  1. So it’s all about return on investment. What could individual orthodontists have done with the annual dues assessment for the consumer awareness program? I’ll give an example. I have 2 children and I am saving in a 529 college fund for them. I recollect that the CAP assessment goes back to 2006 and maybe it was initiated before that.
    Let’s say that over the past 11 years you were assess $500 per annum for the CAP. How many new patients were driven to your office from the CAP program?
    What if you had invested the money in a 529 fund? A simple investment calculator demonstrates that a $500 investment for 11 years at 8.78% return (my fund performance) would have ended with a value of $9439. Not too shabby.
    If I was an investor in the CAP, I’d fire my broker!
    Can’t say I didn’t warn them (in 2006)!
