This Fellowship will be facilitated through a private online platform led and moderated by Drs. Moshiri and Nicozisis where they will teach and review all of their intellectual property on delivering aligner therapy. Think of it as a live and dynamic textbook at your fingertips, in the comfort of your home, office, or mobile device, without traveling.

You do not have to be present and in front of a computer at a certain time to participate. Rather, you can view the recordings at your leisure throughout the week. You can review previous weeks’ content and discussion at any time.

All content will be delivered as outlined below and is released by passing a check for understanding before moving on.  You can review concepts supplemented with case examples, including the opportunity for discussion and dialogue on each topic. After the 4-month course, the “graduates” will remain in the community study group to continue to learn and participate with their fellow graduates/peers to further review cases with the all-new 2.0 concepts. New content will be delivered as it becomes relevant (i.e., new developments with aligner therapy, etc.) by Drs. Moshiri and Nicozisis, but not on a formal basis as with the initial course.

Based on the consistent feedback from previously surveyed Fellowship Alumni, we now have live treatment planning support during the course for the first time! Via a collaboration with Align’s Invisalign Pro team, we have support from a dedicated group of clinical advisors, allowing live treatment planning assistance to facilitate the learning process. This group of advisors responsible for the Fellowship is specific to our course and familiar with the biomechanic philosophies we impart during the lectures. This is an incredible adjunct to have besides the didactic information. Please note this support from Invisalign Pro is currently only available for orthodontists in North America.

Course Prerequisites: Participants are expected to comprehensively understand orthodontic biomechanics with at least two years of full-time orthodontic practice and advanced training.

Teaching methods: Online Video Lectures, Online ClinCheck Case Setup Videos, Downloadable Written Articles and Supporting Handouts, Virtual Group Discussions 

Course Duration: 17 weeks with continued access to the content and community discussion areas

Total Video Duration: 28 Hours

CE Credits: Innovator Ortho designates this product training activity for 25 self-paced learning continuing education credits* CE is delivered in a joint provider arrangement with Innovator Ortho AGD PACE Provider #420399

What People Are Saying:

The Fellowship made me so much more secure, I now modify my Clinchecks with an understanding of exactly what I'm doing. I'm so much more secure speaking with patients about treatment mechanics when they ask. (I have a few engineers that are always eager to know!) But mostly I feel I can offer it to so many different patients now, not just easy cases.

A true "course" on par to a residency course in terms of comprehensive nature, organization, and course objectives.

You gave me the brain power to achieve amazing results and showed me your amazing results. This class was amazing!!!
