A new online resource for dental office managers is the result of a collaboration between the ADA and the American Association of Dental Office Management, a national association of dental office managers.
The two organizations teamed up in an effort to better help dental professionals with dental office management.
The ADA Hall on AADOM’s eCampus provides an opportunity for dental office managers to explore resources the ADA has developed with the intent of helping members succeed. According to Dr. Nima Aflatooni, chair of the ADA Council on Dental Practice’s practice management subcommittee, “Topics covered by those resources include key areas relating to dental office management: practice marketing, patient communications, health and wellness and dental benefits.”
Dr. Stacey K. Van Scoyoc, chair of the ADA Council on Dental Practice, said, “The council has an ongoing and active interest in issues impacting the dental team because we recognize that the success of any dental practice is directly linked to the success of the dental team. ADA practice management resources can lessen many of the pain points dental office managers report experiencing as they perform their various responsibilities."
The resources available through the ADA Hall are those that are open for viewing without logging in. Member dentists should be aware that through those resources, their staff members may find something on which they want take a deeper dive and view materials that are protected behind the members-only wall of ADA.org. In those instances, a member dentist can decide if they want to login and then subsequently share information with their team.
The council has maintained a liaison relationship with AADOM for several years, including presenting a course at a previous AADOM conference. The ADA’s support of AADOM’s training efforts continues in 2019 and will feature a session at this year’s meeting highlighting ADA practice management resources that may be helpful to office managers
