There is a running debate...
Are clear aligners orthodontics or simply a cosmetic appliance?
Miles McGann, CEO of Progressive Orthodontics chimes in:
Dr. David Dana, Educational Director of Progressive Orthodontics, adds:
"Aligners, being an orthodontic appliance, require orthodontic knowledge behind them in order to properly design the appliance that fits the patient's malocclusion correctly...so at the end of the treatment we have a successful finish."
At Progressive Orthodontics, we believe that all orthodontic patients (including those that use clear aligners), deserve to have good results to the standard of orthodontic care.
Good care starts with knowledge.
If you're interested in improving your clear aligner care and getting support from experienced doctors, we have designed a comprehensive 12-day Aligner+ series to ensure your success on every case. This program was announced earlier this year. Courses are available throughout the US, Canada, Europe, Asia, and Australia and has already sold out in a few locations.
