Course Overview

IAS Academy have partnered with Optident to deliver ortho restorative education based on successful aligner therapy aimed at General Dental Practitioners.
The Reveal Aligner training course allows you to combine cosmetic treatments to achieve a stunning smile in one treatment process.

Course Speaker
Guy graduated from Newcastle University in 2005 and completed his MFGDP qualification shortly after this. He is an experienced general dentist with focus on aesthetics. His aim is to give his patients a natural and functional dentition. He has completed extended courses in restorative dentistry, occlusion and endodontics and over the years has fine-tuned his knowledge by seeing as many leaders in their specific fields of dentistry as he can. Guy completed the IAS Advanced Course in 2008 and in 2021 was given the opportunity to teach for IAS with the ABB course. Alongside this Guy also teaches composite placement, rubber dam isolation and matrices for the Northern Deanery.

The Reveal aligner course covers all aspects of treatment from diagnosis, assessment, case evaluation, to fitting and then retention. After this course, attendees will be able to handle simple to moderate cases immediately. It is proven that getting started quickly will help you introduce Reveal clear aligners into your practice. You’re supported every step of the way with an online mentoring system, where your cases are checked for suitability, your records are assessed, and assistance can be given at any point through treatment.

Included is access to the mentoring platform, allowing clinicians to post their first case for Suitability Checks, Treatment Plan Discussions and Full Case Support.
