When it comes to promoting your own practice, your story matters! It represents how you came to be an orthodontist, how you live where you live, why you come to work every day with a smile. In fact, it is how you knowingly or unknowingly promote your practice.
Here’s your quick source for all the speakers and events!This year’s meeting will feature sessions on a range of topics from Contagious Marketing to Contemporary Transverse Diagnosis.
