  • Net Collections – 26% greater

  • New Patient Starts – 15% more

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. 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.”

Leading the Way


Justin Wedding, DMD, MS, a Schulman member from Owensboro, Kentucky re-purposed the organization’s advice for office re-opening and shared it with referring dentists. “We tried to ‘be the expert’ on the EIDL and PPP loans 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.”

Members continue to “run their own shops,” emphasizes Robert James Bray, DDS, MS, the Schulman Group’s chairman and CEO. “We fully support each member’s commitment to doing the best job they can, to do the job as they see fit, and do it efficiently.”

Since the Schulman Group became a DSO, more than 20 new orthodontists have become members. The organization continues to grow, offering an impressive suite of unique membership benefits. The Schulman Group makes it possible for each member “…to be an excellent clinician and an excellent businessperson,” Dr. Bray observes.
