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.
The ADA is governed by Federal Council, which consists of 17 voting councillors, including two from Western Australia, who are appointed through branches and who are responsible for setting the direction, approving policy, compliance and oversight of ADA inc.
As the war progresses in Ukraine, the medical supplies that help civilians and soldiers are becoming harder to source.
ADAWA Members and practices can donate supplies.
We support dental professionals throughout their careers, from the point at which they begin their journey at UWA Dental School, to their eventual and well-deserved retirement - and beyond.Become a memberLearn More about ADAWA
Operating out of West Perth, the ADAWA team is dedicated to the support of our members and the promotion of oral health in the community.
In addition to our employed staff, our team includes a board of council members. These councillors, all dental practitioners, volunteer their time to represent the membership.
We've nurtured valuable relationships with WA’s leading health agencies, in order to support their messaging and better educate WA’s dentists.
We also have partnerships with leading local businesses and affiliations with volunteerism groups to provide benefits and opportunities for our members.
As the recognised voice of oral health, ADAWA has a number of dental-health resources for the general public - although all queries around oral health and dental procedures should, of course, be discussed with your trusted dental professional.
