 Imagine What Is Possible...Then Make It a Reality!

To have the practice of your dreams requires that you first establish your vision.  The second key is to develop systems that make your vision possible.  Third, you must surround yourself with a team that will live and believe in your vision. Dr. Sellke will share real world experiences and provide practical solutions to many of the challenges that face today's orthodontists.  He will highlight maximizing clinical efficiency while simultaneously improving quality, increasing case acceptance, marketing, scheduling, and staff development/retention.  This high intensity, fast paced one-day program will help you develop a plan for achieving your vision for your practice and balance in your life.  This program is not just for "dreamers"!  It is designed for doctors and staff who are willing to pull the trigger to take the practice to the highest level of personal and professional satisfaction.  Fasten your seatbelts...This program will move you!

Some of the topics covered include:

  • Attracting Patients in a Changing World
  • Converting & Keeping New Exams, The One Step Exam/Cons
  • Scheduling That Really Works
  • Hiring, Training, and Retaining Great Staff
 
Terry Sellke, DDS, MS opened his orthodontic specialty practice in 1974.  He and his partner, Don Reily, have been in private practice in Lake County since that time with offices in Antioch, Grayslake, and Wonder Lake.  They continue to run a highly efficient, patient-centered practice.  Practicing Bioprogressive orthodontics, they understood the benefits and used low forces long before passive self-ligation was developed.  They relentlessly look at the practice with an eye toward maximizing productivity, applying basic business principles that allow them to treat patients to exceptional results in shorter appointments, fewer appointments, and fewer months while still running on time-every moment of every day in a stress free environment.
 
In 1983 Terry became a Diplomat of the American Board of Orthodontics.  He began teaching orthodontics and business principles at the University of Illinois at Chicago in 1970.  He retired as clinical professor, co-clinic director, and master's thesis advisor at UIC in 2006. Terry continues to teach practice management (The Bottom Line® program) and clinical orthodontics to orthodontists globally.  He currently has a number of prospective clinical studies under way in his office that his retirement has freed the time to accomplish.  Terry has published dozens of articles on orthodontics in professional journals worldwide.  His text on the Bioprogressive Orthodontic Philosophy has been translated into four languages.  Terry was a Journal Reviewer for AJODO for over 18 years.
