Bob Keim: The Editor's Corner 

What Defines a Specialist?

Shortly after completing my graduate program in orthodontics, I was interviewed by an older orthodontist from my hometown who was looking for an associate to join his practice and eventually buy him out. This was a decision that was of tremendous importance and risk to both of us: he had his retirement on the line, and I had four kids to feed. Given the gravity of our discussion, we probably touched on every imaginable subject relative to the practice of orthodontics, just to make sure that we would be both personally and professionally compatible. Things were going relatively well until the older orthodontist began a diatribe about what he felt had killed the specialty. . . .
