Clear Aligner Excellence for Dentists and Their Teams, Part 2 Not sure which of our Ortho workshops is best for you? Use our quick Self-Assessment Tool to find your ideal fit.


This Part 2 continuation of "Clear Aligner Excellence for Dentists and Their Teams, Part 1" features a deeper education on clear aligners using the SureSmile® system to complete your full understanding of clear aligners.

Part 1 covered the dental considerations of orthodontics, and Part 2 will complete the story on the skeletal envelope of discrepancies and airway considerations within orthodontics unlocking even more opportunities for clear aligner treatment in the restorative environment. We will also skillfully engage digital technology and business principals unique to orthodontics to understand the science to case acceptance within the restorative environment. This team-based approach will help dental practices scale clear aligner therapy within their own practices and orthodontics across all their local orthodontic teams.

Our hands-on approach coupled with our didactic component for Part 2 will include selection and placement of attachments to express specific movements, identifying when and how to use IPR in aligner treatment planning, and reading the treatment timeline with regard to IPR, aligner templates, and attachments.  We will also forever change the aligner submission game and demystify IPR now that we have the strong foundation and understanding from Part 1.

The workshop will also address cases that need to be referred and how best to work with your specialist when a referral is warranted.

Participants are required to bring a laptop to this workshop.

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