Sunday Lecture - Business Consultant, Paul Zuelke on “The Key to Growth – Making it Easy for Your Patients Buy The Product You Sell” (Crystal A)  

* Special Introduction of our Gold Sponsor, OrthoBanc

Case acceptance rates are terrible in the orthodontic world these days, and it is not due to our less than stellar economy.  The middle class makes up a huge percentage of orthodontic patients yet the paychecks of the middle class today are less than they were in 2008/2009 when our economy started to crumble. New patient flow has been slowly trending upwards for more than 32 consecutive months but the number of new case starts has not improved in proportion to those increased exams.  Orthodontists, by pushing outside financing companies, auto-debit companies, reducing treatment times and therefore increasing patients’ monthly payments, are simply making orthodontic care unaffordable for an ever greater percentage of the population.  There’s an easy fix! Come learn how to implement that fix! Read Speaker's Bio >
