2024 — appreci-8 your potential

Lisa Moler says that in numerology, all the numbers in 2024 add up to it being a good year to reach your potential, both personally and professionally.

Numerology is the study of numbers that deal with their mystical meaning and effect on our lives. When you think of all of the numbers that surround us every day — our dates of birth, other special dates, births, anniversaries, and deaths of those near and dear to us, even your home address can have a deeper meaning. No better time to think about the power of numbers than this year. Add up the numbers in our new year, 2024, and the result is the number 8. Turn the number 8 on its side, and you get the infinity symbol — this year, you can harness the power of 8 — when opportunities to reach goals in our personal and private lives can be limitless.

A little numerology research on the number 8 shows that it represents the achiever and goal-reacher. The number symbolizes good sense, a powerful presence, and strong success drive. Balance is also a hallmark of the number 8, as reflected in its symmetrical shape that promotes stability, potential, and productivity. The number 8 is ruled by the planet Saturn (as is the zodiac sign, Capricorn). Traits of this planet are perseverance and ambition, so during 2024, our “8” year, we should strive to find our places as strong leaders ready to transform our plans and words into actions.

For this Spring 2024 issue, we want to help turn your plans into prosperity with our clinical articles and marketing expertise. In our Cover Story, Dr. Mike Ragan talks about the AI-powered remote monitoring solution DentalMonitoring and how dynamic scheduling and remote monitoring are driving growth and reducing doctor days for his practice. Our CE on AI in dentistry by Dr. Aaron Glick and colleagues, points out the pros and cons of having AI-based systems in the orthodontic practice. Dr. Gunson’s CE, “Shut your mouth and save your life: the problem with interlabial gap” looks at the history of effective lip closure and how lip incompetence can affect the bite, the face, and airway. Check out the AAO Special Section to discover products and services that bring your practices to a higher level, increase your clinical success, and even protect your data from cyberattacks.

What can you do to make the most of your “8” year? Keep achieving, be strategic, and fiercely tenacious. Be a leader, but listen to your team, and let them know that the most fulfilling achievements are the ones that you reach together. Give back when you can because the karma of the number 8 is connected to the infinite balance between success and gratitude. And remember like the balanced number 8, to make time for personal life, even while you pursue professional success. 2024 is the year to turn your potential into prosperity.

With appreci-8-tion for success in 2024,
