Bill Proffit playfully said, that “No one knows more than a second-year orthodontic resident.” He was alluding to the overconfidence of a new orthodontist who has yet to experience the struggles of private practice. Often, I wish that I could go back in time and speak to my younger self so that I could share the valuable experiences I eventually learned through trial and error; if only I knew then what I know now. This heart-felt presentation will be a journey of my personal and professional growth, from an overconfident resident to a humbled orthodontist. This lecture will go deeper into topics discussed at this past GORP meeting.

Learning Objectives:

  • Change your focus from collection goals to treatment goals.
  • Reevaluate the benefits of Phase I treatment.
  • Discover the power of humility in growing your practice correctly.

Fantastic lecture from a great orthodontis and teacher. There are really some fantastic pearls in this lecture to help us all in day to day practice. And Neal's humility is refreshing and inspiring. Thanks for such a great presentation!

What I love about this lecture is that "quality care" is the common thread, with proper context about the good and bad things we do, told at an authentic and personal level by an excellent clinician. These are the lectures where I learn the most. Great job as always Dr. Neil Kravitz!
