Summer smiles across America

For some practices, summer can be one of the busiest times of the year: entire families come in together for their check-ups, the reception area is filled with the laughter and heckling of siblings, and your team hums along at a more rapid pace in order to keep up.

While the noise level in your practice might be a positive sign that summer has arrived, it is also a reminder that the months away from school can be a hardship for some. Like children who rely on their school for their only hot meal of the day, for example, or children who benefit from programs like Oral Health America’s Smiles Across America program, which partners with school districts across the U.S. to provide oral healthcare to underserved populations.

There’s a very easy way to help make a positive difference in the lives of children in need of oral healthcare, while also making a positive difference in your practice through education. Now through January 31, 2016, for every new membership with the American Association of Dental Office Managers (AADOM), Patterson and AADOM will each donate $50 to Smiles Across America (use promo code OHA15), to help them continue to provide a much needed service.

By joining AADOM, you’ll not only be helping children in need, you’ll be gaining access to the nation’s largest association dedicated to the support of dental management professionals. AADOM’s goal is to share education, resources and information with its thousands of members in order to help them achieve the highest level of professional development.

So consider joining AADOM, or encouraging someone from your practice to join! Help create even more smiles this summer when you join AADOM through A Future to Smile About!
