“BUILDING A BETTER PRACTICE IS GREAT, BUT DEVELOPING DEEP, LASTING RELATIONSHIPS WITH PEERS CAN BE EVEN MORE MEANINGFUL”
Graduate programs train orthodontists to be great technicians but don’t do much in the way of teaching real-world business and entrepreneurial skills. Every year, approximately 350 orthodontists graduate from residency programs, many with significant debt, and few with a true understanding of what they are about to face in the workplace.
OrthopreneursRD was designed to be a group where orthodontists (regardless of experience, background or treatment philosophy) can join together and work through many of the issues that create the greatest stress in their practice lives. The “RD” stands for “regional dominance” because every practice is awarded an exclusivity to grow in the group without competing doctors in their area.

Welcome to Your Tribe
There are lots of ways to make your practice better. You can read books, hire consultants, go to business programs, or just find out the hard way through trial and error. But let’s be honest; you signed up to be an orthodontist and with things like overhead, staffing, marketing and financial management, nobody told you how hard it would be to be a business owner.
The good news is that you’re not alone. Many of your peers feel the same way, which is why our tribe mentality is so effective. Everyone works together to avoid the common pitfalls of business ownership and increase our market share, all while developing better clinical skills and deep, lasting friendships. You’ll be in great company because the orthodontists in this group are great people and run great practices.
"IN A WORLD WHERE THE MAJORITY OF ORTHODONTISTS HAVE SOLO PRACTICES, THEY NO LONGER NEED TO BE ALONE."

Benefits of Joining OthopreneursRD
Our private OrthopreneursRD group will give you a platform where you can share challenges, connect with peers and get solutions for leadership, management, and business issues. Dr. Krieger is an active moderator who brings ideas to the group with regular frequency, so you’re sure to find group solutions to make your practice better.
While there will be a lot of sharing of ideas, there’s no homework. So, come and go as often as you like, knowing that this won’t add stress to your life. However, like anything else, the more you put in, the more you will surely get out, and the group succeeds when many are involved.
Remember that regional exclusivity means you’re the only one in your area with access to the practice pearls the group comes up with. Every member signs a non-disclosure agreement when they join the group so that everyone can feel comfortable sharing their best ideas knowing that they stay within the group.
With all of the great things this group has to offer, you can join for about the cost of one orthodontic case per year. If we do our job right, you should be able to recoup your investment many times over while you’re a member while finding an amazing new family of peers. There’s only one catch: There’s a regional exclusivity and your territory may already be spoken for.
The first step in the process is providing your practice addresses so that we can check to see if your region is available.
