MW22B09 - Merging Existing Orthodontic and Pediatric Dentistry Practices to Thrive in Today's Changing Environment

Jan 29, 2022 10:30am ‐ Jan 29, 2022 11:00am


In today's changing environment, sometimes thinking outside the box and taking a risk can be rewarding. Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontic combined practices are abundant and profitable, but most are created from the ground up or by having one service and adding the other as a start-up. In this lecture, Drs. Cooper and Dyer will discuss their journey in merging existing orthodontic and pediatric dentistry practices to create a combined ortho-pedo practice.

Learning Objectives:

  • Determine if combining your orthodontic practice with a local pediatric dentistry practice is a viable possibility.
  • Evaluate how the dental community in your area will respond to such a merger.
  • Consider different human resource, benefits, accounting, and retirement roadblocks that may be encountered.
