DPR honors AADOM founder Heather Colicchio

23 10 2010

Even though Heather Colicchio didn’t begin her career in the dental industry, she sure has made an impact during the last seven years she’s been part of it.

She is the founder of the AADOM and works to bring education, support and a feeling of community to its members. Her efforts earned her a spot as one of DPR’s Top 25 Women in Dentistry.

During the afternoon portion of Saturday’s conference, all the past and the current Office Manager of the Year gathered on stage to honor Colicchio while Lorie Streeter, VP of Business Development, read the nomination letter she submitted to DPR. Advanstar Dental Media Director of Content Thais Carter also was on hand to congratulate Colicchio as well as Adrianna Manning, an office manager who also made this year’s Top 25 list.

Carter talked to the group about why DPR developed the Top 25 and the importance of looking beyond the products to the people who make them and this industry successful. She also encouraged the group to think about who they might want to nominate for next year’s Top 25.

After the awards ceremony, the AADOM charter fellowship class members were inducted, complete with cap and gown.  The afternoon continued with a raffle and prizes from exhibitors, including a Kindle, cash, an iPad, gift certificates and an iPod nano. This conference wrapped up with attendees breaking into roundtables by specialty for discussion, and with a lot of enthusiastic members looking forward to next year’s meeting in Nashville.
