THIS WEBSITE IS NOT A SUBSTITUTE FOR MEDICAL OR HEALTHCARE ADVICE – INDEPENDENT MEDICAL OR HEALTHCARE ADVICE SHOULD BE SOUGHT PRIOR TO UNDERGOING ANY TREATMENT.

AADFA upholds the very highest international standards of practice and promotes this during training and within its member base.
Members are expected to conduct themselves courteously and professionally, at all times, in dealings with AADFA, fellow professionals and the public. Failure to adhere to standards of professional conduct or behaviour may result in cancellation of membership. Decisions regarding Membership cancellation are at the sole discretion of AADFA and no fee refund would be payable, under any circumstances, should AADFA find it necessary to cancel a membership for a breach of professional standards.
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 its 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.
Furthermore AADFA acknowledges, recognises and expects all Members to abide by the following documents:

In addition, many registered and unregistered marks may appear throughout this site and they are the sole property of AADFA. This site may also contain references to third-party marks, which are the property of their respective owners. If you have any questions regarding a specific mark or any other aspect of AADFA intellectual property, please contact AADFA administration for clarification. Any unauthorized use of any of AADFA’s marks, or of its copyrighted material or trade dress or any other intellectual property, is strictly prohibited, and will be prosecuted to the fullest extent that the law provides.
In the unlikely event that AADFA decides to cancel 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 accommodate participants on an alternative course, at no extra cost, should cancellation or rescheduling occur.
Should AADFA be required to cancel or reschedule a course for reasons beyond it's control (a force majeure event), AADFA will accommodate participants on an alternative course, at no extra cost, but no refund will be payable and AADFA will not be held responsible for hotel deposits; non-refundable airline tickets or other associated fees paid in advance by the participant. Should participants wish to cancel their attendance under such circumstances, no refund will be due.
AADFA will permit a refund of the full course fee (minus an administration fee of $750+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.
All refund requests MUST be made in writing, via email, to: [email protected].
No refund requests will be considered via telephone.
Participants are responsible for determining whether they are able to perform these procedures within their own practices; whether they form a part of their individual scope of practice and fall within the definition of dentistry. AADFA provides no assurances in this regard and 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 and all material contained in AADFA training is AADFA opinion only, it being the responsibility of each individual practitioner to determine the appropriateness of CPD to their clinical practice.
Please carefully read all of AADFA's terms and conditions HERE

Member SUITABILITY & INTERACTION DISCLAIMER
While we do ensure that healthcare Providers listed on the AADFA website are registered in the appropriate categories of service, with the relevant regulatory and licensing bodies, at the time of their initial service registration and account set-up, we do not do this on an ongoing basis. As circumstances can change in this regard, it is your responsibility to ensure the Provider you are working with meets all the legal, ethical, moral and technical specifications required to provide you with the service you seek.
We do not examine, determine or warrant the ongoing certification and/or licensing, competence, solvency or information of any healthcare professional or facility listed on the AADFA website. We rely on the professionals or the facilities listed on the AADFA website to provide accurate information and assume no responsibility for verifying the information provided.
Use of our Service to locate a professional or facility is wholly voluntary and, to the extent permitted by law, in no event will we or any of our agents be liable for damages to any user of our Service for the selection of a healthcare professional or facility or for the services provided by any healthcare professional or facility listed therein, or for any other loss or damage which may occur as a result thereof. We recommend that you check the certification and/or licensing of any healthcare professional or other service provider with the applicable licensing Board or agency.
Many health professions are now governed in Australia by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA), who maintain a current, searchable register of health professionals, which can be viewed here: https://www.ahpra.gov.au/Registration/Registers-of-Practitioners.aspx
You should satisfy yourself as to the competence, solvency, insurances and licensing of anybody you decide to consult with as a result of a connection made through our service. Under no circumstances shall we be liable for any damages whatsoever as a result of losses caused to you by a person or entity that you consult as a consequence of using our service.
AADFA is not an agent for any of the Members listed on this website and has no responsibility for and no liability whatsoever in respect of the conduct of the Member, appointment scheduling or the provision of a health service by a Member.
If your health concern is urgent, including if you have a medical emergency, you should seek urgent medical or hospital attention in person and NOT use this website.
Registered Members must:
pay the stated annual recurring service fees prior to utilising the service;
use the Services in accordance with these Terms;
hold throughout the use of the Service, all licences with all relevant regulatory boards and/or other bodies, councils or authorities necessary, together with relevant insurances, to enable the Member to legally practice and deliver the relevant healthcare services in the jurisdiction in which the Member operates;
operate ethically, morally and to the standard expected of a healthcare professional. Failure to maintain acceptable standards will result in cancellation of service and the decision of AADFA, as to what is considered an acceptable standard or a breach thereof, is final and absolute.
ensure that any Content provided is accurate and up to date and remains accurate and up to date and it will indemnify AADFA for any Claim resulting from outdated or inaccurate Content;
notify AADFA of any change to any of the Member's qualifications, certifications, licences and permits necessary for it to provide the relevant healthcare services or of any breaches of any laws, rules, regulations, industry codes or serious claims for misconduct or professional negligence by the Provider which may impact its ability to provide healthcare services;
when using the Service, actively and consistently ensure its profile is accurate and up to date;
ensure that only the registered Member is permitted to access the Services or materials in restricted areas. Other Providers, even if they work in the same Practice as a registered Member, are not entitled to access the Services or materials until they become a registered Member themselves;

