With proper training you can provide excellent treatment for 70% to 80% of your patients and refer only those who truly require a specialist.
What this means…
Competent orthodontic treatment will increase your income, enlarge your practice, and lower your stress. No magic, but more satisfying than Endo and more profitable than Operative.
Proper Orthodontic Training…
What comprises "proper" training? Let's be serious. It takes universities two to three years to train an orthodontist. You should expect to invest at least eight to ten weekends over a twenty to twenty-four month period to become competent in practicing orthodontics.
Three, four, even five course programs simply cannot provide enough instruction to assure that you attain "standard of care" proficiency.
