Train Your Office Manager – Make Your Business Thrive

May 5, 2011

Your office manager is most likely a vital key to the successful day-to-day operation of your practice.  This individual not only helps manage staff but also helps to oversee your business.  This is a person who you mostly likely value and whose skills you want to grow.  The Colorado Dental Manager’s Association (CDMA), an organization separate from the CDA, was established to do just that. 


Bill Exempts Dentists from 1099 Business Tax Reporting Requirements

April 14, 2011

On April 14, President Obama signed a bill to exempt small businesses from burdensome 1099 tax reporting requirements. Before this bill passed, small businesses would have been required to issue a 1099 tax form to all vendors that were paid $600 or more during a year, creating hundreds of pages of new paperwork in each dental office. The American Dental Association partnered with other small business groups to pursue an exemption from this requirement. This exemption is great news for dentists!

Annual Session Registration Available Online

April 6, 2011

Don't miss the CDA Annual Session!
June 9-12, 2011
Snowmass, CO

This weekend has something for everyone:

CE: Several courses are available including Dr. Roger Wise speaking on a "Multidisciplinary Approach to the Management of Dental Alveolar Trauma."

House of Delegates: This annual business meeting of the CDA is thrilled to welcome a keynote address by American Dental Association President Dr. Raymond Gist.

Live Entertainment: Vocal rock band, Face, will be performing a cappella style on Saturday night.  Using just five voices and a vocal drummer, or "beat-boxer," Face creates a rock-music phenomenon that has to be seen to be believed. No other instruments or special effects - just six guys.  They most recently appeared on season one of NBC's a cappella competition, "The Sing Off."

Recreation: When not in class, the weekend also features yoga courses, a beading/jewelry-making class, a guided mountain bike ride, the golf tournament and many other outdoor activities.

And of course attendees and families won't want to miss the brand new "mammoth" exhibit in Snowmass. Recently, crews in Snowmass have recovered the parts of eight to 10 American mastodons, four Columbian mammoths, and several other animals, insects, and plant matter representing several different Ice Age ecosystems.  Scientists consider the find to be one of the most significant in Colorado history.
