Taking a career break 

We appreciate you sometimes need time out from your career so, whatever the reason, we have the tools you need to stay connected to your profession while you're away. 

What you need to know:

Amend your membership status with your ADA Branch to stay connected during your time out from the profession.

Even while you're on a break you can still access the full range of services such as Lifestyle Benefits which offer great deals for ADA members.

Peer is your safe place to connect, discuss and seek advice from fellow ADA members.

Keep your professional knowledge current with the ADA’s CPD Portal which offers hundreds of hours of video and audio modules.

Catch up on all the latest news and clinical and practice insights in the member-only monthly News Bulletin and also the official journal of the ADA, the Australian Dental Journal. 

When you're ready to return to active practice, the HR Service offers a range of advice and information to smooth your transition back into the workforce.


Locate policies, guidelines and publications quickly and easily.
