It never ceases to amaze me that some of the best and most successful Dentists in Australia really weren’t that passionate in the beginning. This description describes Dr Geoff Hall’s feelings towards general dentistsry, only to have his eyes opened and passion ignited with specialist Orthodontics training in the US.

Choosing an aligner system was once simple, you had little choice, it was just Invisalign.
But the few became many and the options only continue to expand today. With direct to consumer businesses on the market in Australia, the competition is increasing.

Traffic lights, such a simple concept, green for go, red to stop. Have you ever considered your cases in a similar way?
The AORTA SAC assessment protocol is an excellent way to assess your aligner cases and ensure you’re practicing within your scope of practice.
Originally made for assessment of implant cases, John and the AORTA team have modified it for application to aligners and in this podcast he explains the concept and the important points to consider
Cosmetic dentistry has been revolutionised a few times over the last 30 years. First, bonding of porcelain gave the ability to recreate natural smiles with fixed prosthetic solutions. Then came more effective, natural composites that facilitated reduced preparation and beautiful results when the situation did not indicate porcelain. Recently, clear aligners have changed the game. Moving teeth to the best position before picking up the hand piece, or better yet, instead of any preparation. It’s the ultimate conservative step forward.
This episode we have the pleasure of chatting with two of Australia’s leading general dentists in the clear aligner space. Dr John Hagiliassis and Dr George Abdelmalek are the Founders of ACAS, the Australiasia Clear Aligner Society and have thousands of cases under their belt between them.
John is the founder of AORTA (Aesthetic, Orthodontic and Restorative Training Academy), an academy that helps dentists take the first few steps in providing aligner solutions for their patients.
