By Roger P. Levin, DDS

The orthodontic practice as a business model is actually rather simple. The more new patients you have and the more of those patients that you close, the higher your practice production.

Posted by Brooke Milligan on Jul 6, 2018 11:44:32 AM

By Roger P. Levin, DDS

After you’ve been a practice leader for a number of years, it becomes clear that your best referral source is your patients. Getting patient referrals is an inexpensive and relatively easy way to ensure that your practice has a steady stream of new patients. So what will get patients raving about your practice?

Have you ever had that moment of panic when you realize you’ve lost all your important data? Our phones, tablets, and computers have become integral pieces of technology that hold a lot of information and data from our lives. Think about it - how many times a day do you take pictures with your phone or save important data on your computer?

This year was my first year attending the annual Ortho2 Users Group Meeting and it didn’t disappoint! As the Multimedia Marketing Coordinator at Ortho2, I’ve spent a lot of time working on UGM email campaigns, posting on our social channels, and helping design various materials leading up to the event. It was exciting to see the hard work behind the scenes put into action.

I had heard many stories about the meeting from UGM veterans, and I was eager to experience the meeting for myself. Since returning home to Iowa, my brain is still rushing from all the excitement. For those of you who haven’t experienced a UGM yet, here are my top five reasons why you should consider going.
