Professional Standards

AADFA upholds the very highest international standards of practice and promotes this during training and within it's member base.

As the cosmetic industry in Australasia has traditionally been very poorly regulated, with little accountability, AADFA has come to set the gold standard in training and policy over the years, drawing its best practices and standards from the highest and most respected international bodies.

In February 2013, the 'Cosmetic Surgical Practice Working Party', conducted the world's largest review of cosmetic practices and developed the world's leading document reflecting best practice in this field entitled "Professional Standards for Cosmetic Practice" - AADFA fully supports and has adopted the conclusions in this document as it's Code of Practice.

Led by the Royal College of Surgeons of England and including the Faculties of Dental Surgery and General Dental Practice, this document spells out the accepted standards of patient care, professional conduct and training in the cosmetic industry.

Training Cancellation 

AADFA Course Cancellation

In the unlikely event that AADFA needs to cancel or reschedule a course, all fees are fully refundable. AADFA reserves the right to cancel or reschedule a course for any reason, at any time, and cannot be held responsible for hotel deposits; non-refundable airline tickets or other associated fees paid in advance by the participant. Venue locations may change depending on circumstances beyond our control. AADFA will do all it can to accomodate participants on an alternative course, at no extra cost, should cancellation or rescheduling occur.

AADFA will permit a refund of the full course fee (minus an administration fee of $500+GST) should the participant withdraw from the course no later than 5.00 PM, same date, one month before the course. No refunds will be given for cancellations after this time or if the participant fails to attend the course on the day. At our discretion, participants may be able to change to another date and location but there will be no refund available.

Participants are responsible for determining whether they are able to perform these procedures within their own practices. AADFA cannot be held responsible for current or future decisions or policy by the Dental Board of Australia or other regulatory/legislative bodies in relation to the provision of facial injectables by Dentists that may limit their use in practice. Participants are responsible for ensuring they have an adequate level of indemnity cover and that this cover includes the use of facial injectable treatments. AADFA will not be held responsible if a participant is refused coverage for facial injectables by an insurer for any reason or is unable to obtain materials for use in practice.

Registered health practitioners are responsible for their own patients and treatment choices. AADFA does not encourage Dentists to use facial injectables beyond their training and experience. It is the responsibility of each individual practitioner to ensure patients under their care are treated appropriately and that a therapeutic need exists for the use of Schedule 4 medications.
