BOQ Specialist has announced the return of its popular ADAQ and BOQ Specialist Practice Bursary for Dental Excellence program. In partnership with the Australian Dental Association Queensland, BOQ Specialist will award two ADAQ members with professional development grants valued at a total of $11,000.
Now in its fifth consecutive year, the program acknowledges Queensland dental practices that are committed to quality learning, and funds the continued professional development of practitioners and their teams.
“BOQ Specialist has provided distinctive banking solutions to dentists for more 30 years, which gives us a unique understanding about the importance of continued development for practising professionals,” BOQ Specialist interim CEO Jeff Miller said.
“We are thrilled to continue our partnership with ADAQ and support dental practitioners in delivering the highest level of care and service to their patients.”
This year, one bursary will be offered to an emerging practitioner (with less than five years of professional work experience), and the other will be offered to an experienced practitioner (with over five years of professional work experience) on behalf of their dental practice.
“We’re delighted to continue our partnership with BOQ Specialist to deliver this strategic initiative that strongly aligns with ADAQ’s mission of supporting the dental profession and advancing the oral health of all Queenslanders,” ADAQ president Associate Professor Alex Forrest said.
The bursaries will be awarded at the ADAQ Annual Clinic Day on Friday 26 November 2021 with applications accepted until 11.59pm on Sunday, 7 November 2021. The application form is available via the ADAQ website at www.adaq.com.au/bursary.
