Frequently Asked Questions

We’re a team of world-leading dentists and educators.
If you don’t find an answer below please just contact us here.

What are the time commitments required?

We expect an average time commitment of approximately  2 hours per week, which can be roughly thought of as 1 “event” per week - whether that is a lecture, Q&A session, piece of theory work or a hands-on.

How do the hands-on days work exactly?

The hands-on days are designed to be highly intensive instructor-led practice sessions. You’ll be connected via a video platform with all of your fellow students and educators - either from home or from your clinic - working on a manikin head as we guide you through a series of tasks and activities, offering 1 to 1 feedback as we go.

How many students are in the Fellowship?

While we don’t have a hard limit on the number of students who can enrol, we do work on ratios of no more than 1:16 educators to students when we are doing instructor-led practice, so no matter how many students we end up with when the Fellowship kicks off you can be sure that you are getting the proper amount of interaction and feedback when it matters.

Who are the Fellowship educators?

We have educators from all over the world contributing to this Fellowship, all master dentists in their own right, bringing a great diversity of knowledge and experience with them.

What kind of equipment do I need?

The hands-on components for the courses will all be run using a custom made typodont in a manikin head, which will be provided by RipeGlobal.

You can use all of your own standard equipment from your clinic to do the actual work, or if you are wanting to set up from home we can also provide the air/water unit with hand-pieces.

You’ll also need access to a DSLR clinical camera, as this will be crucial for presenting your work.

How does this work online?

The Fellowship in Aligner Orthodontics is a comprehensive cloud-based training program which is brought to you entirely in your own home and clinic - no travel necessary.

The course delivery consists of a series of lectures and Q&A sessions which are delivered live via video platform, but which are also recorded and can be watched and re-watched later at your own convenience.

We will also be enrolling you into our community chat space, called CELXP Collaboration, where you’ll be connected with your fellow students, educators and support staff in a 24/7 live-chat environment. You can use this space to ask questions and get advice and feedback at any time, not just for Fellowship work but also with anything you might be dealing with in your practice that you’d like a second opinion on. CELXP Collaboration is also used as a general social community space for you all to get to know each other outside of being purely Fellowship focused, as it’s a long program and you’ll be seeing a lot of the same faces!

We will also be giving you some theory work and reading to do, as well as asking you to complete some quizzes and case presentations.

Finally, the linchpin that really brings it all together are the high-intensity instructor-led hands-on practice sessions in which all of the other learning will come together in that live practice environment.

Can I cancel at any time?

RipeGlobal hands-on courses are non-refundable. Should circumstances arise that make it difficult to continue with your enrolment in a Fellowship course we are committed to helping you work through any issues.

You can find more information about cancellation and deferment policies in our Terms & Conditions at

How does the CPD/CE component work?

CPD/CE credit will be issued at the end of each module.  A universal certificate is available for all countries.
