The Australian Dental Association Victorian Branch (ADAVB) awards members and other affiliated persons for their service to the profession and the ADAVB.
Nominate a colleague for an ADAVB Award
The ADAVB Council is calling for nominations for the ADAVB Awards.
The ADAVB Awards are designed to recognise significant contributions to furthering the profession in a particular field of dentistry, the ADA, dentistry as a whole or the community as a whole. A significant contribution could be in public relations, research, involvement with the ADAVB, management, community service (including outside dentistry), dental health promotion, education or clinical advancement.
All past and present members of the ADAVB are eligible for nomination for an ADAVB Award.
Awards consist of a certificate and professional recognition through the Victorian Dentist, and will be formally presented to the successful nominee(s) at the next appropriate ADAVB function.
The ADAVB Council believes the vast array of contributions to the community and dentistry made by members warrants recognition, and therefore encourages you to participate by nominating a colleague.
Nominations close on 28 February 2022.
