Member Engagement — Special Interest Groups

One of the greatest benefits that businesses across the dental industry enjoy is the ability for their employees to get together with others that face similar challenges in order to share ideas and identify areas for collaboration. That is what the special interest groups convened by the Australian Dental Industry Association (ADIA) are all about.

Each of the special interest groups provides a vehicle for the dissemination of industry news and views in a particular field of interest. Drawing upon ADIA's extensive network of contacts from stakeholders across industry, government, and the dental profession, members of interest groups have access to information often not available to businesses that are not ADIA members. For information on the interest groups relevant to your work in the dental industry, visit the relevant webpage:
