Course Outline Overview



On-demand Lectures

This course uses a series of lectures curated by world-class orthodontists and dentists in the aligner sphere so you can maximize your learning and get the most out of your hands-on sessions. These lectures cover: Treatment Planning, Orthodontic Software Skills, and Biomechanics.

Fail-Fast Learning

We use pre-theory challenges to get the most out of your live hands-on sessions. These challenges cover aligning the teeth in the software and orthodontic mini-screws.


From the second you start, you will have 24/7 access to a tight-knit community of like-minded dentists, including peers and educators. Here, you can ask questions, discuss issues, receive and give advice, etc. You’ll get a range of educators and current and past peers of all levels responding and uplifting you.

Hands-on Simulation Training

Two hands-on sessions in this course will have you utilize your simulation kit to replicate a procedure on the manikin. You’ll receive live feedback from an educator in these sessions. Please see the hands-on session details below:

Hands-On #1: Align Teeth in the Software

Hands-On Training #2: Mini-Screws

Case Guidance and Presentations

Mentorship is an integral part of your learning process, which is why we have our educators give case guidance. Every two weeks, an educator will provide feedback on cases submitted in a live session. 


Three case presentations allow you to present your treatment to one of your patients.

They will cover the following:

  • Simple Class I Malocclusion
  • Moderate Complexity Class I Malocclusion
