Volume 49 : Number 11 : Page 685 : Nov 2015

Last month, the first article in this three-part report on the 2015 JCO Orthodontic Practice Study covered trends in the economics and administration of U.S. orthodontic practices since our first biennial survey in 1981. It also described the methodology used in this Study, the second to be conducted online. The full set of tables and the survey questionnaire are available to JCO subscribers in the Online Archive at www.jco-online.com; select the contents for the October 2015 issue and click on "Complete Tables". Part 2 will highlight a number of factors that appear related to practice success in terms of net income and case starts. For tests of statistical significance, we chose a significance level ("p") of .01, instead of the more usual .05, because the high number of variables in the Study increases the possibility that the results could be affected by chance. Any annual figures reported in the tables refer to the preceding calendar year (in this case, 2014).
