Advancement Prospects

Orthodontists in private practice can advance by increasing the size of their practices. One way to do this is to build a reputation with the general dentists in the surrounding community who will refer patients to the orthodontist. Orthodontists who can effectively communicate with a patient's general dentist and facilitate easy coordination of treatment are more likely to be trusted by the general dentist and therefore get more patient referrals.
