    Doctors who have achieved such provider status are the ones with most expertise because they have the highest rating of Invisalign approval and they have completed the most cases. Highest rating of Invisalign approval means that the Invisalign treatment plan suggested by the doctor, i.e. how the teeth should be moved to achieve the desired smile, is approved by Align Technology as “attainable”.

    Orthodontist vs Dentist for Invisalign

    Well trained General Dentists and Orthodontists are equally qualified to deliver Invisalign treatment with beautiful, long-lasting and clinically appropriate results. Both Invisalign dentists and orthodontists are required to get the same continuing education to be qualified to provide the treatment. Orthodontists may promote conventional ceramic or metal braces to lower their overhead since the cost of the Clear Aligners is more expensive. Though patients may qualify for an Invisalign, they may end up with fixed braces under the premise that due to their bite they may not be a candidate for Invisalign. Dr. Sang Ahn is a general dentist who does Invisalign. His VIP Diamond Plus status confirms his high qualifications as a top Invisalign preferred provider despite not being an orthodontist.
