Upcoming AAO-Sponsored Orthodontic Resident Webinars

Bentson Clark & Copple is honored to participate in the AAO’s The Business of Orthodontics Webinar Series. This 10-part educational webinar series is directed toward today’s orthodontic resident community. The webinars began in September and will continue through April 2013. The series covers topics from starting/purchasing a practice to selling/retiring from practice, and everything in between. The webinars will be presented by a variety of industry insiders and consultants.

Chris Bentson will be presenting his first webinar (out of three that are scheduled) on October 9 at 8:15 PM EST/5:15 PM PST, and will last 75 minutes. There will be allocated time at the end for a question and answer session. The title of his lecture is Path to Ownership, Partnership, or Associateship.

For residents, understanding the options for employment, how to find them, and what to review when you do find them is extremely important. This webinar will be directed primarily with an orientation to the process of how buyers and sellers or employers for orthodontic opportunities happen. A review of the current market conditions and review of the timeline, expense, and materials needed to review an opportunity will be discussed. Current valuation methodology and a high-level overview of the operational and financial metrics that should be reviewed will be covered as well as associate pay, and cash flow pro-formas. Partnership methods of buying in will also be discussed.

This webinar series is free for all residents. It is funded by the AAO with the generous support of the AAO Insurance Company (AAOIC). For more information please contact the AAO.
