September is Office Manager Appreciation Month

Sept. 11, 2019
Office managers deserve to be recognized for all the contributions they make to their dental practices. This is their month!

CareCredit and the American Association of Dental Office Management (AADOM) have joined together to officially recognize September as Office Manager Appreciation Month.

Everyone on the dental team contributes to the practice’s success. But there are many reasons to recognize dental office managers. These “everyday heroes” manage multiple responsibilities, from creating and implementing processes that deliver an exceptional patient experience, to managing the practice’s online reputation and team training. The role of office managers has expanded and become more critical and complex.

As part of Office Manager Appreciation Month, CareCredit-enrolled dental practice office managers 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 CareCredit logo and submit a “best practices” tip as the caption on Instagram and include the hashtags #AwesomeOM and #Sweepstakes. Three grand prize winners will be chosen at random to receive a three-day, two-night trip that includes conference fees, air transportation, and hotel accommodations at the Boca Raton Resort, worth $2,749.

Dental office managers who are not AADOM members can sign up for a one-year AADOM VIP membership at, click “Become a Member,” and use code OMAM19 (case sensitive) to have their membership costs covered.

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

"AADOM is thrilled to launch Office Manager Appreciation Month in conjunction with CareCredit,” said Heather Colicchio, founder and president of AADOM. “There is arguably no one more critical to 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."
