The Australian Dental Association New South Wales, the peak body for dentistry in NSW and the ACT, has two new appointees. Dr Rohan Krishnan has been elected president, and Dr Dominic Aouad has been elected vice-president.

The owner and principal of a private dental practice in West Pymble on Sydney’s North Shore, Dr Krishnan has been ADA NSW vice-president for the last 12 months. 

Dr Krishnan, who is currently an Honorary Clinical Associate Lecturer at the University of Sydney, has been actively involved with the association since graduating with honours in dentistry from the University of Sydney in 2012.

“Being elected as president of ADA NSW is a great responsibility and I’m looking forward to leading our organisation’s efforts to support and empower dentists to advance oral health in Australia,” Dr Krishnan said. 

Dr Krishnan has also served as chair of Filling the Gap, ADA NSW’s charity which provides pro bono dental services to those who cannot access mainstream programs.
