Debbie Evans and Jennifer Steadman each come away with top honors in a virtual ceremony.

The American Association of Dental Office Management (AADOM) has announced the winners of the 2020 Practice Administrator of the Year Award, and this time around they had twice as much fun. For the first time, there were two winners: Debbie Evans, FAADOM, Practice Administrator of Wainright & Wassel, DDS in Raleigh, North Carolina, and Jennifer Steadman, FAADOM, Director of Operations of Dentistry by Design in Methuen, Massachusetts.

This prestigious award was conferred by AADOM’s 2019 Practice Administrator of the Year, Greg Prince, FAADOM, in a virtual ceremony hosted by the association and broadcast live via Facebook. “The presentation of this award is one of the highlights of the year for AADOM members. The fact that we held it virtually did not impact the excitement or elation around announcing the winners. In fact, it was wonderful to be able to broadcast it live so that all of the nominee’s families, doctors and teams could be a part of it”, states Heather Colicchio, AADOM President.
