Complete Aligner Planning Support (CAPS) is a brand new initiative from the world-leading Orthodontic training institute, OrthoED. CAPS provides you, the dentist, with an unrivalled support system to plan, track and finish more aligner cases with complete confidence, predictable tooth movement and excellent clinical results while reducing the number of patient visits.

This will also allow you to start more challenging cases and still deliver excellent clinical outcomes.

CAPS has partnered with the international Clear TPS team and through this elite group of 20 + years of experience with aligners ,they have planned over 150,000 aligner cases!!

Our CAPS planning service provides the most comprehensive aligner therapy planning and support for dentists across Australia, including:

  • Changes done for you
  • Support for most Aligner systems
  • FREE Invisalign, SmileStyler, and Angelalign Planning Service**
  • Changes made directly through the Doctor’s Aligner site
  • 30+ Years Experience in Orthodontics
  • Be with the team that has planned over 150,000 aligner cases and has a staggering 10% refinement rate.

The result?

  • Reduced number of aligners and refinements required.
  • Fewer hours spent in the clinic for the dentist and the patient.
  • Less hours of time consuming digital work for the doctor which usually needs to be done after work.
  • The ability to treat more challenging cases, which equates to more aligner cases in your practice and these cases being more successful with better clinical outcomes.
  • More profit per case.

With the CAPS program, 90% of cases are reported as having successful clinical outcomes without a need for refinement after the initial set up, with the correct treatment plan put in place .CAPS cases have less than a 10 % case refinement rate — which is staggering by world aligner standards.

    Dr Geoffrey Hall


    Dr Geoffrey Hall completed his dental training at the University of Melbourne in 1983, and then pursued his postgraduate orthodontic training at the University of Pennsylvania in 1990. While he had mixed results with his undergraduate dental education, he found his passion in orthodontics, coming first in his class at the University of Pennsylvania.

    That passion led him to open his successful practice at South Caulfield in Melbourne, where he specialised iin adult and children treatments including early treatment, conventional adolescent therapy, short-term orthodontics (Smilefast) and cosmetic treatment options including lingual braces, Invisalign and other aligner systems, and a strong emphasis on interdisciplinary treatment, including orthognathic surgical cases. . Over 28 years in practice and 10,000 orthodontic cases later, he has now dedicated himself to being the leading orthodontic educator for General Dentists, through The OrthoED Institute.

    Having developed the short term cosmetic orthodontic treatment called Smilefast, (with over 500 dentists having completed their training in Australia) the success is based around the unique digital indirect bonding system, the comprehensive theory, formulated from sound orthodontic principles and pre-course material. Add in the online support and Smilefast has developed into a profitable revenue stream for many of the dentists, who have embraced orthodontics into their practice.

    Dr Hall developed the OrthoEd Institute programme to give General
