The Royal Australian Army Dental Corps is a corps within the Australian Army. It was formed on 23 April 1943 as the Australian Army Dental Corps, before being granted the ‘Royal’ prefix in 1948. Prior to its formation dentists were part of the Australian Army Medical Corps.
The role of the RAADC is to provide dental care to army personnel in order to minimise the requirement for the evacuation of dental casualties, to conserve manpower and to reduce the burden of casualty evacuation.
