SOMSA is the national society of oral and maxillofacial administrators, which represents more than 290 practices in North America. We promote the professional development of OMS practice administrators and office managers through peer interaction and educational programs. We are recognized as the leading national authority on all aspects of oral and maxillofacial surgery practice management.

Corporate sponsorship encompasses great benefits beyond the annual conference, including:

  • Unparalleled access to key decision makers from the most successful OMS practices
  • Quality, personal interactions and networking opportunities, like in the exhibit hall, during meals, and at social events at our conference
  • Development of name recognition
  • Diverse marketing opportunities for every budget designed to maximize return
