Join us at the 2022 Winter Conference in Orlando, Florida! This is both an in-person AND live-streaming event that you don't want to miss! Shannon Patterson will be presenting, How to Recruit and Retain Orthodontic Associations in a Competitive Market, on Sunday, January 30 at 8:30 am in the Pacifica Ballroom.
In the last year, we have seen major changes in recruitment for orthodontic associates. Our industry is experiencing constant change and residents have multiple offers in hand as they graduate which mean demand is greater than supply. Currently, our industry has four generations of orthodontic providers, all of whom have different priorities when it comes to evaluating career and practice opportunities. Today’s candidates are much more informed about practice models, so it is vital for potential employers and owners who plan to transition ownership in the near future to understand the “one-size-fits-all” practice model is no longer appealing to younger doctors. This lecture will provide recruitment strategies and retention factors whether you’re hiring in an urban, suburban or rural setting.
- Evaluate recruitment strategies and retention factors for hiring associates whether you're located in urban, suburban, or rural settings.
- Understand the competitive landscape in today’s market for hiring and retaining orthodontic associates.
- Differentiate your practice opportunity while recruiting candidates.
Just wanted to say thank you for your presentation yesterday. I thought it was great and provided us with a great perspective.
