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. 

New ADC examination centre

The Australian Dental Council is pleased to announce that from Wednesday 18 April 2018 the organisation will be located at its new administration and examination centre at Level 6, 469 La Trobe Street, Melbourne.

This is an exciting milestone for the organisation as we work to deliver a new practical examination experience for candidates completing the ADC’s dental practitioner assessment process.

We strongly encourage anyone planning to contact the ADC via mail or courier to make a note of the organisation’s new address. This includes candidates needing to submit relevant documentation to the organisation as part of their assessment process.
