This course will only be offered to alumni of the Aligner Intensive Fellowship.
This CE module will be facilitated through a private Facebook study group led and moderated by Drs. Moshiri and Nicozisis, where they will repost and make all videos live immediately. The forum will be open for questions as needed.
This course is meant to serve as an opportunity for alumni only to accrue CE credits for the content they previously reviewed, as the course just recently became accredited to offer 45 ADA CERP credits. Per ADA CERP guidelines, CE cannot be issued retroactively; hence, the course must be “retaken”. Please note, the videos are made live for your convenience, but you should be able to take the quiz immediately without issue to gain your CE credits.
The material is a repeat of what was offered in the first Fellowship, plus any new content.
A 100 question quiz will be provided through a third party website, allowing for issuing of 45 ADA CERP credits.

Educational objectives: Upon course completion, participants should understand all innovations of the most prevalent clear aligner systems. Furthermore, fundamentals of tooth movement with plastic will be reviewed in detail, allowing the practitioner to handle situations where “innovations” may not exist, or to reproduce force-systems and solutions for in-house aligners as needed. Practice systems and suggestions for seamless integration of digital workflows will be reviewed, from tracking submitted cases to bonding attachments clinically. Suggestions for how to successfully treat Class I, II, III, deep bite, open bite, extractions, TADs, and orthognathic surgery cases will also be discussed in detail. Phase I aligners, teens, and new functional appliances features are also thoroughly reviewed. Lastly, business considerations and profitability determinations will be reviewed.
Course materials: Online videos that may be downloaded to keep, handouts for personal use, articles to read from manufacturers and peer reviewed journals that are topic specific, CE verification after passing quizzes, access to the group for one year as a private study group and peer enhanced forum for continued learning.
Course location: Registrants will be emailed specific details to join a private Facebook group where an interactive group discussion based on the written and video course materials will ensue for the duration of the course as well as 12 months after.
