Today, I talk about broken, lost, non-fitting, bent, damaged retainers. When do you repair? When do you remake the retainer? Fees??? How do you charge? And do YOU offer retainer insurance? It makes parent, patient and YOU happy!
Everything you do as as an adult is based on the choices you make.
It’s not your parents, it’s not your past or present relationships, your job, the economy, politics,
an argument, or your age that is to blame.
You and only you are responsible for every decision and choice you make.

Are are important answers for today's question: How can you predict with reasonable certainty, what relapse will occur in your orthodontic patient after braces and appliances are completed and removed? And, how can retention reduce it?
Your all-wise subconscious mind knows how to deal with healing any part of your body, and any problems in your affairs.
Be aware of this truth. Do your part. Call on your Divine Consciousness within your subconscious mind.
Do not be concerned with the details, what is needed, what should be done.
Relax in trust and faith.
Stay busy loving others, being a light-worker. Know within your subconscious mind, the Divine Consciousness, knows what to do.
If you practice orthodontics, I bet you’ve heard this: “Doctor, YOUR RETAINER is broken!” Here is how to make “Letting Go and Letting the Patient” work!
