How to Choose a Good Dentist for Invisalign Treatment
Check Dentist / Clinic’s Accreditations
Any dentist can be an Invisalign provider as long as he/she has completed the training course offered by Align Technology. Among the providers, they are further classified into 10 different tier levels (cases completed annually): Bronze (1), Silver (10), Gold I (20), Gold II (35), Platinum (50), Platinum Elite (80), Diamond (150), Black Diamond (400), Blue Diamond (750), Red Diamond (1000).
Hence, these accreditations are important as it means they not only have the skill set to treat malocclusion cases with Invisalign but also have been exposed to a wide variety of teeth alignment and straightening cases. Consequently, they are more likely to have treated cases similar to yours and will be in a better position to deliver optimal results.
Good things speak for themselves! Ask around and hear from your friends & relatives about their experience with certain clinics in order to make an informed decision. With over 25 years of experience, we have successfully delivered both braces and Invisalign treatments to more than 10,000 patients!
Check Clinic’s Location
Is the clinic accessible by public transport? Is there only one branch? The great thing about choosing clinics with multiple branches is that you have the flexibility to visit different locations to receive your treatment. Of course, this depends on your dentist’s schedules!
Check Clinic’s Operating Hours
The operating hours of a clinic are very important. It would be difficult to find time to visit your dentist if you are busy with work during office hours from Monday to Friday and yet the clinic does not offer evening or weekend appointments. If you manage to find a clinic that suits your timing, good for you! However, remember that these slots are limited and popular hence be sure to make an appointment in advance and as much as possible, try not to reschedule!
