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 — Complementary industry and practitioner regulation


The symbiotic relationship that exists between the dental industry, dentists and allied oral healthcare professionals is best supported by a regulatory framework that supports professionals and their suppliers. Where standards exists that govern the work of dentists and allied oral healthcare professionals, these should reflect the statutory limitations associated with the supply and use of dental product.

Strategic priority —

Government-mandated practice guidelines for healthcare professionals that are consistent with, and complement, the regulatory standards for the supply of dental products.

Actions required by government —

Policies, codes and guidelines issued by the Dental Board of Australia (DBA) should not contradict
aaregulatory standards for therapeutic products.
Implementation of uniform state / territory licensing for the use and ownership of imaging equipment
aausing ionising radiation.

Advocacy partner —

ADIA’s partner in delivering outcomes across this policy area is the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (AusChamber).

Industry benefits —

The direct outcome for ADIA member businesses are increased profitability, business growth and job creation as a result of being able to make available to professionals a greater range of dental products as a result of mutually supportive regulatory standards for suppliers and professionals.

This priority reflects ADIA's commitment to ensure a strong. dynamic and globally competitive Australian economy by advancing the cause of economic reform. The reforms set out above are part of a considered and balanced reform agenda that will achieve a number of outcomes including lowering and simplifying taxes, streamlining the federation, reducing the size of government, eliminating red-tape, improving efficiency and enhancing our national productivity.

Member Engagement —
