New Office Managers Course

Red Bank, NJ:  June 29, 2011The American Association of Dental Office Managers (AADOM) will introduce a new course created specifically for new attendees or dental office managers with less than five years experience. AADOM President Heather Colicchio has noticed demand from not only office managers but from dentists asking how they can best prepare their employees for leadership of the team. Colicchio is excited about the course, stating that “this will help to lay a strong foundation for our new managers. We are proud to offer this as a resource to both new members and new dental office managers.”
The course will focus on management essentials such as structuring a team, essential office systems and leadership as a dental office manager. Emphasis will be placed on financial systems such as accounts receivable and insurance management. The team-taught course will also discuss the common situations that new managers face. Colicchio further emphasized that “management by trial and error is not the ideal way to run a practice. We’re here to shorten the learning curve.”
The team-taught course will feature material taught under the instruction of Teresa Duncan, MS, FAADOM. Duncan says “Our goal is to help dental office managers be prepared for most situations that a team leader will run into. I’m excited to be a part of AADOM’s new initiative.”
AADOM’s 7th Annual Conference will be held September 8th-10th in Nashville, TN. The “Introduction to Dental Office Management” course will be held on the first day of the conference. Registration information and course specifics can be found online at http://www.dentalmanagers.com/conference-2011/.
