Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons (RACDS) is a postgraduate professional education body established in 1965 to provide a broad range of activities to enhance the professional development of both general and specialist dentists through individually actioned studies and examinations leading to Membership or Fellowship of the College. RACDS provides ongoing professional development, mentoring and networking opportunities to its thousand of candidates, Fellows and Members. While it is a global organisation, its headquarters are in the Sydney CBD in Sydney, Australia.[1]

RACDS was established to promote high standards of postgraduate education in the dental profession, and to recognise both general and specialist dentists who have undertaken postgraduate training.

1. General Dental Practice.
