Successfully Integrating Today’s Technology into Clinical Orthodontic Practice

In this presentation she will share her experience to insure the success of orthodontic practitioners, shorten their learning curve and increase their efficiency.

Afternoon Session

Strategy in Practice: What’s Your Plan?

Webster’s dictionary defines strategy as a carefully developed plan or method for achieving a goal.  As practicing orthodontists, how many of us have a strategy?  Dr. Alvetro will share strategies and methodologies for developing, maintaining, and marketing your practice.  By the end of the lecture you will be able to start to formulate a strategy to successfully reach your goals.

Strategic planning: A simple and systemized approach will be shared that can be used to decide what your goals are and how to achieve them.
Strategic organization of your team: Staffing can be a challenge. Learn to embrace this by implementing strategies that build on your team’s strengths.
Strategies of patient management: Systems used to maximize patient satisfaction and treatment efficiency will be shared along with techniques for creating concierge type service.
Strategic philanthropy: Grow your practice, create your own brand and reputation, all while serving the greater good of others.
