The Adelaide University Dental Students' Society is the sole student representative body for Dental and Oral Health students in South Australia. With 100 years of history, we are among the oldest dental student societies in Australia.
Our commitment is to enrich the student experience whilst studying at the University of Adelaide, as well as the continual promotion of a high standard of academic performance from our students.
The Adelaide University Dental Students’ Society is the organisation that represents Dental and Oral Health Therapy students. The Society was founded in 1919 and over the years we have expanded in order to accommodate the growing number of students and their needs. The AUDSS supports students academically, socially and emotionally and we are one of the oldest and most renowned student societies in Australia.
We believe in work-life balance which is why we run both academic events to augment the program content and increase your knowledge as well as social events that provide networking opportunities in addition to the chance to de-stress. Keep up to date by checking out the calendar and joining our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/groups/AUDSS.
The AUDSS has strong ties with the Adelaide Dental School, SA Dental Service, Australia Dental Association (SA Branch) and the Australian Dental Students Association. We are fortunate to have support from these bodies which allows us to have therapists, hygienists, dentists and specialists supporting us through our training or supplementing our education through extracurricular programs we run throughout the year. On top of this we have the support of various sponsors, without whom we would not be able to offer such a critical array of events and support services.
The AUDSS has been a family to me since my first year in the dental school. These last few years would not have been the same without the support the AUDSS has given me. I feel extremely privileged to be able to lead the AUDSS in its 100th year. I would love for all the current Dental and Oral Health students to get involved in the society, whether it’s being involved in the committee or being part of the many fun and educational events we throw every year. The experiences you gain through the AUDSS will be enriching and rewarding.
We at the AUDSS are here to support you in all of your endeavours and are willing to assist with your issues, no matter how big or small, so feel free to come up to any of us for a chat. I look forward to meeting you all this year!
