The Australian Dental Association Victorian Branch (ADAVB) partners with organisations to obtain exclusive benefits and tailored advice and solutions for members.
We’ve done the hard work for you and recommend Guild Insurance for your liability insurance (professional indemnity and public risk). A consortium of ADA branches chose Guild as the underwriter of our indemnity scheme through a tough selection process, and determined that no other insurance offering delivers more value for our members. Guild offers free insurance for 18 months for new graduates and fantastic discounts for all members.
