    The Truth About Mental Health Crisis in Orthodontics | 5 Minute Friday

    The Truth About Mental Health Crisis in Orthodontics | 5 Minute Friday

    There's something going on in Orthodontics today that wasn't going on 10 or 20 years ago.

    Let's be honest….

    Running a practice is much tougher today. Finding good team members is a challenge, and leading culturally can be difficult because millennials and Gen Z are different from older generations.

    These are just some of the problems we are facing that inevitably will lead to stress and burnout.

    Now more than ever, we need to take better care of ourselves. We need to take deliberate steps to improve our mental well-being and lead less stressful lives.

    Tune in to this 5-minute episode to learn more about taking better care of yourself.

    Key Takeaways
    What's going on in orthodontics (00:35)
    Life is getting tougher (01:21)
    A lot of Orthodontists don't really love what they're doing (02:09)
    Focus on your mental health (04:02)
    Find somebody you can talk to (04:53)

    Why Choose Invisalign w/ Dr. Jonathan Nicozisis

    Why Choose Invisalign w/ Dr. Jonathan Nicozisis

    In this episode, we have a two-time returning champion, Dr. Jonathan Nicozisis. He has practiced orthodontics for over 23 years in Princeton, New Jersey, as his primary location and a second location in West Windsor, New Jersey. 

    In addition to his private practice, he is an educator and lecturer who teaches internationally about new technologies and improvements of Invisalign. He is a member of the Invisalign National Speaker Bureau and Clinical Research Network. 

    In this conversation, we talk about aligners and why he considers Invisalign head and shoulders above the others. 

    One of the reasons he shares is that the Align technology is constantly being upgraded, and new features coming onboard. These serve to improve the digital workflow and treatment planning. 

    Align is also supporting the orthodontic specialty, unlike any other vendor in the market today, by sponsoring future generations of orthodontists in residency programs through research grants and increasing the number of cases a resident can treat. 

    Tune in to this episode to learn about Invisalign and other products from Align Technology.

    Key Takeaways
    - Why Invisalign (06:45)
    - Improving the digital workflow and treatment planning (08:22)
    - Personalized treatment planning with Align (14:25)
    - In-House Aligners vs. Invisalign: Which is better? (17:06)
    - The power of Invisalign marketing (24:27)
    - Bells and whistles in the Invisalign ecosystem (28:39)
    - How Align is supporting future generations of orthodontists (30:10)
    - There are multiple treatment modalities but only one correct diagnosis (34:58)

Transformative Resource

I’m not sure why it took me so long to write a 5-Star review of Glenn’s OP Podcast. I began listening to it and 5-min Fridays several years ago when all the various orthodontic podcasts where competing for our attention. There is no question that the OrthoPreneurs Podcast stands head and shoulders above the rest in its ability to transform your practice and personal life….if you are willing to commit to making the necessary changes and have the courage to act upon the ideas described by Glenn and his guests. This podcast was a game-changer in my practice’s productivity, my outlook for my professional future and my preparation for retirement. It has taught me how to better enjoy the time I have with family and friends, knowing that my professional life is well-managed. I would recommend this podcast for all orthodontists, dentists and even non-dental entrepreneurs looking to be more productive, a better leader and live a more satisfied life.
