Tips for choosing a private dental clinic
Here are some helpful tips for choosing a dentist at a private dental practice.
Is the dentist a member of the Australian Dental Association?
Dentists that are members of the Australian Dental Association have access to the latest guidelines, news, and educational resources. This helps them to stay up to date with changes in the dental profession and the latest research.
If you need a dentist, find an ADA member dentist near you using our Find-a-dentist search tool.
Is the dental practice accredited to the National Safety and Quality Health Service Standards?
This means that the dental practice is committed to improving safety and quality for their patients. An independent agency performs an assessment to check that strict internationally recognised health standards are met.
