Meet The AADOM Team

Bringing the Resources to Dental Practice Management Leaders

Our Front Line Team

Heather Colicchio

Founder & President

Heather Colicchio is the Founder and President of the American Association of Dental Office Management (AADOM). Heather has brought her background in business management and her unique skills in professional networking to help drive the success of AADOM, the largest professional organization of dental practice management professionals in the country. In 2003, when Heather was busy owning and operating her successful chain of gourmet cafes (as well as raising a toddler and a newborn), the furthest thing from her mind was starting a dental association, but life takes interesting turns sometimes. Through a dentist friend of hers, Heather became aware of a niche in dentistry that was not being filled. There was a lack of resources and education available for dental practice administrators. She casually began putting people in touch to help them fill this need (kind of like a hobby), but her entrepreneurial spirit took effect and soon AADOM was born. When AADOM reached over 1,000 members in less than two years, Heather sold her cafes to devote herself full-time to AADOM. It is now the largest professional association for dental business teams in the country, with 3,500+ members and hosts the country’s largest dental office management conference.

Heather is frequently recognized for her visionary role and has served as an inspiration to many in business and dentistry. She is particularly proud of how AADOM has empowered so many women in their professional development over the years. Heather was named one of the “Top 25 Women in Dentistry” in 2010. She lives in New Jersey with her husband, two children, and her Bichon, Sage (who thinks she’s a wolf). Heather claims she has the greatest job in the world. She loves Pete Townshend and practices Kundalini Yoga regularly.

Lorie Streeter

Vice President, CTC, FAADOM

As the Vice President of AADOM, Lorie’s role is to strategically build programs and relationships that create awareness of the AADOM mission and benefits to its members. Lorie’s rich history in dentistry, marketing, sponsor relations (for the last ten years), and office management allows her the unique perspective of working with not only the companies who help sponsor education and programs but also the practice administrators and what is best for their growth and development.

“As an office manager for 12 years, I have walked in your shoes. I would have given anything to have had a support system like the one AADOM provides for you – I was truly on an island.”

Lorie also owns , StreeterBuilt Coaching and Consulting, LLC.  Her dental career spans 28 years, 12 of which were spent working in a dental practice. In 2015 Lorie was named one of the Top 25 Women in Dentistry by Dental Products Report magazine.

Lorie lives in Washington with her husband. She is an accomplished musician and songwriter who has performed nationwide and has opened for Rascal Flatts, Marty Stuart, Tracy Byrd, and Collin Raye. Lorie is also passionate about wellness and the mind-body connection. Check her out on YouTube. This is a song that Lorie and her son Rhett wrote about people living with chronic illness; it is now featured as the theme song for the Oral Cancer Cause.
