We are so very proud to announce that our very own Erika Pusillo, Practice Optimizer for Spodak Dental Group, has earned the AADOM’s coveted Green Leader Award for 2023!
She is the 10th recipient, and was presented with the award at the recent 2023 AADOM Conference in Orlando, Fla., which was presented by Henry Schein and the American Association of Dental Office Management (AADOM).
“It is such an amazing honor to be recognized as a Green Leader and use this platform to promote the many ways we all can be green leaders,” said Erika, who has been with the practice since 2009. “There is always an opportunity to live out our company’s core values and not only be a pioneer in the dental field, but also a pioneer in our community and for our planet as a whole.”
The Green Leader Initiative aims to engage members in reducing the environmental impact of “business as usual” dentistry, which perfectly falls in line with Erika’s goals for our state-of-the-art, 13,000 square foot, LEED Gold Certified dental operations. In addition to optimizing the practice to take the very best care of our patients, she works to create an efficient, green and sustainability-focused workflow process that also takes the very best care of the team and the planet.
Through many initiatives – past, present and future – Erika has remained resolute in her goal of providing the very best dental care in a green facility with a growing team, all while creating the smallest footprint possible. Her efforts include, but are not limited to, supporting businesses and suppliers that have both a sustainable mindset and a minimal impact on the environment,
utilizing digital technology to reduce waste, using eco-friendly cleaning products, implementing waste- and water-reducing systems throughout the facility, and organizing beach cleanups and tree planting events for the team and community.
We are so thrilled for her, and look forward to the many continued ways she helps our practice and our team be the very best!
