To Dr John McDonald

I have a gauge of the same kind. On that one it says "DENTAL LIGA ZURICHER MODELL". The firm Dental Liga does not show any gauges on their website http://www.dentalliga.de/  but their e-mail adress is:  Info@dentalliga.de I hope this would help You.

Dear colleagues,

I have been in practice for five years. The orthodontist from whom I purchased my practice reviewed the staff annually and seemed to raise their hourly at this time. I have done the same and tried to base the adjustments on salary overhead. I am just curious how other people handle these matters with their staff as your practices and team grow. What is the range of percentage of collections that should go to staff salaries? I have heard around 21-24%.

ESCO members,

One of the challenges we have in our practice is with retainers after Phase I treatment. As the patients lose their deciduous teeth, the cuspids erupt, and the arch form changes the retainers, the retainers stop fitting. We don't seem to get enough mileage out of them and are redoing them too often. Any innovative designs or concepts out there?
