Course Description:

The course will be broken into two parts. The first part will talk about moving teeth with plastic and the strategies to get around the hurdles typically associated with aligner therapy. Hands-on  will reinforce these lessons. Participants may bring cases from their private practice for discussion and treatment planning purpose. There will be a thorough discussion on technology, to gain a full understanding of how scanning and 3D printing work. We will also discuss some of
the issues that now plague dentists as a result of the direct-to-the-consumer business model. We will thoroughly cover how a digital workflow affects your office. Most importantly, we will discuss and demonstrate a full end-to-end solution where we will build an entire case of aligners to manage specific malocclusion issues.

Course Objectives:

Each participant will learn:
1. Understand the digital workflow from consult  to delivery.
2. 3D printing will be explained and demonstrated.
3. The economics of inhouse printing will be  discussed.
4. Learn how to plan, design and hand build an  Essix retainer
5. Learn an end-to-end solution for delivering  inhouse clear aligners.
