ADA NSW Honours and Awards

ADA NSW recognises the outstanding contributions made by its members to the profession, to oral health and to the community. The Association also recognises the significant contributions made by non-dentists to the Branch and to the profession.

The Council has recognised these contributions by a system of awards to members and non-members of the Association who have given distinguished service to the Association. The Council may seek advice and nominations from ADA NSW members, or any committee established to consider nominations for the awards.
