It’s a fact, no one is more qualified to diagnose and treat dental irregularities & malocclusions than orthodontists. Yet, we see the market changing in front of our eyes.
Many of the orthodontists I speak with regularly say that every day they experience GP’s & Super Dentists doing more and more cases that they used to refer out to orthodontists.
What’s driving these changes?
- GP’s with more competition
- Newer GP’s are straddled with more dental school debt-They simply can’t afford to refer cases out of their practices and pay off their debt
- GP’s are experiencing more competition & decreasing salaries-There are more dentists coming out than ever before
- Corporate practice of dentistry is now over 20% of the market
The consequences are that GP’s are doing more orthodontic cases, decreasing referrals and cherry picking the easy cases all while increasing the more complicated cases that they are trying to do. They are “internet” or “weekend course” qualified to do so!
