Australian Dental Association Foundation



The Australian Dental Association Foundation is a charitable organisation that aims to improve the oral health of Australians who are disadvantaged by social, financial or geographic circumstances. The Foundation runs its own projects, as well as granting funds to organisations for projects that address equity in dental care in Australia. Some of the work supported by the Foundation targets Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander dental health, including Indigenous dental workforce development. The Foundation is supported by donations of funds, equipment and expertise from dentists and the dental industry, and was formed in 2008 by the Australian Dental Association.

In 2016, the Foundation (ADAF) offered study grants to students of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander background who are undertaking a course of study that will lead to registration as a dental hygienist. In previous years, the Foundation provided funding to support the work of the Kimberley Dental Team and the Tooth Mob Dental Volunteer Program.
