Align Technology shared highlights from the 2023 Invisalign GP Summit, the company’s clinical education and networking experience designed to help doctors transform and grow their practice with Invisalign clear aligners, iTero scanners, and the Align Digital Platform.
Over the course of three days, more than 1,000 doctors and practice team members from across North America came together, alongside Align and peer-to-peer speakers to share treatment and workflow best practices, hands-on experiences to sharpen clinical skills, and practice growth and marketing strategies.
A key component of the Summit featured recent Align innovations that were developed to enhance the Invisalign treatment experience across the Align Digital Platform, a proprietary combination of software, systems, and services designed to provide a seamless experience and workflow that integrates and connects all users – doctors, labs, patients, and consumers.
Innovations that featured prominently in peer to peer presentations included ClinCheck Live Update for 3D controls, Invisalign Practice App, Invisalign Personalized Plan (IPP), and Invisalign Smile Architect, iTero-exocad Connector, Invisalign Outcome Simulator Pro, and Invisalign Virtual Care AI software. In addition, the importance of using tooth movement prior to restorative procedures to improve quality of restorations for patients was a common theme presented by doctors and the opportunity to change the standard of care for patients by incorporating tooth movement in everyday dentistry, not only for esthetics but function.
Several upcoming innovations were announced during the week of Invisalign GP Summit, including the Invisalign Palatal Expander System, Plan Editor, SmartForce attachment-free aligner activation feature, and new software innovations that will make use of data driven insights from Invisalign treated patients to enhance patient satisfaction, and support practice efficiency and digital practice workflows.
A presentation by David Galler, DDS, at the 2023 Invisalign GP Summit brought his treatment workflows to life on stage and demonstrated how he uses Invisalign System and iTero scanner innovations to provide excellent patient treatment experiences from first scan through Invisalign treatment and retention with Vivera retainers.
“Innovations from Align have transformed the way I practice dentistry and enabled me to achieve the highest-level clinical outcome together with maximum convenience for my dental practice and patients,” said Galler. “I’m able to apply my specific treatment preferences with IPP and ClinCheck Live Update for 3D controls, help patients visualize their future smile with the iTero scanner, and quickly begin the workflow toward Invisalign aligner delivery and then monitor Invisalign treatment progress with Invisalign Virtual Care AI.”
