If you are looking to undergo orthodontic treatment using Invisalign, you should know that not all dentists and orthodontists are able to offer Invisalign as a service. The reason for this is that you need to receive extra training in order to be able to offer Invisalign.
The first step in becoming an Invisalign dentist is to register for the Invisalign provider course. This can be done either over the phone or on the Invisalign website. When you attend the provider course, you will be taught how to submit the X-rays, photographs, and impressions that will need to be taken and sent to Invisalign for each patient. You will also be sent a Getting Started Kit that will contain all the necessary information for beginning your first Invisalign treatment.
Dentists who have earned a high level of experience in treating patients with Invisalign can become an Invisalign Preferred Provider. The two levels of Preferred Provider are Premier Preferred and Elite Preferred Providers. On the Invisalign website, they have a directory of Providers and Preferred Providers that can be searched by zip code.
