“Never before have we been able to instantaneously put our collective heads together and face any problem with such an amazing crowd-sourced brain trust.” - Dr. David Butler, DMD, MS

Dr. Butler of Parkinson+Butler Orthodontics, recently sat down with The Progressive Orthodontist magazine to discuss his role in the creation of The Orthodontic Exchange Study Group (OrthoExchange) by leveraging Facebook and how OrthoExchange has now transformed the way orthodontists communicate, network and share insight with each other.

While attending an annual orthodontic conference towards the end of his residency, Dr. Butler was surprised by the lack of communication amongst practicing orthodontists, observing that outside of annual meetings, there were very few opportunities available for fellow orthodontists to gather in one place to build relationships, and share insights on how improve their business and patient care.

Dr. Butler, noting the familiar structure and social nature of Facebook, found it to be the perfect format for what he was looking to create; a highly engaged group of top performing orthodontists from around the country sharing with each other how best to care for their patients and community.

Since establishing OrthoExchange, Dr. Butler has been a part of creating, and participating in, numerous other study groups, improving the standard of care for hundreds of thousands of patients across the country.
