The Australian Schedule of Dental Services and Glossary (The Schedule) 

Updated October 2021

As a person working in a dental practice or related dental business, you’ll be familiar with ‘the Schedule’. The Australian Schedule of Dental Services and Glossary (Twelfth Edition) is used throughout Australia and is produced by the ADA. If you are an ADA member you will also be familiar with the online item number look up tool the OSG (Online Schedule and Glossary).

The Schedule is used mainly by dentists but also by other dental professionals, government dental programmes, private health insurers and other stakeholders in the Australian dental sector (and also in some international dental sectors).

The Schedule is managed by the ADA Schedule and Third Party Committee which reviews individual item numbers on an ongoing basis and provides a formal update every three to four years. 

A complete review of the Schedule, in readiness for the next edition, has recently been undertaken and is in its final stage.

Please direct all enquiries to [email protected] or call the ADA and watch this page for updates.
