The Six Month Smiles® (6MS) guided orthodontic system equips you with the knowledge and confidence needed to start treating your patients with aligners.
The first step to becoming a Six Month Smiles® Provider is to register for our seminar. After your training, you'll leave with the ability and confidence to start cases immediately.
Included with this Seminar are:
The 1-day aligner course is devoted exclusively to aligner treatment and techniques, and has hands-on exercises that are more pertinent to aligner therapy. This course does not cover how to treat patients with clear braces. If you just want to incorporate aligner therapy in your practice, this course is ideal for you.
The Six Month Smiles Aligner Seminar is more than just a 1-Day seminar that teaches you how to treat patients with Aligners. It's a gateway to greater things:
The 2-day Level 1 course covers Six Month Smiles treatment philosophy, short-term orthodontic principles with a greater emphasis on the mechanics of fixed appliances. Aligner therapy is additionally covered, as a sub-section of the 2-day course. Attending the Level 1 course may be better for you if:
Correspondingly, the 1-Day Aligner Course may be right for you, if:
Our Aligners are ideal for patients with mild to moderate crowding (7-10 mm) and spaced cases (5-7 mm). We cannot actively address open/deep bites but some improvement will occur due to relative intrusion/ extrusion. Similarly, crossbites (anterior only) may only be corrected if the roots are favorably positioned.
This product includes a maximum of 20 active Aligners/arch + 2 refinements. If an Aligner outcome is possible, we will show you a 360º simulation and, if necessary, recommend Clear Braces and Mixed Appliance options (Braces on one arch, or Braces on both arches).
After completing our 1-day Aligner Seminar you will be able to start treating your patients with our Invisible Aligners and Relapse Aligners. If you are interested in treating your patients with our Clear Braces or Mixed Appliances (Invisible Aligners on the top arch and Clear Braces on the lower arch) you would need to complete our 2-Day Level 1 Seminar.
Six Month Smiles provides faster treatment times (average of 6-10 months), with either Aligners or Braces, depending upon case complexity. We will demonstrate how much movement is achieved with Aligners, enabling patients and dentists to make informed decisions on selecting Aligners or Braces. Our ability to move teeth fast is enhanced by our digital analysis expertise and the selection of the right appliance for each case.
We offer realistic treatment plans that will result in fewer refinements for each case. Our treatment plans are developed by orthodontists, not machines or technicians. If Aligner treatment isn’t the best solution for your patient, our CONFIDEX™ treatment planners will advise you of Clear Braces and mixed appliance options.
Yes, at our 2-Day Level 1 Seminar you will learn how to treat patients with both our Invisible Aligners and Clear Braces, as well as Mixed Appliances (Invisible Aligners on the top arch and Clear Braces on the bottom arch).
If you are a Six Month Smiles Provider who has already completed our 2-Day Level 1 Seminar, it isn't required for you to attend this Aligners Seminar to begin treating your patients with aligners. You already have the short-term orthodontic principles learned from our Level 1 Seminar.
We do highly encourage and recommend you to view the Aligner training videos that are available on the Provider Resource Center or Case Portal before beginning treatment with our Aligners. As always, if you have additional questions, please feel free to chat with us or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our reattend for free policy applies only to our 2-Day Level 1 Seminars and doesn't apply to our 1-Day Aligner Seminars. If you are interested in learning more about aligners, please log into the Provider Resource Center, where we have a multitude of training videos and resources for you to view. If you have additional questions, please feel free to post them to our Online Forum (also available within the Provider Resource Center), or contact us at email@example.com with any questions you may have.
