Join Dan and Wayne in conversation as they discuss the implications of dentist inclusion on key aspects of clear aligner treatments:
Dan is an experienced dentist and dental technician, who has a passion and flair for all things digital. His dental practice, a private digital restorative practice in Hertfordshire, is well respected in the area by patients and dental professionals alike.
Over the past two decades he has been committed to training dental professionals on behalf of Dental Protection Ltd, has taught at GKT and delivered many in practice training programmes. He is an experienced broadcaster and filmmaker delivering countless lectures and training courses on Dentolegal and digital dental subjects in the UK and abroad.
Dr Dan Shaffer is co-founder and clinical lead of Active Aligners UK.
Wayne qualified in South Africa in 1988, completed post graduate training in 1998. Wayne is a dental practice owner in Edgware, Middlesex as well as in Cranbrook, Kent and was ex Clinical Director of Vantage Health; an IT telemedicine company.
Wayne has a special interest in Forensic Odontology and has been deployed abroad attending mass disaster incidents. His love of teaching encompasses both at his Alma mater as well as mentoring troubled young people.
As an experienced clinical dentist, Wayne’s vision is to offer affordable, quality orthodontics through clear aligners. Aligner therapy is traditionally supplied through large corporates or controversially, direct to consumer. However, Active Aligners philosophy is “for dentists by dentists”.
