THE FUTURE OF PUBLIC ACCESS TO QUALITY AND AFFORDABLE DENTAL CARE
The dental profession has and continues to experience enormous changes not only in Australia but around the world. It is a real pity the ADA (Australian Dental Association) has blinkered themselves by closing their eyes and their minds and failing to recognise and embrace those changes and bring themselves into the modern and exciting world that the dental profession now offers to the public. It is an embarrassment to the entire profession that the ADA chooses to remain stuck in a bygone era that no one cares about anymore and is never to return.
The article below is from the ADA and it shows stark and irrefutable evidence of the ADA’s lack of foresight and understanding of the dental profession itself, of the public perception of the profession (which is, sadly, overwhelming negative), and also of their own need to embrace global societal change for the best interests of society rather than themselves.
Never mind – if the ADA refuses to change with the modern times then the ADA is destined for the scrapheap. It’s their choice….so be it.
Here is the future…let us all embrace it in the best interests of the public and the profession.
