Red Bank, N.J., and Costa Mesa, Calif., December 5, 2012 — The American Association of Dental Office Managers (AADOM) has awarded Deanna Alexander the eighth annual AADOM Office Manager of the Year Award, sponsored by CareCreditSM. Deanna Alexander, FAADOM, is the office manager for Daniel R. Sadler, DDS, PLLC of East Lansing, Mich.
AADOM annually recognizes dental professionals who provide exceptional patient care and are an inspiration and leader within their practice. As in past years, many nominations were reviewed by a committee comprised of industry leaders. “Every year we have so many exceptional candidates that choosing the recipient of this prestigious award is never an easy task,” says Heather Colicchio, AADOM president. “This year the committee agreed that Deanna’s unwavering commitment to her practice, patients and community made her truly noteworthy.”
“Deanna is a tireless advocate for our practice and patients,” wrote Dr. Sadler in his nomination letter. “She is dedicated to doing everything she can to ensure our patients receive the very best treatment and patient care. Deanna extends her commitment to serve outside the office as well. It doesn’t matter if she is fundraising in support of important non-profit organizations, assisting with the Miles for Smiles program with our local Head Start, or presenting the Healthy Teeth program to elementary school children, Deanna exemplifies compassion and professionalism as she quietly changes lives of those around her for the better.”
“I’m truly honored to be the 2012 recipient of this award,” says Deanna. “Our office is ‘committed to excellence in an environment of care and concern for our patients.’ That’s a philosophy that we developed many years ago and it’s the driving force behind everything that we do.”
As the 2012 award winner, she will receive a special package provided by CareCredit, AADOM’s founding sponsor, including complimentary registration to the 2013 AADOM conference, a profile story in AADOM’s newsletter The Observer and $1,000 in prize money.
