Selecting the Right Invisalign Orthodontist

If you are considering braces as an adult or for your teen, Invisalign may be a great solution.  Invisalign is a series of clear, removable aligners which gradually straighten your teeth.   It’s an effective way to improve your smile without disrupting your life.

You want to feel comfortable knowing that you can trust and depend on your doctor for quality oral health. You want an orthodontist that will give you the results you expect – straight teeth and a beautiful healthy smile.

Fortunately, Invisalign has taken some of the guess work out of your search.  They’ve made it convenient for anyone to search directly on their site by zip code, city, or state to find a convenient provider. Invisalign has set specific guidelines for certifying providers of their system.  These guidelines have gotten tougher each year.

  1. For starters it means that Owl Orthodontics has been using Invisalign for a quite some time.  The elite program requires that the doctor has completed at least 300 lifetime cases of Invisalign.
  2. In order to maintain our Invisalign Elite Preferred designation, Dr. Wright must have 48 new patients that begin Invisalign treatment every 6 months.  This means that we treat a minimum of 96 new Invisalign patients each year compared to the average Invisalign doctor who typically has 4-6 new Invisalign patients per year.
  3. It also means that Dr Wright and his staff are committed to this technology.  The doctor(s) needs to complete 10 continuing education Invisalign classes per year.  This ensures they are staying current with new Invisalign techniques and innovation.
