Advocacy


As the peak body representing the dental profession in NSW and the ACT, our advocacy for members ensures we stay united as a profession, securing the profile, funding, support and recognition to allow us to continue advancing dentistry and promoting oral health and general health for all Australians. 

ADA NSW aims to advocate for the dental profession by being the leading influencer 
with the community, stakeholders and government. Our goal is to increase awareness of the connection between oral health and general health to improve the health of every Australian.

We do this by:

  • Advocating for the best interests of our membes, the profession and the community 
  • Engaging with government to increase ADA NSW profile as the peak body of dentistry in NSW and the ACT.
  • Developing strong stakeholder relationships to raise awareness of the connection between oral health and general health.
  • Engaging with the medical profession and other health organisations to promote the importance of good oral health as part of good overall health
  • Raising community awareness of good oral health to improve the health of every Australian.
  • Engaging with media to increase the profile of ADA NSW as the peak body and increase awareness of oral health


We partner with:

  • State Government and Regulatory bodies – making submissions
  • Universities & Health organisations – on joint initiatives
  • Federal ADA and other state and territory branches - on national issues

As a membership organisation, we have a strong voice. Our key advocacy areas include improvements in oral health for older Australians, increased awareness of the effects of sugar on health, the promotion of mouthguards and the Child Dental Benefits Schedule and supporting community water fluoridation.
