Celebrate Office Manager Appreciation Month This September

Dentistry Today


The American Association of Dental Office Management (AADOM) and Care Credit are teaming up to recognize September as Office Manager Appreciation Month. 

While everyone on the dental team contributes to the practice’s success, these partners report, there are many reasons to recognize dental office managers. Responsibilities include creating and implementing processes that deliver exceptional patient experience to managing the practice’s online reputation and team training.

As part of the celebration, office managers whose practices are enrolled with Care Credit can enter for a chance to win attendance to the 2020 AADOM conference at the Boca Raton Resort in Florida. All they have to do is take a photo of the Care Credit logo and submit a “best practices” tip as a caption on Instagram with the hashtags #AwesomeOM and #Sweepstakes.

Three grand prize winners will be chosen at random to receive a three-day, two-night trip including conference fees, air transportation, and resort accommodations, totaling $2749 in value. Dental office managers who aren’t currently AADOM members can sign up for a one-year VIP membership “Become a Member” at dentalmanagers.com with code OMAM19 to have their membership costs covered.

“Professional office managers and practice administrators should be celebrated,” said Beto Casellas, president and CEO of Care Credit. “Our practice development managers visit literally thousands of office managers a month and are constantly amazed by their commitment to their patients and practice. So many of them have been at the same practice for years. It’s that quality we want to celebrate.”

“AADOM is thrilled to be launching in conjunction with Care Credit Office Manager Appreciation Month,” said Heather Colicchio, founder and president of AADOM. “There is arguably no one more critical in the success of a dental practice than the person managing the business and the team. We are so excited to be able to recognize and reward all of the nation’s dental office managers throughout the month of September, and we look forward to doing this every year.”
