As a dental management professional, you’re often responsible for the education, training, and development of your team and practice. But what about your growth?

From marketing and insurance to human resources and legislation, you’ll never face challenges in this industry alone again.

Discover all the perks of becoming an AADOM-recognized member of our local DPLN.

"2022 AADOM Testimonial


Being a part of a chapter means that I am always learning and growing and I am not alone. I have the support and encouragement of my chapter members plus the AADOM tribe. We are a support group like no other. I would not be where I'm at in my career without them.

Trish Calhoun

AADOM local is a game changer. Being able to meet with other dental managers that are dealing with the same issues as our office is eye opening. I no longer feel like I am on an island. I have made lifelong friendships and have been able to further my education and career.

Angie Coffey

Being an AADOM member not only benefits Dental Office Managers, but anyone in the dental field. It is a great networking group that gives you access to a load of education and training, whether you are wanting to advance in your career, become more knowledgeable, stay up to date with all the changes, learn about new technology or meet some new friends in the field. I love being apart of all of those things: from local meetings to the yearly conference and being a part of a group that has so much to offer and cares. AADOM ROCKS!

Mindy Garcia

Once I became a member of AADOM, I know it was the right fit for me from the beginning. The camaraderie, continuing education course and the DPLN meetings have been such a blessing to me. When I became an office manager in 2022, I had no idea where to start and then I found AADOM and then I found my local tribe. The help has been tremendously.

This could be you


As a dentist, you may be wondering how AADOM can benefit you.
Is our membership worth the investment?

We turn dental practice managers into dental practice ROCKSTARS.
There are so many advantages well-supported administrators can bring to your practice:

  • Dentists can focus on dentistry rather than the business, admin, and marketing side of the practice.

  • You can feel confident that your dental practice manager and admin team can implement new procedures and best practices to improve your bottom line.

  • Your dental practice has a trained expert who is up-to-date on current legislation, insurance, marketing practices, and more.

  • See improved patient recall, patient satisfaction, and efficiency at your office.
