Opportunities for a graduating orthodontic resident to enter into a traditional associate position and transition into the senior doctor’s practice are as scarce as a Begg bracket. The current job market is in rapid flux and failing to appreciate the shifting landscape is perilous for both the young associate trying to start a career and the senior doctor looking to transition out of private practice. This webinar will examine the current options a young orthodontist can expect and will explore what the senior doctor is competing against in searching for an associate and successor. This presentation is designed to highlight the current options a young orthodontist can expect upon graduation. We will also take a look at what the senior doctor is competing against when looking for an associate or successor.
