The Australasian Academy of Dento-Facial Aesthetics (AADFA) was established in 2009 and is dedicated to advancing the art and science of Aesthetic and Facial Rejuvenation Dentistry for the benefit of both dental practitioners and the public.
Representing a Member base of over 5000 Dentists, across our 8 countries of operation, AADFA engages closely with regulators, insurance providers, and product manufacturers, as well as providing clinical, legal and administrative support to ensure our Members maintain the highest standards of ethical conduct, clinical excellence and responsible patient care.
AADFA is the only organisation of its kind in Australasia and has gained an impressive record of achievements in a short space of time, becoming renowned as the most innovative, proactive and exciting dental organization in existence.
From pioneering the concept of "Complete Dento-Facial Rejuvenation"; developing the first ever comprehensive Botox, Dermal Filler and Skincare training programs for Dentists and driving regulatory change in this regard; through to the publication of the first ever Aesthetic Dentistry magazine (Australasian Cosmetic Dentist) and the launch of Australasia's only Aesthetic Dentistry Conference "AesthetiCon", AADFA are true leaders in innovation and progression within the profession of Dentistry.
One of AADFA's fundamental principles is to promote excellence through comprehensive education, offering a series of practical continuing education programs, across multiple countries, which have gained recognition and previous accreditation from various professional institutions, government bodies, product suppliers and insurance companies as being the pre-eminent training for Dentists. AADFA has also been engaged by King's College London, to author and annually teach the Facial Aesthetics module for the Masters of Aesthetic Dentistry program.
AADFA's regulatory work continues on a number of fronts and we have become key stakeholders and opinion leaders in both the dental and cosmetic medicine arenas.
AADFA offers numerous commercial promotions/marketing/advertising and sponsorship opportunities. For more information, email: [email protected]
