What Docs are Saying About This Course:

As amazing as the 1.0 course was, 2.0 was EVEN BETTER. The new lecturers really added fresh perspective. This course should be the bare minimum certification course and NOT OPTIONAL before someone uses Invisalign.

Dr. DeFelice

Amazing course, glad I finally took it as it has significantly increased my understanding of how to better setup my Invisalign cases and look at the ClinChecks in a different perspective than I had before the course.

Dr. Croft

This is my second time taking the course, and I appreciated the updated content. You can never see enough Invisalign ClinChecks to understand the nuances of how different cases should best be treated.
