The dental industry collective offers more continuing professional development than any other sector across Australia's dental community.  If you are a supplier of dental products, services to dentists or involved in the delivery of dental care, the Australian Dental Industry Association (ADIA) is involved with a number of events relevant to you.  These events are designed to keep you up to date with changes to the commercial, technical and regulatory environment in which the dental industry operates.

Attending a conference or seminar is one of the best things you can do for the future of your business, yet many professionals within the dental industry ignore these valuable resources every year. The briefings and events organised by ADIA are designed to give you a plethora of usable content on a variety of relevant subjects.
