dreamstime survey_optBentson Clark & Copple, Greensboro, NC, is conducting its annual nationwide survey of current orthodontic residents.

The 18-question survey asks about the current status of orthodontic residents, their future plans, and their overall orthodontic practice search. Sample questions include “What are your plans after completing your orthodontic program”; “What is your expectation of first year annual compensation”; and “How would you rate your orthodontic program in preparing you for the business aspects of owning a practice?”

The official survey results will be published in the fourth-quarter edition of the Bentson Clark reSource, the company’s fee-based quarterly newsletter.
