The Next Big Thing from The Aligner Intensive Fellowship

The Alumni have consistently asked us for some very specific help to fast track their ClinChecks.   Not only did we listen to exactly what you asked us for, but we worked hard to deliver it with LIVE access to us. It just keeps getting better and better with TAIF.  Watch our recorded event below to learn more.

Did you miss out on the LIVE event?

***There will not be any individual case review/mentorship on this forum, as given the amount of material and discussion required to comprehensively learn the content, there simply is not enough time. Drs. Moshiri and Nicozisis will show many comprehensive case examples, with a discussion of what the original case set-up was from Invisalign, and what was done to change the Clincheck to get the actual clinical outcome.
