Event Details


There is a great demand to use clear aligners, but the majority of dentists want more support to achieve a high level of care and avoid frustrating situations. Progressive Orthodontic Seminars has partnered with ClearCorrect (from the Straumann Group) to design Aligner+, a solution for dentists to always be successful in clear aligner therapy.

 A more extensive diagnosis system ensures that you choose the right cases that you know you can treat well. Consultants help you prepare treatment plans with great predictability so you know exactly how your treatment will progress. An honest approach means solutions to any problem you may encounter, from lack of patient compliance to using brackets when needed.

Clear Aligners are a popular and powerful treatment that your patients want. The first step to being successful is growing your knowledge and skills.

Twelve days of education will give you the tools to choose the right cases and appliances to have complete control. Effectively help patients with Class I, Class II, and Class III, of both extraction and non-extraction modalities.

Brackets Too?

In addition to understanding clear aligner therapy, you will also gain knowledge of brackets which can help you on the occasion when patients are not compliant or if you need more efficient tooth movement. An honest understanding of aligners and tooth movement will help you be successful on every case.

Both Progressive and Straumann believe that dentists can provide a high level of aligner care with honest education, quality product, and expert support. Together they have developed an effective program for dentists to be successful in aligners in a realistic practice environment. This program was designed for real doctors with real limitations.

The Straumann Group has been the global leader in implants, restorative and regenerative dentistry and entered the orthodontic industry in 2017 by acquiring ClearCorrect. Wanting to give dentists even more resources, Straumann appointed the leader in orthodontic continuing education, Progressive Orthodontic Seminars, to become its global education partner.

Progressive Orthodontic Seminars has trained thousands of dentists around the world to provide quality orthodontic care. For the past 35 years, Progressive has provided comprehensive orthodontic training with a heavily researched and honest curriculum so that doctors can successfully grow their practices within the realities of the clinic. Like all their programs, Aligner+ was made by dentists, for dentists, and has lifetime support to ensure that every dentist can be successful.
