Why Changing the Game Matters to Your Success

Jan 29, 2022 1:00pm ‐ Jan 29, 2022 2:30pm

What if you were told your whole life that your dreams are not possible? Dr. Corinne Devin was able to conquer three dreams (orthodontists, pageantry, naval officer) that she had been told were impossible based on her personal areas of weakness that required her to challenge herself to overcome them. She was able to forge a path that allowed her to tackle several difficult opportunities. From them, she learned how to be a feminine leader in a male-dominated environment. She navigated her career and learned tools that she could bring to each area of her life. Dr. Devin will discuss the hardships and struggles she encountered along the way and how she conquered them.

Learning Objectives:

  • Believe in yourself and not in what others tell you that you cannot do.
  • Feel empowered that there is nothing you cannot figure out.
  • Understand what life as a dentist in the Navy looks like.

In the last year we have seen major changes in recruitment for orthodontic associates. Our industry is experiencing constant change and residents have multiple offers in hand as they graduate which means demand is greater than supply. Currently our industry has four generations of orthodontic providers, all of whom have different priorities when it comes to evaluating career and practice opportunities. Today’s candidates are much more informed about practice models, so it is vital for potential employers and owners who plan to transition ownership in the near future understand the “one-size-fits-all” practice model is no longer appealing to younger doctors.

Learning Objectives:

  • Evaluate recruitment strategies and retention factors for hiring associates whether you're located in urban, suburban or rural settings.
