ADIA-OIG Orthodontic Interest Group

a
When the Australian Dental Industry Association (ADIA) was founded in 1925, a founding principle was that the organisation should serve to “provide a medium for the exchange of views relating to dental products” and ninety years later we remain faithful to that task via the ADIA-OIG Orthodontic Interest Group.

Formed by employees of ADIA member businesses, the ADIA-OIG Orthodontic Interest Group is driven by individuals who share an interest in the Australian market for the orthodontic products supplied to dentists. Their collective input and experience allows ADIA to be an effective advocate for the changes required for businesses in the orthodontic sector to grow, create jobs, and operate sustainably. Work of the interest group includes:

Strengthen relationships with key stakeholders —

An exciting component of the ADIA-OIG Orthodontic Interest Group's activities is its twice-yearly meetings which affords you the opportunity to meet key stakeholders such as the Australian Society of Orthodontists (ASO) and leading opinion leaders in the sector.

Influence regulatory standards —

The ADIA-OIG Orthodontic Interest Group works to ensure that the regulatory standards for orthodontic products are based on a risk management approach designed to ensure public health and safety, while at the same time freeing industry from any unnecessary regulatory burden.

Understand business conditions —

Help develop future editions of the Australian Dental Industry Intelligence Report and lean how the data from the Australian Dental Practice Business Conditions Survey can be used to assess levels of confidence across orthodontic practices.

ADIA membership and your involvement with the ADIA-OIG Orthodontic Interest Group offers numerous other benefits and will keep business informed about changes to the commercial, technical, and regulatory environment. Many professionals, however, believe the greatest benefit of being a member of ADIA is the networking and camaraderie that goes on among members.

The ADIA-OIG Orthodontic Interest Group conducts most of its business via email and the group convenes twice each year where it meets with a key external stakeholder from the sector. Participation in the group is open to any ADIA member business that manufactures and/or supplies dental products, so if you are committed to the growth of the orthodontic products sector and want to build a strong network of peers with a similar interest, join the ADIA-OIG Orthodontic Interest Group today.
