13 min

Welcome to What I Wish I Knew by Dental Head Start. This is a podcast where we learn from people that have been there, made the mistakes, learnt the lessons and have developed into the accomplished dental professionals they are today.

It’s your weekly mentoring session.

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Originally made for assessment of implant cases, John and the AORTA team have modified it for application to aligners and in this podcast he explains the concept and the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

Key Tips to Takeaway for Tomorrow:

  • Assess cases to be Simple, Advanced, Complex depending on Micro, Macro and Global Factors.
  • We are obligated to stay within our scope of practice, SAC supports us in making this decision
  • Global factors such as compliance are the most important for aligners.
