Biographical history

In 1909 the first federation of dental societies was formed as the Australian Dental Association. The following year the Association's name changed to the National Dental Association. At its first meeting in May 1911, delegates represented three societies in New South Wales, two in Victoria and one in Queensland, South Australia and Western Australia. During 1911-1928 several societies in both New South Wales and Victoria merged. The Association's original title was adopted in August 1927 and a Tasmanian branch was formed in August 1928. The Association was incorporated in the Australian Capital Territory in December 1971.
