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.
RACDS is closely monitoring the advice relating to Coronavirus (COVID-19) provided by the Australian Government Department of Health and WHO, and adjusting our program of activities accordingly. Our first priority is the health and welfare of our Fellows, members, activity participants and staff.
The College is developing, where appropriate, alternate delivery methods for many of our upcoming events. As a result, there are a number of schedule changes to our calendar of events, which is being updated frequently. Should we need to cancel an activity, participants will receive a full refund of the enrolment fee.
We apologies for any inconvenience and appreciate your understanding at this time. Please continue to check our College Calendar for the most up to date information.
