Recognizing Clinical Excellence

Volume 50 : Number 3 : Page 0 : Mar 2016

We at JCO are proud to announce the winner of a new prize, the Eugene L. Gottlieb JCO Student of the Year Award, presented by American Orthodontics. The first recipient is Dr. Krystian Jarosz from Rutgers University, who distinguished himself in a wide field of competitors from orthodontic departments all over the country. He and the 11 other finalists are being profiled in installments on the JCO Facebook page, but Dr. Jarosz's interview appears in this issue as well, along with details of the selection process. We will also be honoring him during the upcoming AAO annual conference in Orlando, Florida. Suffice to say, the graduate orthodontic program at Rutgers has a lot to be proud of in Dr. Jarosz. Although his application and case materials were judged to be the "best" by my colleagues on the JCO editorial board, it was a very difficult decision to reach. It made me, as a senior clinician approaching the end of his career, thankful to see that the specialty is being inherited by such an excellent and worthy generation of upcoming clinicians.

2015 JCO Orthodontic Practice Study, Part 2 Practice Success

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).
