Clear aligner treatment is more than just delivering plastic. The aligners are a force delivery system that now leverages technological advances that improve their efficiency and effectiveness. Beyond the plastic, advancements in software, digital workflows, 3D imaging, 3D printing, machine learning and artificial intelligence are key components to today’s clear aligner systems. In this presentation, Dr. Holliday will review the journey of clear aligner therapy and how an orthodontic practice can successfully implement this technology to improve patient outcomes, the patient experience and practice growth.

Learning Objectives:

  • Successfully integrate digital workflows in an orthodontic practice.
  • Identify the advances and techniques for predictable clear aligner treatment.
  • Implement technology in an efficient and effective way.

Following Dr. Holliday's lecture, join him for an informative Q&A session on technological advances in today’s clear aligner systems, moderated by Dr. Jasmine Gorton, DMD, MS. We will recap significant key takeaways that will afford attendees an opportunity to evaluate and integrate clear aligner technologies in practice.

Learning Objectives:

  • Attendees will understand the dynamic growth of the clear aligner technologies in orthodontic treatment.
  • Doctors will better understand the impact of digital technology that will shape the future of the profession for the next 10 years.
