The concept of ‘Tribes’ is something that the renowned thought leader Seth Godin has written about extensively. His concept of tribes is that it is human nature to want to be part of a community of people who share common goals and values. People who are part of the dental profession are no different. Dentists have long had the opportunity to be members in various associations and societies that promote education and fellowship within the profession. The great news is that the American Association of Dental Office Managers (AADOM) is a tribe geared specifically for office managers and business team members. This awesome group was created to provide a forum where office managers can learn and connect with the leaders in the dental profession. Today we are were very fortunate to have Lorie Streeter, the Senior Vice President of AADOM as a special guest on the Thriving Dentist Show.
The role of an office manager in a thriving practice is absolutely critical. Lorie’s dental career spans over 22 years now, 12 of which were spent as an office manager. Lorie understands the unique demands of the office manager position and perhaps most importantly she understands how the office manager can help a dental practice achieve its full potential. Lorie’s role as Senior VP of AADOM is to seek out resources and companies willing to invest in your future and also to create unique education opportunities for AADOM members.BUSTING LOOSE From Insurance Dependence in Your Dental Practice
