      Here I sit spending 12 whopping hours sitting in a hotel conference room. At least this all will be over in one day. Yes. 8 am-8pm. I sit here with a group of chiros who have minimal desire to improve or change. They are here just like I am, to check the box and fulfill the requirement. Some of these people have been in practice over 20 years, and continue to complain about the good ol’ days of getting $156 per visit from insurance. These are the people that destroyed insurance in CA, but guess what they’ve changed in their practice? Have they made changes to their practice to make things better? Nope. They’ve done nothing. They all want what is easy. They don’t desire to work to become excellent

      If you are on this forum, understand that makes you exceptional. Just by being part of it. If you contribute, regardless of where you are in the process, you are winning. If you are spending time on here learning, growing, or reviewing information, you are winning. If you are one of those lucky souls who are at level 1 this weekend you are winning. We can’t let up this quest for excellence. The more time and energy you commit, the better we all will become.

      When I first started ID, Dr. Brady would say that we are the 1% of the profession. I was like, “yeah, right!” (which is my default response to most things…I’ve said it a lot in my ID jouirney, and I’m working on this…) Don’t be afraid to ask questions that seem stupid, post your difficult cases, we are all trying to get better, and all comments are welcome. You will get better, and I will get better from your experience.

            Yes I agree, there 195,000 practicing dentists in the US. Every time I drive by one I wish it were a provider capable of helping people’s movement, and their current and future prognosis! If we all take one step to invite 5 colleagues to check out the new ID site structure what do we and our communities have to lose? To get something out of one of the ceu-fest days I bring my notes from a level or two, review and tune out the presenter are the most effective.
