Align Technology Inc, San Jose, Calif, has launched the 2011–2012 Invisalign Gallery University Challenge. The challenge, open to any accredited orthodontic program in North America, invites residents to submit their best Invisalign treatment outcomes for a chance to attend and present their results at the 2012 Invisalign Summit for orthodontic practices in Las Vegas next year. An award pool of $34,000 will be divided among the first, second, and third place winners.

Submissions can be made in one of four clinical categories: Class I, Class II, Class III, and multidiscipline. All submissions will be reviewed by private-practice orthodontists and judged based on treatment difficulty, records quality, and outcomes achieved.

The orthodontic residents who receive the top score in each clinical category and their supervising faculty members will be invited to present their treatment results at the 2012 Invisalign Summit.

All submitted entries will also be published in the 2011–2012 Invisalign Gallery University Challenge yearbook.

The deadline for Invisalign Gallery University Challenge submissions is August 15, 2012. For official rules, click here.
