With the new year just a few days away, we can look forward with optimism, confidence and new planning.
Wait a minute.
Did I say optimism?
Am I writing for dentists?
The dental world is changing. Big insurance, big corporations, big government -- pressures from every direction affecting American dentists.
There is something you can do about this — that’s where the plan comes in.
You already have the talent. After all, it took courage, intelligence and determination to graduate from dental school in the first place. Harness all of that to learn the skills to do more than just survive -- but to prosper!
Having a thriving orthodontics program in your practice is a great way to address these issues — and I put an emphasis on ‘thriving.’ I will teach you how -- not just the PRACTICE of orthodontics, but the BUSINESS of orthodontics and the LOVE of orthodontics.
Here's your opportunity to do just that. With the six-session ELEMENTS comprehensive orthodontics course, you can expect and get the best. The first session is January 11-13 in Longview, Texas. REGISTER for your course today - call (859) 806-0615.
For more than 25 years, I've taught many dentists from around the world -- Pediatric, GPs and Orthodontists -- about orthodontics. I've treated thousands of orthodontic patients, and served on faculties of three dental schools. This knowledge and outstanding results can be yours, too.
In 2019, start learning orthodontics for your practice. Start America's BEST comprehensive orthodontics course on January 11-13, 2019, in Longview, Texas. For more information or to register, all (859) 806-0615.
