In order to offer Invisalign treatment to patients, dentists must undergo rigorous training through Align Technology, the company who makes it. If you are looking for an Invisalign doctor in Los Angeles and do not already have someone in mind, the company website is a good starting point to find one.
Not only does the company control qualification for Invisalign, they certify dentists according to how much experience the particular dentist has with the treatment. They do this through designations, increasing from “Preferred” to “Premiere” to “elite” to “Top 1% Doctor.” Though these designations speak only to experience level and not quality of treatment, patients are more likely to find quality outcomes with higher experience levels. Outcomes are more uncertain when the dentist has little experience, so these designations can serve as a guide to find a dentist who is more likely to produce quality results.
But there is more to finding a good dentist than experience level. You will be working with this person on an on-going basis, so you need to feel comfortable with your choice. Once you identify experienced dentists, schedule a consultation with each of them to discuss your case and make sure they are a good fit. Do they listen to you? Do they answer all your questions and address your concerns? Meeting with them will allow you to assess whether they are the right person for you.
