AADOM names Office Manager of the Year for 2013

April 21, 2014

The American Association of Dental Office Managers named Cindy Sooter, of Fitterling Dentistry in Joplin, Mo., its Office Manager of the Year for 2013.

Ms. Sooter was nominated for the award by Dr. Michael Fitterling, who in his nomination letter described how she and the rest of the dental team developed a plan to treat patients after a devastating tornado hit Joplin in May 2011.

"I never thought at 62 years I'd be doing dentistry in trailers for a year. There were many challenges and struggles but Cindy saw a vision of what the future could be," Dr. Fitterling wrote in his letter.

Ms. Sooter has been with Dr. Fitterling's practice for 14 years. As the 2013 award winner, she will receive a special package provided by CareCredit, AADOM's founding sponsor, including complimentary registration to the 2014 AADOM conference in San Diego in September, a profile story in AADOM's magazine, "The Observer," and $1,000.