indemnify AADFA against any and all Claims arising from or related to any treatment provided (or which was failed to be provided) by the Member to a Patient, or arising from or related to the Members wrongful use of the Services, or arising from or related to a breach of applicable privacy laws.
Member FEES & CANCELLATION POLICY
Members must pay an annual recurring service fee, plus the prevailing rate of GST, in advance, every year on the date of the Member registration anniversary. Failure to pay the annual service fee will result in immediate suspension of service.
To prevent service interruption, Members agree that the annual recurring service fee will be automatically deducted from their credit card listed in their account and that it is the Providers sole responsibility to ensure credit card details remain current. Members authorise AADFA to automatically deduct the stated service fee, on a recurring annual basis, until such time as the Member cancels their registration to the service in writing.
Cancellation of registration to the service can be made at any time, however there will be no pro-rata refund of fees paid and no refunds of annual recurring service fees are permissible at any time, for any reason.
To avoid the next annual recurring service fee being automatically deducted, written notification of cancellation must be received by AADFA, no later than 30 days prior to the due date for payment of the annual recurring service fee.
Should a late cancellation notification be received (i.e. notification of cancellation with less than 30 days until the due date for payment of the annual recurring service fee), the Member agrees, accepts and authorises that a final payment will be deducted, on the due date set. Under these circumstances, the Member can choose to utilise the service for a further 12 months or not, with all future recurring charges being cancelled and access to the service ending at the next registration anniversary date.
All cancellation notifications MUST be made in writing, via email, to: [email protected].
No cancellation notifications will be considered via telephone.
PUBLICITY AND THIRD PARTY USE AND DISCLOSURE OF MEMBER INFORMATION
Members agree that AADFA may use any Member content for the promotion and marketing purposes of AADFA and grants AADFA an irrevocable licence to use such content in this way, providing that AADFA does not knowingly use any Member Content for promotion or marketing purposes in a way which would detract from the good name and reputation of the Member. The Member must obtain any necessary consents or approvals for such use of the Member. Such licence shall continue despite any termination of this Agreement. Members agree that AADFA may place any Member on any third-party websites or infrastructure or supply to third parties any Member Content in order to offer the Services through a different website or through a partner organisation.
The AADFA website may contain links to web sites operated by third parties. The linked sites are not under our control and we are not responsible for the contents of any linked site or any link contained in a linked site or any changes or updates to such sites.

Participants in AADFA programs are required to pass both theoretical and practical competency assessments in order to gain certification. Registration for a training program does not guarantee certification without first passing these assessments. If sufficient competency is not achieved to pass an assessment and attain certification, AADFA will work with the practitioner to identify short-comings and develop skills to then be able to “RESIT” the competency assessment at no additional fee.
Practitioners will not be able to attain insurance or perform the procedures in practice until they return, “RESIT” and pass the competency assessments.
AADFA’s decision, as to what is constitutes a PASS or RESIT result; what constitutes an acceptable competency standard and whether a practitioner passes or fails a competency assessment, is final and absolute. Failing to PASS an assessment and achieve competency, resulting in a failure to achieve certification is not grounds for a refund of course registration fees or any other compensation.
You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless us and our officers, directors, employees, agents, information providers, partners, advertisers, licensors and suppliers from and against all losses, expenses, damages and costs, including reasonable solicitor's fees, resulting from any violation of these Terms and Conditions or any activity related to your service account (including infringement of third parties' intellectual property rights anywhere in the world or negligent or wrongful conduct) by you or any other person accessing the AADFA website using your service account.

You hereby release and forever waive any and all claims you may have against us or our officers, directors, employees, agents, information providers, partners, advertisers, licensors or suppliers (including but not limited to claims based upon our negligence or the negligence of our officers, directors, employees, agents, information providers, partners, advertisers, licensors or suppliers) for any loss or damage you sustain in connection with your use of the AADFA website.
Our liability for any claim arising from a breach of any term or condition implied by any law which may not be excluded, will be limited to the maximum extent permissible which, in the case of services, will be to the re-supply of the relevant services or the payment of the cost of having the relevant services re-supplied.

Neither we, nor any of our affiliates, directors, officers or employees, nor any third party vendor will be liable or have any responsibility of any kind for any loss or damage that you incur in the event of any failure or interruption of the AADFA website, or resulting from the act or omission of any other party involved in making the AADFA website or the information contained therein available to you, or from any other cause relating to your access to or your inability to access the AADFA website or that information, whether or not the circumstances giving rise to such cause may have been within our control or the control of any vendor providing software or services support to us.

Any formal notices or communications should be sent to our postal address set out at the beginning of these Terms and Conditions. A notice sent to you by email will be deemed to have been received by you 24 hours after it was sent, regardless of whether or not you have actually read the notice.
If any clause or provision of these Terms and Conditions is determined to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable or capable of termination by a party in any jurisdiction in which these Terms and Conditions are to operate, then such clause or provision will be construed, to the extent feasible, to render the clause or provision enforceable. If no feasible interpretation would save such clause or provision, it will be severed from the remainder of these Terms and Conditions without affecting the enforceability of all remaining clauses and provisions.
These Terms and Conditions are governed by the laws of Queensland, Australia.
