Dentists: Why this San Francisco Store Could Ruin You

We said it would happen. In time, we knew Align Technology® would open up their own shop and change the direction of a profession.

Hello, 2018! Like cockroaches, where’s there’s one, there will be more. Are you ready? What are your options?

Yes, they are scanning to give patients to Invisalign® providers. Do you know what it takes to get to the top of the list to be recommended by the Invisalign Scan Techs? I highly recommend you take the time to review the terms and conditions of the 2018 Invisalign Advantage Program. There’s a lot of changes, and unless you are highly ranked, you will not be recommended.

Have you tried calling the Align Technology Concierge Program posing as a patient near your office? You have a right to know what your patients are being told about you. If you haven’t, do it. It will be an eye-opening experience. Hear what the Align Concierge® Team says and doesn’t say about you.

You strategize your 2018 business plan like an Align Store could move next door to you at any time. You need to make strategic moves to prepare yourself. What are your options?

  1. Read the Align® TOS for 2018 Advantage® and start pushing yourself to be a Diamond Provider and buy an iTero® so that you can be highly ranked. Go all-out as an Align® provider. Enjoy the 40% volume discount and patients flow.
  2. COMPETE with “Your Own Brand” of aligners! Consider investing in a 3D printer or in services that will 3D print for you. There are many options. Hire a coach like my team at StraightSmile Solutions to help you initially with your treatment planning skills and software training. We can also help train your team. You’ll slash your overhead and take control over your aligner orthodontics. With lower overhead and maybe even same-day aligners, you can undercut the prices offered by the doctors affiliated with the Align Scan Shop® and take back your market. See my blog post here for more information on this.

StraightSmile Solutions is the future of orthodontic coaching. We are the first online portal to provide a doctor-to-doctor consulting service that will allow dentists and their teams to access the knowledge and expertise of an industry expert, in order to enhance information sharing and efficiency in problem-solving.
