It is my pleasure as President of the American Association of Orthodontists to introduce a new, exclusive, member resource unveiled this week. AAO TechSelect is a comprehensive, unbiased resource for in-house fabrication of aligners. Through this program, members can learn about the process, research products, and save money by locking in the best prices from trusted partners.

Members expressed a need for these tools, and the AAO has delivered with over 40 videos, guides and interactive tools. AAO TechSelect is a research tool that provides an in-depth examination of the key criteria established by AAO’s Committee on Technology and allows you to evaluate products needed to fabricate in-house aligners for your practice.

There are several benefits to in-house fabrication of aligners including customized treatment plans, lower lab fees, and the ability to deliver aligners as soon as same-day. Furthermore, these benefits provide the opportunity to expand your patient base by offering high-quality, cost-effective, and convenient treatment options for minor cases. We believe that AAO members will find great value in TechSelect resources and the implementation of in-house fabrication of aligners should they decide it’s a good fit for their practice. 

AAO TechSelect is the first of many programs from the AAO’s Innovation & Transformation Fund established by the 2019 House of Delegates.
