At King Orthodontics, we understand that finding the right treatment provider in Pittsburgh for your Invisalign® treatment can be challenging. To ensure you receive high-quality expert treatment, it is recommended that you choose a Diamond Plus provider when selecting where you want to receive treatment. Below we have put together some information to help you make the best decision for your orthodontic care.
What is a Diamond Plus Classification?
The Diamond Plus Classification is the highest status that an orthodontist can earn from Invisalign®. Invisalign® awards this accreditation to orthodontists to provide patients with a clear indication of the orthodontist’s experience and expertise regarding the Invisalign® treatment system.
How Are Invisalign® Classifications Determined?
Each Invisalign® provider classification is determined by the number of cases the provider completes within a year. The three Invisalign® classifications include:
- Gold provider- Must complete 25 cases in a calendar year.
- Platinum provider – Must complete 60 cases in a year.
- Diamond Plus provider- Must complete 200 cases every six months, 400 cases per year total.
Why it is Important to Choose a Diamond Plus Orthodontist
Keep in mind that a Diamond Plus Provider is performing a minimum of 400 cases per year. This means they have more expertise and experience with the Invisalign® Treatment system compared to other Invisalign providers. This prestigious classification is given as a reward to orthodontists who are providing the highest quality treatment with Invisalign® to their patients. This classification also serves to recognize the provider’s achievements and expertise with the Invisalign treatment system.
Diamond Plus Providers make up a small portion of the over 40,000 Invisalign® providers in the U.S. Think about your shopping process for a car or home repairs. You always search for the service provider that is highly regarded, has excellent reviews, and has the awards and accolades to show they are the best for the job. This shopping method should also be applied to shopping for orthodontic care.
