The Dental Board of Australia (the Board), one of 15 health profession boards that work together with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency to deliver the National Registration and Accreditation Scheme, is asking for people who are passionate about healthcare and protecting the public to indicate their interest in appointment to the Board. 

These positions, which are soon to be vacant due to the scheduled expiry of current board member appointments, are open to registered dental practitioners and community members—although the role of Board chair can only be filled by a registered dental practitioner. 

The Board is also seeking increased input from First Nations People and is encouraging Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander persons to apply. 

Each appointment is for a period of three years. 

More information about eligibility requirements specific to these vacancies, the roles of National Board chairs and members, and the application process can be found on the Ahpra website and any enquiries can be directed to 

Applications close Sunday 7 March 2021.
