Dental Protection announces new partnership with 32Co, the world’s first fully-integrated clear aligner system, and offers Dental Protection members priority access to courses. Completion of 32Co's courses will also count towards five RiskCredits, whereby we reward dentists with reduced subscriptions as part of our package of risk management initiatives.

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 aligners.” 

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. Dental Protection members can apply here.

Our partnership is with 32Co and Dental Protection has no affiliation with any clear aligner provider or laboratory who may be advertised on 32Co's Clear Aligner Marketplace.
