Supporting West Australian dentists as they look after the oral health of the community.

Over the course of a century, we’ve established ourselves as the beating heart of dentistry in WA. What began as a somewhat staid, male-dominated association has quietly evolved into an inclusive “family” – one that supports WA’s dentists professionally, emotionally and socially, with the result that they’re better able to look after the oral health of every member of society.
