Welcome to the Australian Dental Council

Role of the Australian Dental Council

Formed in 1993, the Australian Dental Council (ADC) is an independent organisation appointed by the Dental Board of Australia (DBA) to conduct assessment and accreditation functions for the dental professions under the National Registration and Accreditation Scheme (NRAS).

The ADC is a not-for-profit company limited by guarantee under the Australian Securities and Investments Commission. It holds charity status under the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission and is funded by a grant from the DBA and fee for service activities. 

2018 holiday season

The Australian Dental Council will be closed from 1pm AEDT Friday 21 December 2018 for the festive season. The office will reopen on Wednesday 2 January 2019 at 9am AEDT. 

Should you have any questions during this time, please contact the ADC via the Contact Us page. Please note, due to the office closure, response times may take longer than usual. 

On behalf of management and staff at the ADC, we would like to wish you and your family a happy festive season and best wishes for 2019.
