The purpose and benefit of the geographic exclusivity is to allow for open and honest discussion much deeper than other forums. Without you having geographic exclusivity to your area there is no way to assure that what you post isn’t read by a direct competitor, even if they currently aren’t a member of that forum, as they could join in the future and read archives. Post carefully in non-exclusive groups. Information learned in our group is for members of the group only and not to be shared in anyway with anyone outside of the group. Failure to do this will result in removal from the group. Active participation is also expected by the members. A member's risks loss of membership if significant lack of participation is noted.
Note: New membership is exclusive to orthodontists who are practice owners.
