Membership — What the Members Say ...

Membership of the Australian Dental Industry Association (ADIA) provides you with the opportunity to be part of something special, an organisation that's dedicated to helping your business grow, create jobs, and operate sustainably.

As with many membership-based organisations, significant benefits can be obtained when you get involved. This is important to ADIA given that the direction of training programs, exhibitions, market research and policy advocacy are all set by members. This is valued by all, as is clear from the feedback that ADIA member businesses offer:

As a small business operating in South Australia our membership of ADIA is a real game changer. Not only do we get an effective voice in Canberra but the regional trade shows help our business reach so many new clients.
Rick Brine – Managing Director, City Dental Supplies

From the perspective of my business, a real benefit of ADIA membership is the opportunity provided to build a professional network from businesses big and small. It’s great that we can set aside commercial interest and work towards our industry’s shared goals.
Ken McInnes – Managing Director Pacific, Ivoclar Vivadent

Australian small businesses looking to export are facing immense challenges and ADIA has been there to support us along the way. From understanding the regulatory framework to overseas exhibition opportunities, ADIA membership is a central tool in our business.
Andrew Stray – Managing Director, Dentalife Australia

What’s great about my consultancy’s membership of ADIA is not only has it allowed us to attract new clients across the dental industry, it has provided me the chance to make a contribution to advocacy efforts that have contributed to cut government red tape,and progress regulatory reform.
Clare Martin – Principal, Clare Martin & Associates

When it comes to deriving the maximum benefit from the investment that a business makes in ADIA membership, the need and expectations of every member are different. Whether you are simply seeking information on current business conditions, training for your staff or the opportunity to get involved in the policy debate to cut government red-tape, be sure to let the ADIA team know what's important to you.
