How Can Dentists Benefit?
If you want a more efficient, profitable, and happier practice, then read on...

Our vision is to advance the leadership, education, and growth of dental office managers in the Triangle area. Why? Because we want each dental practice to be profitable, efficient, and a wonderful place for every patient to visit. Each dental practice with an AADOM trained office manager will enjoy:

  • Measurable and sustainable improvements in several areas of the practice, from marketing to patient recall.
  • Dentists who feel confident in the strategies of the management team as they adhere to the latest regulations and best practices.
  • The treatment team (including dentists) having more time to focus on caring for patients rather than the business side of the practice.
  • A more profitable practice with simple systems that focus on sustainable results.
