Divisions and Groups - your local ADA

d-sg-crop-u64414.jpg

Your colleagues can provide a crucial source of support and knowledge for your ongoing practice; ADA facilitates this through regular meetings of members and events. Based on your location, ADA members are automatically assigned to groups that meet regularly for lectures and information sessions, often ending with a social dinner. These meetings, addressing various aspects of dentistry, will keep your knowledge current while encouraging networking and friendships.

Divisions are located in rural and regional areas; groups are in metropolitan regions. Dentistry can be quite an isolated profession; participation in your local division or group is a great way to build collegiality.

Many of these meetings will also include a clinical education component with CPD hours attached. This is a valuable benefit since the introduction of mandatory CPD in 2010.

If you are unsure of which division or group you belong to, contact the Branch on 02 8436 9900.

Each of our divisions and groups has a dedicated information page in this section. To visit, click on the links on the side.
