Clear Aligner Excellence for Dentists and Their Teams, Part 1 Not sure which of our Ortho workshops is best for you? Use our quick Self-Assessment Tool to find your ideal fit.


Attendees will participate in an engaging and informative overview of orthodontics. We will revisit the important aspects of orthodontic tooth movement, occlusion, diagnosis, and treatment planning as it pertains to the restorative dental practice.

The course will also begin to introduce aligner therapy and the SureSmile® Aligner system to help the restorative dentist better understand how to best leverage aligner therapy in the restorative practice environment as well as when it is optimal to refer to an orthodontic specialist.

It is strongly recommended that our Orthodontics courses are taken in order and AT THE SAME TIME FOR CONTINUITY IN THOUGHT AND FLOW. This course is typically offered two days prior to our Clear Aligner Excellence for Dentists and Their Teams, Part 2 workshop, and this is why we encourage participants to attend the courses back-to-back as part of our Training to Treatment in 4 Days program.

Staff seating is limited and on a first come, first serve basis.
