Change is tough for any practice. However, in the eyes of Mary Rickert Lord, general manager of ROG Orthodontics for over 20 years, success of a practice depends on effectively carrying out the doctors' vision. At this year's annual session, Mary will be encouraging empathy, creative thinking and a team approach to problem solving within a practice. Be sure to check out her session, "Your Resistance is Showing - Hands-On Approaches to Change".
Thinking back over the last four years, how have you grown in the ortho world? Dr. James "Jep" Paschal, will be taking us back at our annual session in just 18 days. While he did spend the last four years traveling, skiing, diving and exploring with his family, he also spent them learning the ins and outs of In-House Digital Orthodontics. Don't miss his lecture at live on Oct 2nd, friends!
