We know our courses work. If you fully commit, complete all program requirements, and meet required standards, you can expect to:*

  1. Learn how to solve complex malocclusions such as severe crowding, open bite, deep bite, cross bite, full Class II and Class III with aligners.
  2. Incorporate orthodontic principles such as anchorage and reciprocal forces into an aligner treatment plan to get predictable outcomes.
  3. Excel at finishing touches by being able to do enameloplasty, gingivectomy and simple edge bonding to take a smile from an 8 to a 10-out-of-10.

Key learning outcomes:

  • Use temporary anchorage devices to overcome aligner limitations in a full Class II or in a transverse deficient maxilla.
  • Improve your patient’s health beyond the oral cavity by understanding your role in the management of Sleep-Related Breathing Disorders and administering treatment accordingly.
  • Be self-sufficient in making changes in the digital treatment plan to increase the predictability of the clinical outcome.

Key performance outcomes:

  • Fewer refinements to achieve optimal results.
  • Increase production through less chair time per treatment while opening up new resources to treat more patients.
  • Have effective consultation appointments, helping patients achieve better health.
  • Create a unique selling proposition by offering non-surgical gummy smile treatment.
  • Reduce the amount of time you need to invest in each digital treatment plan until it is ready for approval by being self-sufficient in making changes that increase predictability.


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: Orthodontic Software Skills, Biomechanics, TAD’s (mini-screws) and more.

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

Three 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 training sessions.

Please see the hands-on session details below:

Hands-On #1: Align Teeth in the Software | (5 hour LIVE session)

Hands-On Training #2: Mini-Screws | (5 hour LIVE session)

Hands-On Training #3: Shape of Teeth | (5 hour LIVE session)

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. This enables you to learn and improve your quality of work at a faster rate.


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

They will cover the following:

  • Moderate Malocclusion
  • Severe Malocclusion
