Immerse Yourself in the Care of Orthodontic Patients
  • Case Selection: Let’s learn to identify the “low hanging fruit” cases and refer the challenging ones out and create an additional six-figure revenue stream for your practice all without marketing- just by screening your existing patients! Aligning teeth also sets your restorative and implant cases up for long-term success.
  • Low Lab Fees: Struggling with high lab fees? We have a solution for that too! We’ll talk about the evolution of orthodontics over the last generation in a GP practice and great tips and tricks for keeping your lab fees as low as possible by using to alternative/generic aligner, in-direct bonding (IDB), or functional appliance companies for the right case.
  • Compliance and Minimizing Chair Time: This is often the most overlooked component of orthodontic success but the most critical for not only efficient outcomes but also ultimately for a successful patient experience. We’ll talk about technology and tips to minimize chair time and maximize outcomes and patient satisfaction.
