy Agenda Priorities —

Cutting government red tape
Efficient government procurement
Best practice product regulation
Internationally harmonised product regulation
Complementary industry and practitioner regulation
Attract, recruit and retain a skilled workforce
Creating jobs thanks to flexible workplace regulation

ADIA provides leadership, strategy, advocacy and support. Our members set our agenda, fund our activities and directly benefit from the results. As the peak representative body for suppliers of quality dental products our policy 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 policy priorities outlined in the ADIA Advocacy Agenda are directed towards securing these outcomes.

In conjunction with our advocacy partners including the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (AusChamber) in addition to the association of International Dental Manufacturers (IDM), we look forward to supporting the growth and profitability of member businesses.
