Role of the Australian Dental Council
The Australian Dental Council (ADC) is an independent accreditation authority assigned the accreditation functions for the dental professions by the Dental Board of Australia (DBA) within the National Registration and Accreditation Scheme (NRAS).
A not-for-profit company, limited by guarantee under the Corporations Act 2001, the ADC works to protect the health and safety of the public by ensuring dental practitioners meet the high standards required of the dental professions in Australia. This is achieved through the accreditation of education and training programs and the assessment of overseas trained dental practitioners.
The Australian Dental Council has two pages dedicated to our response to COVID-19 in relation to dental practitioner assessments and program accreditation.
More information regarding COVID-19 and dental practitioner assessments is available here.
