Chris Bentson will be presenting, The New Orthodontic Economic Model - Trends, Data, and Metrics, at the Alabama Association of Orthodontists Annual Meeting. The orthodontic specialty is moving from a historical and well-known economic model to a new digital economy model. As this transition takes place, some fundamental business metrics used to measure and manage the orthodontic practice are changing and need to be understood. Concurrent with this economic model change practice modalities, doctor demographics and consumer preferences are also evolving. This presentation will put forth the business data on where the specialty has been, where it is today, and a view of where it is headed. An hour of discussion after the presentation is reserved.
On behalf of the Cleveland Society of Orthodontists, I want to tell you how much we enjoyed your presentation on Business Succession Planning. Our members who attended spoke favorably about the information you presented and were glad they attended. Your lecture brought new insights and valuable information to our profession; I would imagine they will all put some of your ideas into practice.
