Red Bank, NJ: February 1, 2016 - The American Association of Dental Office Management (AADOM) is proud to announce that they were again chosen as the recipient of an educational grant from the Henry Schein Cares Foundation for the fifth consecutive year. The goal of the grant is for AADOM to produce and deliver education about “going green” to their membership, and to the dental community at large. Green dentistry promotes, among other things, reducing waste and using environmentally friendly products.
AADOM’s Vice President Lorie Streeter states, “We are honored to be chosen once again as a grant recipient by the Henry Schein Cares Foundation. With this grant AADOM is able to deliver this educational initiative that will continue to educate and empower our members to have a positive impact within their practice and their local communities.”
The AADOM “Green Leader Initiative” provides timely educational content to dental professionals through various delivery systems such as published articles, website content, and a private member forum to exchange ideas and best practices. These outlets allow members to take recommended best practices and implement them into their practices. The education is also supported via AADOM’s social media channels as well as AADOM TV.
As part of this initiative, AADOM will present the “Green Leader Award” at the 12th Annual Dental Management Conference this September in Boca Raton, FL. This award is given to an office manager whose practice exemplifies the utilization of successful green initiatives within their practice. The grant also enables the continuation of a Presentation Portal that allows participants to download all course materials for the conference electronically versus printing and shipping them to the conference. “The Presentation Portal is AADOM’s way of continuing the green spirit of the conference and of this grant,” states Heather Colicchio, AADOM President and Founder.
