As a new practice owner I feel that TOSC’s commitment to clinical excellence fills an important role that can be easily overshadowed as we strive to make our businesses successful in this new and competitive marketplace.  The prevailing voices in orthodontics at the moment are focused on the business of orthodontics:  maximizing production, increasing marketing effectiveness, and fine-tuning office efficiency.  While these things are essential to business success they need to be built on exceptional clinical results for our patients - - this is our professional and ethical responsibility to the community as healthcare providers.  Being invested in TOSC and learning from the members who represent decades of orthodontic clinical success provides this balance.

In our short time being a part of TOSC, we have come to feel very strongly about it, especially the young membership growth and residency involvement. Our annual meeting has lectures that are always top notch and the case display room has been has been an invaluable part of our continued education and a catalyst for decision making in our partnership. If we were to add another partner, we’d like to do so after reviewing cases with them at the TOSC meeting.

In my opinion, the TOSC annual meeting is the main reason to be a part of this organization.  The bulk of the learning and relationship building occurs at the annual meetings.  At the most recent meeting in Fort Worth, I could not pull myself away from the model room.  What other opportunities do we have to see how a variety of other talented orthodontists treat a variety of cases?  To see first hand what other doctors struggle with is comforting, and to see what amazing things can be accomplished is inspirational.  After residency, as I am out practicing on my own, I desperately miss the feedback and input of fellow practitioners.  For me, this gap is filled at TOSC.  Specifically, this year, I brought a 4-bi extraction case on a protrusive hispanic female for whom we had fabricated upper and lower essix retainers.  Several seasoned members advised that they regularly see extraction space crack open on these protrusive cases and advised on a lower bonded 4+4 retainer for at least 6 months.  I would much rather learn this from my peers than from experience!  ;)  In addition, I was able to sit with my mentor, Dr. Corbin, and review the case I brought in detail.  I was considering submitting the case to complete my board exam, and he gave me some excellent insight on my ceph tracings. Attending the Schudy luncheon is another highlight of the annual meetings.  To see the state’s top orthodontists in one room sharing how TOSC has made them better, sharing memories, and poking at each other just makes me love our profession and the people in it. In 40 years, I want my peer group to be the senior orthodontists in the room joking about who has won the most Schudy awards (slow down, Brunson). As if all of this isn’t enough, over the past few annual meetings, I have built a relationship with Dr. Scott, from my hometown.  She has become a generous mentor to me - she has helped me treatment plan cases, and allowed me to shadow at her office to pick up many many pearls of wisdom. Throughout the year, as I am treating cases, I am identifying which ones might be interesting to bring to the TOSC annual meeting.  I check my second molars in all of my cases - just to be sure!  :)  TOSC is already helping me maintain high standards, even in the middle of a busy, stressful day.  This organization is truly a blessing in my life.  Thank you Dr. Hime for inviting me to join, and thank you Dr. Franklin for leading us forward!  See you at the next annual meeting!

I believe the biggest value to being a member is it requires me to go back and critically review my work. At first I found presenting my “finished work” a little intimidating but I found that I was always able to learn from people I consider to be mentors as to how I could have done some treatments better or differently which has made me a better orthodontist. If you strive for excellent treatment, there is no better way to help yourself get better.

I have attended the annual TOSC meetings for 4 years. My first year attending, I was welcomed and befriended by all of the TOSC members, and have developed special friendships with some very talented orthodontists. One aspect of attending TOSC that I have particularly enjoyed, is the opportunity to participate in the mentor program. I have greatly benefited from sitting down one on one with some of the brightest and most respected doctors to discuss my work and I always seem to take home some great “pearls of wisdom” that have helped me become a better orthodontist. I am always so impressed by the cases presented by TOSC members and I learn so much from studying them and discussing them. I leave the meetings energized to provide that same level of excellence to my patients. To anyone considering attending TOSC, I would tell you that you won’t find a meeting where you will have more fun, be with a better or more talented group of individuals, or learn more. There is a wealth of knowledge shared at the TOSC meetings. From the lectures, to the mentoring program, to the case presentations, TOSC has become something that I mark on my calendar each year and I really look forward to attending. I hope to see you there.
