    I have heard that the future of orthodontics is bleek. Too many orthodontists in practice,too many general dentists doing orthodontics,and decreasing birth rate. I have also heard that the future of orthodontics is the brightest of any speciality. More people seeking orthodontic treatment especially adults, do to better dental insurance. Just wanted to know more info about this subject. Which ones true. ;)

    I would have to say that orthodontics

    probably has the best future behind perio

    and maybe endo too. Also i have noticed

    that many people have said u need to be

    in the top 5% in your class to get into

    ortho. That is totally incorrect. If u

    graduate top 25% with boards around 95

    you are a shoe in. If u are looking to go

    into ortho go to an academic school like

    Columbia or Penn, which usually match

    around 100% in ortho. :D
