Super-Easy, In-House Orthodontic Aligners

Educational Objectives

  • Compare the cost and time savings that can be achieved by producing aligners in-house 
  • Identify which equipment and materials are needed for aligner production
  • Decribe the complete workflow—from scanning, designing, 3D printing, and manufacturing—and how these steps can be delegated to staff

Abstract

You love aligner orthodontics, but are you concerned about the high lab fees that most popular companies charge? With in-house 3D printing, you can stop paying those fees and gain more independence and control over manufacturing (and tooth movement). Most professionals believe this process is too labor intensive, but it actually isn’t.

Dr. Joshua Howard will show you how easy it is to produce quality aligners with digital scanning and in-house 3D printing. He’ll show you how to delegate steps to dental assistants and how to get your whole dental team on board with a digital workflow. By the end of the webinar, you’ll know the proper equipment, materials, and techniques you need to be successful.
