By Australian Dental Industry Association, 10 April, 2018

Businesses that have set the standard for providing sector-wide leadership, innovation, marketing campaigns and building links with the dental profession have been recognised in the 2018 Australian Dental Industry Awards.

An initiative of the Australian Dental Industry Association (ADIA), the peak business organisation representing dental product manufacturers and suppliers, the awards were presented at the International Convention Centre Sydney on 24 March 2018.

“Australia’s dental industry has a strong track record of supporting dental professionals advance the oral health of all Australians. These awards recognise the businesses that provide the products and services that excel in this task,” said Troy Williams, ADIA Chief Executive Officer.

A record number of entries were received which resulted in fierce competition in each of the award categories. The winners are:

■. Ultradent Products Australia — ADIA Dental Industry Leadership Award Winner

■. Henry Schein Halas — ADIA Dental Industry Partnership Award Winner

■. Centaur Software — ADIA – MPT Connect Dental Industry Innovation Award Winner

■. My Dental Marketing — ADIA – Bite Magazine Dental Industry Marketing Award Winner

■. Carolyn Dean — ADIA Dental Industry Professional Award Winner

The process of entering the awards kick-started a positive cycle for the businesses that made an entry. The businesses fully appreciated they range of exciting things that they have been doing and writing the awards nomination provided the opportunity to learn and develop the skills to articulate this work to external stakeholders. Winning an award provides an opportunity to showcase a business’ work.

“This recognition provides winners with enhanced credibility in the marketplace and, within the winning businesses, enhanced confidence through an external validation of their approach to supporting dental professionals,” Mr Williams said.

To ensure that the process is both robust and independent, the judging panel is chaired by an ADIA Life Member, Mr Ian Crawford, who is joined by a team of experts with the experience and integrity to ensure the dental industry’s achievements are properly recognised.

The 2018 Australian Dental Industry Awards were made possible thanks to award sponsors MTP Connect and Bite Magazine.
