TGA Fees and Charges Updated for 2023-2024

Earlier this year, ADIA shared the proposed changes to TGA fees and charges for the new financial year via this update. These changes were open to consultation, which ADIA participated in. Late last month, the 2023-2024 fees and charges were released.

I am pleased to report that many of the proposed increases were reduced or removed following consultation, with most increases in line with inflation.

As a reminder, the proposed changes are summarised below. You can view the entire consultation paper here.

TGA Point-of-Care Survey for the Dental Sector

Posted by ADIA on 18 April 2023
TGA Point-of-Care Survey for the Dental Sector

Good afternoon, 

The TGA has developed a dental and oral health survey, for professionals, practitioners and technicians involved in the dental sector.

In order to provide the TGA with as much feedback as possible ADIA is inviting all members to complete the survey, as well as share it with relevant clients and contacts.

What does the survey cover? 

The survey aims to ensure regulation for medical devices manufactured at the point-of-care remains fit-for-purpose.

It takes approximately 10-15 minutes to complete and aims to capture information about point-of-care manufacturing activities including what kind of devices are being manufactured, who is manufacturing the devices and what measures are currently in place to ensure devices are safe and fit for their intended purpose.

ADIA encourages you to complete the survey and pass it on to your relevant clients before it closes on Sunday 7 May 2023.

2023 Australian Dental Industry Awards

Posted on 1 April 2023
2023 Australian Dental Industry Awards

Members of the Australian Dental Industry Association (ADIA) and the wider oral health industry gathered last night to celebrate the industry’s best.

The Australian Dental Industry Awards were presented at a gala dinner event at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre. Guests were regaled by Anna Meares OAM - the most accomplished Australian cyclist of all time, the MC and keynote speaker for the evening.

ADIA CEO Kym De Britt emphasised the importance of celebrating distinction in the industry. “The awards serve as an opportunity for the Association to recognise excellence in the industry, and to pay tribute to the member individuals and organisations pioneering to improve the dental health and wellbeing of all Australians,” he said.

The inaugural Women in Dentistry Scholarship was presented to Dina Tinkler, Chief Operating Officer at Credabl. Dina, a marketing and business development professional with more than eighteen years’ experience, will receive a one-year membership to the Australian Institute of Company Directors and full enrolment to the AICD Company Directors Course. Dina thanked ADIA and Women in Dentistry for the opportunity, “I’m super excited to be able to embark on further education, a new chapter of my professional capabilities, and to be able to mentor, support and influence female colleagues.”

The awards process, convened by ADIA and judged by an independent panel of industry experts, allows for businesses to reflect on the past year's performance.

For excellence in revolutionising the dental industry, the Thryv Innovation Award was presented to Cinch Video Solutions in the face of strong competition. Cinch Video Solutions has adapted its existing technology to enable dental professionals to easily create educational videos from their smartphones, using a library of pre-prepared material. Ian Elliot from Cinch Video Solutions said “the dentistry industry has always been at the forefront of innovation because it’s such a personal procedure and the more comfortable you make the patient, the better the patient experience is going to be.” He said receiving the award is “validation that we’re on the right track”.

Outstanding Achiever Award winner, Dr Suelen Cella of SDI Limited, said she was immensely proud and grateful, “This award shows what you can achieve with teamwork, passion and accountability.” Dr Cella dedicated the win to her team at SDI, with a triumphant “this is for us!”

The ADIA President and Board also acknowledged individual members for their contributions to the Association, including Simon Taggart whose longstanding support was recognised with Life Membership, the highest honour that can be bestowed on a member. In accepting Life Membership, Simon said “it’s been a team effort over the last ten years, and what we’re seeing today is a direct result of everyone’s involvement. It’s been fantastic.”
