Through the Noise #242
Virginia Bader // Chief Communications and Marketing Officer, Acting Chief of Staff // American Dental Education Association (ADEA)
Today we sit down with Virginia Bader of the American Dental Education Association. With many years under her belt in the nonprofit world, Ms. Bader runs the communications for ADEA as their Chief Communications and Marketing Officer. ADEA represents the 76 dental schools in the US and Canada as well as 20,000 individual members that are dental professionals. Unlike medical schools which includes years of residencies, dental schools must prepare students to be practicing dentists on day 1 so the curriculum work of the ADEA is especially crucial. Ms. Bader notes that the #1 childhood disease in the U.S. is tooth decay which is completely preventable.
Virginia Bader, M.B.A, is the Chief Communications and Marketing Officer as well as the Acting Chief of Staff for the American Dental Education Association (ADEA). ADEA represents all 76 dental schools in North America, as well as over 800 allied dental programs and 20,000 individuals in the dental education community.
