ClearCorrect and Progressive Orthodontic Seminars (POS) will offer Aligner+, a comprehensive clear aligner program with a 12-day education series, mentoring, and treatment planning system for general practitioners in North America.
Leveraging POS’s network of instructors, Aligner+ will teach the fundamentals of orthodontics and clear aligner therapy and improve participants’ ability to develop ClearCorrect treatment plans for patients, the companies report.
Open to all experience levels, participants will have access to experienced doctors for consultations on comprehensive diagnosis and treatment planning as well as ongoing support resources to ensure long-term success.
“Orthodontics is quickly becoming a field that general practitioners need to compete in to effectively grow their practices,” said Christophe Carsault, vice president of orthodontic and preventive sales at Straumann Group, ClearCorrect’s parent company.
“ClearCorrect’s partnership with POS will provide doctors with industry-leading knowledge and education programs that enhance their ability to treat more patients through clear aligner therapy,” Carsault said.
“As our industry continues to evolve, it’s crucial for general practitioners to have a comprehensive understanding of orthodontics to enable them to treat or refer their patients properly,” said Miles McGann, CEO of POS.
“Clear aligner therapies are an important part of that understanding, and we’re excited to partner with ClearCorrect to educate and prepare doctors to capitalize on the growth opportunities that clear aligners present,” said McGann.
Upcoming classes will be hosted in Orange County, California; Silicon Valley, California; Miami; Chicago; Houston; New York; Vancouver, British Columbia; and Toronto, with the ability to expand to other North American markets.
