Leaders in the Orthodontic Specialty

According to Gaidge, the leading provider of practice analysis metrics for orthodontists, KPIs (key performance indicators) reported by Schulman Group members always exceed the U.S. national average (from 2019):

  • Net Production – 22% higher

  • Net Collections – 26% greater

  • New Patient Starts – 15% more

  • Exams – 17% greater

Success through Sharing

Schulman members freely share practice management and clinical insights as they exercise “Excellence Through Sharing." It was this philosophy that attracted new Board member Dr. Sean Holliday. He attributes his personal and professional growth since joining the Schulman Group to his ability to request advice on clinical and non-clinical topics from other members, who are, as he says, “some of the sharpest minds in orthodontics.”

Collective Brainpower Of The Schulman Group

Justin Wedding, DMD, MS, a Schulman member who practices in Owensboro, Kentucky re-purposed the organization’s advice for office re-opening after closure from COVID-19 and shared it with referring dentists

“We have tried to be the “expert” on the EDL and PPP loans and shared our re-opening strategy with all of our referring dentists to help them sift through the craziness. I would never have had the knowledge on all of these things without the collective brainpower of the Schulman Group.”
