ADA center for professional successThe American Dental Association (ADA) recently launched a new online resource, the ADA Center for Professional Success.

The microsite is a free, one-stop shop for ADA members who seek resources on topics such as how to balance personal and professional life, or how to effectively plan for retirement.

“[Dental professionals] spend their days making clinical decisions to provide the best treatment for their patients,” said Robert A. Faiella, DMD, MMSc, president of the ADA. “While caring for patients is their primary goal, they are also juggling business and personal tasks every day. The ADA Center for Professional Success allows members to focus on [patient care] while we help to streamline the rest.”

Users of the new site are privy to a variety of features and content, as new material is added regularly. Features include financial calculators to factor loan payments and overhead expenditures, in-person and online practice management education, tips on office ergonomics, patient communication strategies, marketing materials to recruit and retain patients, as well as information on buying and selling a practice.

ADA members are invited to take a virtual tour of the new site and utilize the “Ask the ADA” feature to pose practice management and wellness questions to ADA staff.
