For Professionals — Professional Associations and Societies

If you are a dentist or allied oral healthcare professional, the Australian Dental Industry Association (ADIA) is highly supportive of your efforts to join the relevant professional association to your skills and expertise. It is an important step in creating professional relationships which can be used to support and help one another in reaching your professional goals.

Associations for dental professionals sponsor numerous events throughout the year that allow you to connect with your peers. You can share ideas, ask for advice, volunteer to be a speaker, or become a member of a committee. Since most associations have national or local conferences, you can participate and have the opportunity to learn about breaking news in your career, learn best practices or new ideas, hear about key achievers in your field, and also meet and brainstorm with others who are also looking to share and learn new information.
