Why Are You Not Doing More Invisalign Cases? by Dr Barry Buckley


If 75% of your patients could benefit from teeth straightening why aren’t you doing a minimum of 1 case per week?


Let’s go back to basics – in dental school we are taught to diagnose caries, periodontal issues etc and treat accordingly. You need to retrain your mind to add malocclusion into what you are diagnosing and what needs to be discussed with the patient.

Your body language, the words you choose to use and whether you really believe in what you are saying will all influence the patient’s decision to proceed. Often there are not only aesthetic benefits to treatment but also functional. Improving the alignment could prevent tooth wear, allow better oral hygiene or simply allow more conservative preparations for direct or indirect restorations.
