Understanding how to get the best results from your chosen clear aligner product and being able to differentiate your practice by offering a positive patient experience, are increasingly important considerations for providers of teeth straightening products.
Partnering with the Invisalign system by becoming an Invisalign provider uncovers a wide range of benefits for your practice. Not only do you benefit from offering clear aligners that are based on more than 20 years of innovation and are designed to treat all types of malocclusions, but you also have access to in-depth educational resources to help you take your practice to the next level.
The Invisalign system builds your clinical proficiency through a comprehensive onboarding process, which includes online and in-person courses, a host of training materials, and continuing education opportunities to enhance your clinical knowledge – helping you to position your practice for success now, and as you continue to evolve your offering in the future.
If you decide to become an Invisalign provider the first step of your Invisalign journey starts with undertaking an Invisalign training course – either the Invisalign Go course, for dentists with little to no teeth straightening experience, or the Invisalign Fundamentals course, for those who have confidence in treating orthodontic cases. These courses are targeted to your level of orthodontic knowledge and experience and provide the necessary support to start treating with the Invisalign system, with confidence.
Once trained, you have access to an ongoing program of clinical education led by experienced Invisalign Providers as well as access to the Invisalign Doctor Site (IDS). IDS is a centralised resource for Invisalign providers, bringing together a Global Gallery showcasing completed Invisalign cases and the Align Education portal featuring clinical papers, educational videos and webinar recordings designed to enhance your knowledge of clinical conditions, digital treatment planning, workflow and practice management, and the iTero intraoral scanner. In recognition of the fact that learning doesn’t stop with the doctor, IDS also features a Practice Resources section that offers eLearning modules designed for practice staff, to help them to talk confidently about Invisalign treatment to patients and improve the patient experience.
The Invisalign brand has always been committed to driving consumers into the practices of Invisalign providers through ongoing advertising campaigns, but the company has taken this a step further with its “Be Clear on the Facts” campaign. The campaign aims to educate consumers as they consider orthodontic treatment, by helping potential patients understand the benefits of undertaking an in-person examination with a registered specialist orthodontist or dentist before they commence any teeth straightening. In addition to continued messaging across mainstream and social media, resources for practices have also been made available, to facilitate communication of a consistent message at the practice level.
By choosing the Invisalign system you can be confident in knowing that you will benefit from ongoing innovation, not only in terms of clear aligner product features and digital patient engagement tools, but also a comprehensive portfolio of educational support, helping you to strengthen your practice for the future.
