Welcome to SOMSA

As administrators of busy oral surgery practices, do you find that there are never enough hours in a day to complete every task or process every request made either by your staff or doctors?

We juggle our schedules and prioritize; we take and return many important calls; schedule and attend important meetings; make time to listen to our staffs’ and doctors’ concerns; and update and implement important changes at the office.

Our responsibilities in running a successful OMS practice are endless. It is our responsibility as administrators/managers to make sure that every day runs smoothly, efficiently, and harmoniously.

A huge benefit of joining SOMSA is having access to other practice managers around the country who encounter the same issues you do. We have a lively discussion of those issues and share our solutions to them in the SOMSA forums. It is strictly Members Only, so join today to get the support and knowledge of people just like you.
