Since CONFIDEX Predictable Digital Treatment Planning has been launched by Six Month Smiles on 1st November I have been quite excited and have been itching to use it.
You may have seen my post earlier this week: I proudly became one of the few Orthodontists to become certified as a Six Month Smiles® provider. Over the years, I’ve coached hundreds of General Dentists with various aligner systems. All too often, finishing cases is a significant barrier to overcome and trying to educate General Dentists who have no knowledge of basic straight-wire biomechanics is a challenge at its core.
I did it – I successfully completed the Level 1 course from Six Month Smiles. As an Orthodontist with 10+ years of clinical experience with thousands of fixed and removable outcomes under my belt, this may by counter-intuitive. Truthfully, Six Month Smiles certification has been on my orthodontic bucket-list for years now. It’s a wildly successful brand, both nationally and internationally. Doctors rave about the services, support, and experience. I wanted to know the “secret sauce”.

I’m so happy to be writing this post. June last year I decided to get a brace fitted and I just recently got it taken off. I won’t go into much detail but the photos will clearly illustrate how pleased I am with my decision. I thought it was super important to blog about this because since having the brace I realised how much of a big deal it wasn’t. I was so nervous about getting one in my 20’s and I felt ridiculous for the most part. I couldn’t help thinking I would look stupid and strange and that people would just stare at them. Quite a few people have told me they want one. My advice would be don’t care about what other people think just do it for you.
