Orthodontists

The U.S. Department of Labor predicts that employment for orthodontists will grow faster than the average for all careers through 2022. Since our society values physical attractiveness, the motivation to receive orthodontic treatment can be cosmetic in nature, and demand for these services should continue to be strong. But because orthodontics is largely an optional procedure, poor economic conditions can reduce the number of people who can afford to get braces. Patients without solid income are not likely to pursue or follow through with orthodontic treatment. However, to make the service more accessible, many offices provide financing, accept credit cards, or refer the patient to financing sources where instant, over-the-phone approval may be obtainable.
