Q:  What is the most rewarding aspect of your career?
A:  I love working with patients. Providing the best patient experience is what truly fills my cup. Giving patients something to smile about and providing them with opportunities to improve their smile is what makes dentistry so great. In orthodontics we are able to treat not only children, but adults too.

Q:  What do you see as some of the benefits of membership to AADOM?
A: 
One thing I love most about AADOM is the opportunity for networking and learning. There are many great mentors and speakers who provide a wealth of knowledge for me to be able to grow as an individual and provide tools to help grow our practice. The national conference provides such great valuable information that I can’t get at a lot of the local conferences. AADOM focuses on the front office team and I think that is important because we are often overlooked in the dental field. Not only do I learn at these conferences, I have such a great time with our chapter members and new friends we have met along the way.

Q:  What other services would you like to see AADOM provide for dental office managers?
A: 
I like the chapter binders and the new resources that are coming out for the local chapters. I am happy with what his being offered now.
