Our Experts Rave
"I have had the opportunity to present to and attend ODEA meetings on a number of occasions. I have found members to be career-minded professionals dedicated to business aspects of the dental practice. They have an excellent grasp on many issues, such as employment, and personnel matters, risk management, billing and collections, etc., that are so necessary to the successful operation of a dental practice. I wholeheartedly support this association and encourage Oregon dentists to do so as well."

"I find the Oregon Dental Executives' Association invaluable of improving the skills of my front office personnel and improving the 'bottom line' of my office. I encourage all Oregon Dentists to support ODEA by having their administrative staff become members. It is one of the best investments you can make for your office!"
