We’re back for our final installment of our 3-part video series with practice consultant Roger P. Levin, DDS, of Levin Group, on orthodontic practice recovery amid COVID-19. The pandemic has wreaked havoc on orthodontic practices—most practices will experience a significant financial downturn as a result of office closures and reduced patient appointments once they reopen. To help orthodontists manage their practice’s turnaround and recovery, Levin breaks down the 20 strategies he has developed in recent weeks.

Thus, his strategies touch on everything from communication with patients and referring doctors and marketing to case management, patient financing, and staff management. OP
