Ron works tirelessly to continue the philosophy of Founder Bud Schulman of "Excellence Through Sharing." As the leader of this prestigious group of top-tier orthodontists, Ron's collaborative management style personally connects him to each Schulman member while always keeping an eye to the future. His special knowledge of technology has transcended all current standards and has led to a wide range of collaboration that benefits each Schulman member. Ron has known Bud Schulman since 1972. Ron's unique approach is rooted in a deep love and understanding of Bud Schulman's legacy and goals. We are grateful to Ron & Margaret for their endless hours of caring for the entire Schulman Group.

“It is with the heart that one sees rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”
—Antoine De Saint-Exupery
The Little Prince

"This quote describes Margaret Redmond, mother of three and grandmother of eight, one of the original spouse-members of the Schulman Group and my wise guide and inspiration.

Years ago when the Schulman group began, Bud encouraged the members to invite their spouses. Knowing Bud’s loving and dedicated wife, Jodi, she most likely led him to this vital consideration. Bud realized and fostered the rare and valuable contribution of the spouses’ intellectual and emotional intelligence.

Margaret believes, and I agree, that one of the main reasons for the Schulman Study Group’s wondrous success was Bud’s original action to include spouses in the annual meeting. Spouse attendance at the annual meeting, originally required, is now strongly recommended. Margaret Redmond’s deep caring and respect for Bud & Jodi Schulman’s mission to create a group of orthodontists who share abundantly is why I am able to serve as Bud Schulman’s successor. Margaret innately knew what would be involved in continuing the Schulman’s great legacy. Her vision, empathy, and understanding inspire me and have positively affected our Schulman Group and the orthodontic profession. On behalf of myself and the entire Schulman Group, we thank Margaret for her wisdom and profound understanding of the Schulman’s legacy which continues to inspire all of us."
—Ron Redmond
