Membership — The next step to grow your business


The dental industry comprises businesses that range in size from small family businesses through to local operations of large, multinational therapeutic product suppliers. They share common aspirations for the growth of their business, the creation of jobs and the financial sustainability of the dental industry. Naturally, they are bound by a universal commitment to the supply of quality dental products and services – this is the membership of the Australian Dental Industry Association (ADIA).

The decision to join ADIA and retain membership is a personal one and driven by many different factors. Some businesses are looking for the latest market research and an understanding of business conditions, others want to play a role in lifting red tape and others just like the sense of community that comes with membership. That's what makes ADIA membership unique, or services that support the industry are developed by industry for the industry and are set out below:
