Attendees participated in a series of workshops to learn about the benefits of the Align Digital Platform™, an integrated suite of unique, proprietary technologies and services delivered as a seamless, end-to-end solution for patients, consumers, orthodontists, GP dentists, and lab partners. Sessions also focused on the advanced iTero™ intraoral scanner technology and informing attendees about complex case treatment capabilities using the Invisalign® clear aligner system.
