About the Program

As Clear Aligner therapy continues to grow as a practice builder, it's more important than ever to select cases properly and treat them as efficiently as possible. This course focuses on providing a better understanding of orthodontic diagnosis—a fundamental aspect of successful treatment planning. By emphasizing thorough diagnosis, participants can approach clear aligner cases with intentionality, leading to reduced treatment times and refinement needs. More importantly, we will review how to specifically treat what you diagnose and assess the complexity of each case. We will also review attachment design and other tips and tricks to enhance your Clin Checks. You should leave this course with systems that you can apply to your clear aligner treatment plans the very next day!


  1. Provide a short but complete approach to proper orthodontic diagnosis (diagnosis worksheet included)
  2. Categorize and assess orthodontic issues based on difficulty to treat with clear aligners.
  3. Provide clear, easy to apply systems to treat specific orthodontic issues.
