Smiles Northwest Achieves Premier Status as an Invisalign Provider
Portland, Oregon – January 18, 2012 – Smiles Northwest has again maintained its standing as a select group of dental professionals who have achieved “Premier Provider” status for the Invisalign tooth-straightening system. Only the top five percent of clinicians who have maintained a high level of experience in using the Invisalign system are named to this group.
“Invisalign uses a clear, virtually invisible series of removable series of aligners to straighten teeth, without any restrictive or uncomfortable wires and brackets,” Dr. Montrose explained. “They are incredibly popular with patients of all ages who appreciate the convenience of the system and how easily it suits their lifestyle.”
Before being authorized to prescribe Invisalign treatment to their patients, dentists and orthodontists must attend a special training course offered by Align Technology, the makers of Invisalign. The training focuses on clinical principles and successful treatment techniques as well as Invisalign’s unique software and manufacturing process. After completion of the course, doctors are able to combine their clinical expertise with proprietary 3-D Invisalign software to order a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that move teeth in precise increments according to the doctor’s personalized patient treatment plan. Doctors can only be named “Premier Providers” when they have reached a higher level of experience with the system than their peers.
Dr. Montrose and Smiles Northwest have been providing Invisalign treatments to their patients for over 10 years. To learn more about Invisalign or to schedule a free Invisalign consultation, please call Smiles Northwest at 503-644-7763.
