Running your Practice Like a Business w Dr. David Boschken

In the ever-evolving field of orthodontics, there are trailblazers who continuously push the boundaries. Our spotlight shines on a remarkable innovator who has redefined the field through technology and patient-centric care.

Based in Silicon Valley, California, Dr. David Boschken stands out as a forward-thinking figure with over two decades of experience at the forefront of orthodontic innovation. During the nascent stages of Invisalign’s growth, he was among the first orthodontists to embrace this technology and incorporate it into his practice. 

Our conversation traces Dr. Boschken’s trajectory from an early adopter to a faculty member for Align, a journey marked by his passion for educating fellow orthodontists about Invisalign’s immense potential. Through his enlightening lectures, he paved the way for a paradigm shift, enabling peers to grasp the benefits and techniques of this revolutionary approach.

His practice reached 98% clear aligners back in 2015, in addition to a fully digital experience leveraging technology such as Light Force and iTero. This shift not only streamlined operations but also enhanced patient satisfaction.

In this episode, we plunge into an enthralling dialogue with Dr. Boschken, where we peel back the layers to uncover an often-overlooked facet of orthodontic practice – the business angle. We unravel the enigma of scalability and delve into the key performance indicators (KPIs) that should rightfully share the spotlight with clinical excellence.

Join us in exploring the uncharted territories of orthodontics, where innovation, patient care, and business acumen intersect.
