The Australian Dental Association, established on 19 June 1928, is an Australian professional organisation of dentists which has as its aim the encouragement of the dental health of the public and the promotion of the art and science of dentistry. There are Branches of the Association in all States and a Provisional Branch in the Northern Territory; its national secretariat is located in Sydney. Membership is voluntary and over 90% of dentists in Australia are members. This membership implies an obligation for members to practise their profession in accordance with the high standards laid down by the Association.

The ADA is active in raising public awareness over a number of dental-related issues, such as the promoting of water fluoridation; the wearing of mouthguards during sporting activities; and the warning against tongue piercing as a dental health hazard.
