I got to speak with some aligner legends...

Published 12 days ago • 5 min read

Hey Friends,

I got to speak with some aligner legends over the last 2 weeks - docs who collectively have done THOUSANDS of cases... and when I asked them what their message would be to dentists who have not dived into aligners yet they all said the same thing...

"What are you waiting for?!"

These conversations were really fun to have because I got to pick their brains about how they educate their docs but we got to go deeper. I got to hear their stories and journeys about how they got into aligners and how they GREW to where they are today.

They all said they could have never imagined to be in the position they are in today.

I made it a point to ask all of them "what did you think your career would be like when you first graduated dental school."

They all said that this was not part of the plan but they wouldn't trade their journey for anything.

This is the message that I am trying to share with you my friend.

When you step into the world of aligners - your career will change.

It won't be subtle either - it will be drastic.

There are several walking examples of this phenomenon.

You may or may not believe me - and that is one of the reasons why I started the Clear Aligner Chats podcast.

I want to bring aligner experts to one place - get them to share their stories and pull the curtain back on how they got to where they are.

Another bit to the podcast that I would like to share with you all are shorter episodes where it is just me and you. I share a tip about aligners or mindset or whatever I feel like talking about lol - I haven't really dialed this out but am open to your suggestions/feedback.

Another goal of mine with Clear Aligner Chats is to bring other people in the industry on as guests and have them share their unique stories with you. Maybe I even bring dentists who are just starting out with aligners and they can share their stories with you so that it feels a little closer to home for you and can be more relatable?


So many dentists ask me "what scanner should I use?"

I always say "it depends on your situation."

Here is the problem with the industry - there is innovation that is occurring but nobody knows about it. Why?

Because the current platforms that are meant to broadcast this information are LACKING on the marketing side. I want to make a positive change here.

Wouldn't it be nice to listen to a podcast where you have multiple founders/reps from all the different aligner companies and scanners that are out there and share with you more about their products and services?

I am personally fascinated with the aligner space and I selfishly think this would be a great way to talk to people in the industry but you may find value in the conversations as well.

iTero - medit -trios - 3shape - dandy - primescan

What are the differences between them?
What are the benefits?
What are the cons?
What type of practice is each one best for?

There's so many questions that you are only getting answers from... your friends or a rep who comes into your office or.... the toxic facebook groups lol

If this is REMOTELY interesting to you - PLEASE RESPOND to this email and let me know whether or not you would even tune in.

And if you have a topic you want me to discuss or a guest you think I should have on please feel free to share this as well!

Again guys - I am personally sending this email to you - Dr. Avi. Not some AI robot lol

I really want to bring value to your life and I am all ears as I am creating this podcast!

It's a fun project but I think it could really change the landscape of the industry and how you get your information!

Hey Friends, So as you know Smile Direct Club has shut down and a bunch of dentists have started to run ads to try to get a piece of this juicy aligner pie. They are letting patients know that they can come see them if they were left stranded by SDC. This is smart - and if you aren't doing it you should. If your next thought was "damn but I don't really know how to do it..." Then you should NOT be advertising your practice as a place for people to get help with aligners. Only docs who are...

Hey Friends, Have you given up on your new years resolution yet? If so - you aren't alone lol I made the classic mistake of taking on too many new goals and habits and already ditched half of them. I am totally fine with it because I feel like the goals I have now are just a few and I can really focus on them. In addition to new years goals you may have started to map out where you want to invest your 2024 CE money this year and I wanted to bring to light an alarming issue that nobody...
