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 kicked in 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 host of 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 in 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.
