Eighth annual Dental Office Managers Conference set for Sept. 6-8

July 30, 2012

Scottsdale, Ariz.—Improving practice productivity and profitability may get a little easier with the help of the American Association of Dental Office Managers, who will meet this year from Sept. 6-8 at the Westin Kierland Resort here.

Supporting dental business professionals in career development and networking opportunities, AADOM is offering a line-up of courses designed to increase the business acumen of any dental practice. The program will cover education specific to efficient and successful management of the dental office in areas including marketing, communication, technology, insurance coding and leadership.

A pre-conference meeting of the 5th Annual Dental Spouse Business Network will convene Sept. 5. Created to address the specific needs and challenges of professionals whose spouses are the dentists in the practice, this event has filled a need for a niche group of dental office managers.

“This meeting is the highlight of the year,” said AADOM president Heather Colicchio, who added that she is looking forward to the opportunity to see returning members and welcome new ones. At the ADA Council on Dental Practice meeting in June, she gave a presentation on the organization's goal of helping dental business professionals achieve their highest level of professional development.

Social events will offer participants an opportunity to mix business with pleasure. Face-to-face access to dental consultants and notable speakers is planned. Motivational management expert Judy Kay Mausolf will give the keynote presentation. Although members of the entire dental team may attend, courses will be most interesting to dental office managers, dental spouses and dentists, the AADOM said.

The AADOM is an organization of professional office managers; practice administrators; patient coordinators; insurance and financial coordinators; and treatment coordinators of general and specialized dental practices.
