JSOP Grad Testimonials

Richard Portalupi, DDS, MSD

"Taking Dr. Roncone’s JSOP course was one of the top two or three best career decisions I have made in my 25 years as an orthodontist. My only regret is that I had not done so earlier in my career."

"JSOP offers several ways that orthodontists can work more efficiently, treating cases in less visits and less time, (without compromising quality), and as a result increasing profitability and reducing stress. Dr. Roncone’s JSOP course has evolved with the changes in the economic challenges of our field, and offers practical and effective solutions, efficient mechanics, and real fixes for reducing inefficiencies such as loose brackets, pokey wires, and much more.

The principles of JSOP can be applied to most bracket systems and mechanical techniques, but I have found the Forestadent system to be far superior, and I have found the JSOP mechanics to be extremely effective.

I highly recommend the JSOP course without reservation, and welcome any orthodontist to contact me if they wish."

Matthew J. Peluso, DMD

"He then showed me how to use this information to implement changes that made my practice more efficient. Using the information from the course, I was able to improve my scheduling and also plan the layout for my new office to achieve greater efficiency. The information that you learn will forever change the way you practice orthodontics and will give you much needed guidance on how to run an office. Thank you Dr. Roncone."

"Because of JSOP, I have a different perspective on how to measure my company’s performance, assess problems, and react accordingly. Dr. Roncone’s JSOP takes Dr. Roncone’s unique insight to achieve clinical efficiency and blends it with a comprehensive M.B.A. program. It truly has life-changing potential and will cost you more money to not take the JSOP course!"

"In the last 3 decades of practicing orthodontics I have had the privilege of hearing and knowing some of great orthodontists of our time. I have learned from each of these doctors the art and science of orthodontics and applied it to my practice."

"For over 30 years I have mounted cases and been a student of occlusion.

My motivation has been to provide the highest degree of care for my patients. I heard Dr. Roncone at a meeting in 2005 and recognized that he had an exceptional grasp of the complete practice of orthodontics. In a highly organized manner he introduced his audience to his '17 Critical Factors' of an orthodontic practice. This comprehensive tool which provides a detailed and systematic evaluation of the complete practice interested me, so I signed up for his 'Just Short of Perfect' course and was not disappointed. His perspective added to my previous knowledge base and expanded it in ways that made my practice run smoother, more efficiently and with more consistent and better results. Since the year long course covers such a great amount of information I have returned to take the course again. This has allowed me to take my practice to a new level.

Dr. Roncone is absolutely committed to the practice and teaching of orthodontics. He has put his full force and intellect behind this profession throughout his career and organized a course that can be assimilated by any orthodontist seeking knowledge and a better way to practice. I highly recommend Dr. Roncone’s JSOP course. If you take this course and use his concepts, you will have a new life in your practice!"

The course will also teach you how to solve problems by using metrics to objectively analyze them and measure the effects of implemented solutions to ensure that effective systems are in place.

Additionally, the written materials provided in the course and Dr. Roncone’s accessibility and willingness to continue to share his expertise is very much appreciated. After attending the course, you feel like you are a part of a very special community of orthodontists.
