Dental Care Alliance's Mike Cole Honored with NADP Leadership Award

Encouraging a spirit of partnership and collaboration between plans and Dental Service Organizations (DSOs) has earned Michael Cole, Vice President of Insurance Plan Management for Dental Care Alliance, the 2019 Don Mayes Leadership Award, presented today by the National Association of Dental Plans (NADP) at their annual conference, CONVERGE 2019, in Orlando. This award commends exemplary service by volunteer group chairs and vice chairs with NADP association leadership spanning three or more years.

Volunteer Service

As Vice Chair of the NADP Operations WorkGroup, Cole serves as an important communications link between the WorkGroup and the DSO Advisory Council on multiple projects, including provider directory validation and credentialing.

Truly a leader by example, Cole actively participated in the development of the Provider Directory Validation process; and, his company, Dental Care Alliance, was one of the first DSOs to participate in the program.

In 2014, Mike came prepared to a face-to-face meeting of the Operations WorkGroup focused on streamlining credentialing. His notebooks, filled with credentialing requirements from multiple plans, helped to facilitate the discussion. As a result, the Operations WorkGroup developed a one-page credentialing form for member use, that is available today on the NADP website.

In his eight years as an NADP Member, Cole has also developed numerous CONVERGE educational sessions, offering both plan as well as DSO perspectives.

“Mike’s contributions to understanding and breaking down the barriers to the successful partnership of DSOs and dental plans has been critical to several NADP initiatives,” said NADP Executive Director Evelyn F. Ireland, CAE. “He is an asset to both the industry and association.”

“Mike Cole is a determined leader, who has served DCA’s affiliated practices and patients for more than 20 years,” commented James Nick, Dental Care Alliance's Chief Revenue Officer. “His contributions to the industry and ability to foster meaningful relationships with insurance plans is second to none. We couldn’t be more proud of Mike and are grateful that the association has recognized his decades of service.”
