Orthoease™,Ogden, Utah, a practice-management software provider for orthodontists, has announced that beginning January 15, 2008, practitioners can register for a chance to win a free practice-management software package. Orthodontists may register through March 7, 2008, and a single winner will be selected on March 28, 2008.

In addition to the free software package (which has an approximate value of $28,000), Orthodontic Management Solutions (OMS), a partner company of Orthoease, will provide a free consulting program to the winning practice. The program consists of one-on-one coaching for the orthodontist and his or her staff on ways to improve the practice’s efficiency, marketing, and revenue. The program, valued at $7,000, includes on-site consulting as well as an off-site orthodontic training workshop offered by Scarlett Thomas, president of OMS, at the Paradise Resort and Spa in San Diego.
