We recently announced our new partnership with 32Co, the
world’s first fully-integrated clear aligner system: combining training,
manufacturing choice and 1:1 orthodontic mentorship into dentists’ clear
aligner workflow. This is the first partnership between a clear aligner company
and a dental indemnifier, one that hopes to reduce risk for dentists, and
improve patient outcomes.
As the first partnership benefit, Dental Protection members
will gain priority access to 32Co’s flagship training. The Clear Aligner
Stretch Course improves the clinical confidence and workflow of existing
providers in a CPD-accredited, comprehensive 4-week certification to get better
clinical outcomes. For practice owners looking to train new providers, the
equally rigorous Clear Aligner Starter Course gets associates treating patients
safely in under 6-weeks. 32Co has trained over 500 dentists to provide clear
aligner treatment confidently and safely with expert guidance. With a
significant waitlist for their training, Dental Protection members will now be
first in line for each newly released course date. Members can also access the
32Co Platform, which makes it possible to work directly with a specialist
orthodontist on every case.
Dr Sonia Szamocki, founder of 32Co, said:
“We are thrilled
to partner with Dental Protection, the world’s leading dental indemnifier. We
share a common vision of empowering dentists to provide safe and effective
clear aligner therapy, while reducing risk and enhancing patient satisfaction.
We believe that clear aligner orthodontics is not just a plastic device, but a
service that requires proper training and support. That’s why we created 32Co,
a platform that provides everything dentists need to succeed with clear
Raj Rattan MBE, Dental Director at Dental Protection, said:
“We are delighted to partner with 32Co, a company that is revolutionising the
dental industry. We recognise that clear aligners are becoming increasingly
popular among patients and dentists alike, but they also pose significant
challenges and risks if not done properly. That’s why we support 32Co’s
innovative model of integrating personalised training and 1:1 orthodontic
mentorship into the clear aligner case workflow. This not only improves
clinical outcomes and patient satisfaction but reduces personal risk and the likelihood
of complaints and claims.”
From May 2023 Dental Protection is partnering with 32Co
to give its members priority access to their Clear Aligner Stretch or Starter
Course with more benefits coming later this year.
