During the recent American Association of Dental Office Managers (AADOM) meeting in Nashville, eight women were selected by Patterson Dental to receive scholarships toward the conference.

Carla Bennett, Jenni Current, Kristen Edwards, Margaret Homer, Rebecca Hovarter, Connie J. Kratohvil, Laura Terlosky, and Deana Zost received complimentary admission to the AADOM conference, up to $600 in travel expenses, and a complimentary hotel stay at the host hotel, the Opryland Gaylord Resort.

“We also took the winners to dinner on Friday night,” said Jennifer Hannon, Patterson Dental’s director of marketing. “Every year, this is part of the scholarship tradition. The Patterson team loves to meet the scholarship winners one-on-one, so we treat them to dinner so that we can learn even more about them and what they do for their practices.”

Of the eight scholarship recipients, Homer was eventually named as the Diamond Scholar award winner by Patterson, a company that works closely with office managers throughout the year.

“The Diamond Scholar is one of our scholarship winners who the Patterson team believes is an exceptional office manager, going above and beyond the job expectations, and someone who is dedicated to their practice and continuing education,” Hannon said. “This year, we’re happy to have Margaret Homer as our scholarship winner, as she’s an exceptional office manager with an impressive understanding of the job, given that she’s only been in an office manager position for five years. We have no doubt she will have a great career and be an outstanding representative for not only her profession, but Patterson Dental and AADOM as well.”
