How did this program come to be?

Our position as lecturers for 3M Unitek’s Bottom Line® University Program and 3M Unitek’s Annual Regional Summit meetings has put us in front of all of the orthodontic residents in the country since 1997. Over the years, the residents continually asked us if we knew of any practices for sale or if any Associate positions were available in a particular state. Finally, we decided to create a list of all of those orthodontic residents, where they wanted to practice and what type of transition they were interested in. With that, our Free Practice Matching Assistance Program was born.
