Patterson Scholarship Winners



Continuing education is important for the advancement of any professional and can help lead a practice to growth. Dental office managers are often essential to the success of a practice, bringing in a multitude of skill sets from customer service to marketing to billing and beyond. We value the continued education and support of dental office managers,  which is why Patterson has been the long-standing Diamond Sponsor of the American Association of Dental Office Managers (AADOM), a national organization that provides education and networking opportunities, and an energetic, welcoming community of office managers from all over the country.

Every year, Patterson awards scholarships for dental office managers to attend the annual AADOM conference, which is why I always look forward to attending. It gives our team a chance to meet these winners face-to-face and see first-hand how inspirational they can be. This year, we awarded 8 scholarships to exceptional dental office managers and as usual, I was so impressed with their experiences and knowledge.

There was one office manager who really stood out to us. She is a relatively new office manager and treatment coordinator with about five years under her belt. She exemplified a tremendous amount of knowledge and energy to effectively and efficiently run a profitable practice. She strives to make sure patients have a comfortable experience and that her team members are motivated and have the support they need. Her name is Margaret Homer, and we awarded her our 2015 Patterson Diamond Scholar award.
