What is RACDS?

RACDS is a member-based organisation comprising of 3000+ dentists and surgeons from Australasia and beyond. A not-for-profit organisation, the Aim & Purpose of RACDS is to provide a community for exceptional dentists to gain access to ongoing development of their clinical skills, forge a supportive network of peers, mentors and mentees, and to promote the improvement of oral health in the community.

RACDS education programs provide world standard, evidence-based education, training, examination and assessment, and achieving Fellowship or Membership status can distinguish you as an exceptionally skilled practitioner within your community.

In an increasingly saturated market of dental professionals, becoming a Fellow or Member of RACDS can advance your career, promotes patient and peer recognition, as well as providing you with outstanding CPD opportunities.

In addition to personal and professional development, becoming a member of RACDS will provide you with an invaluable, supportive collegiate experience.
