Be supported with ADAVB membership

Membership with the Australian Dental Association Victorian Branch (ADAVB) gives you access to professional development, resources and guidance and professional and personal support services to help you be your best and provide the best care for your patients.

We listen to the concerns of our members and we respond. We stand up for the profession and for the oral health of Victorians. We understand your challenges and the issues that affect you. We have faced these challenges together. Be supported, be represented and be your best with the ADAVB.

Free counselling from our LifeWorks program

Members can access confidential counselling on personal or work issues provided by our LifeWorks member assistance program. LifeWorks can help you with relationship and family issues, anxiety and depression, grief and loss, alcohol and drug issues, managing conflict and handling work pressures. Phone-counselling is available 24/7 and you can also access an interactive website with helpful tools by using your member login to access the LifeWorks page.

Free professional advice from our community relations officers

Receive advice from our professional consultants for non-insurance matters, and if you are insured with Guild Insurance, you can receive support and advice from our community relations officers (CRO) for insurance-related matters.

Our CROs are senior, experienced dentists working with the support of dento-legal experts, to provide you with exceptional, trusted support and advice when you need it. Learn more: adavb.org/community-relations-officers.

You can also obtain advice and resources from our Practice Plus consultants for assistance with practice management and infection control issues. Together with our CROs, our Practice Plus consultants are the highest rated service by our members. Learn more: adavb.org/training-events/consulting.
