Clinical aspects of clear aligner treatment – Dan and Wayne in conversation

Join Dan and Wayne as they share their experiences and opinions. They will present two cases that challenged their perceptions of what is 'suitable' for aligner therapy and discuss what makes IPR and attachments important clinical aspects of effective treatment. Hear how identifying suitable clear aligner cases has changed the revenue profile of their practices.
