Considering providing clear aligners?

We understand that you may want to offer your patients more treatment options, so we’ve partnered with 32Co to help build your skills and reduce your risk. If you’re a Foundation dentist entering Year 2 membership, your subscription rate will not change if you offer clear aligner treatment, provided you undertake the 32Co Starter course and continue to provide clear aligners after successfully completing it.**

As a Dental Protection member, you'll get priority access to this free flagship training. The CPD-accredited Clear Aligner Starter Course is spread across just 4 weeks and gives you the extra support and confidence to treat patients safely. You can also get access to the 32Co Platform, so you can work directly with a specialist orthodontist on every case.

You’ll need to let us know when you start the 32Co Starter Course by giving our team a call on 0800 561 9000.
