Frequently Asked Questions:
No. We know that you’re a professional and we trust your judgement.
It’s not difficult at all. You can start with an intraoral scan, impressions, or stone models. For cases with impressions or stone models, we scan them for you. Once the patient information is in a digital format, our software uses special algorithms to pre-plan your case.
Of course! We have everything you need to get the word out. (flip book, brochures, and even a video for your waiting room) You can order our marketing kit from our website.
First create your free online account and select to option to be listed as a provider. If have already registered as a member, log into the settings of your account on our webpage and make sure that you’ve checked the box. It’s that simple!
This will be different for each case and depends on how quickly you get the impressions and/or STL file and bite photos to us. Once we have digital scans and bite photos from your patient, your treatment plan will be ready in about 3 business days depending on order volume.
That’s simple. Before any aligners are fabricated, we will send you the proposed treatment plan as well as a video showing the simulated teeth movement. We won’t start until you say “Yes”.
Of course you can. If your patient changes their mind or if you decide on a different course of treatment, just let us know.
Many patients want a better smile but are too self-conscious to wear traditional braces. Aligners can be used for many orthodontic applications such as:
• Deep overbite (Class II div 2 cases)
• Mild crowding and malalignment problems (1-5 mm)
• Lower incisor extraction for severe crowding cases
• Absolute intrusion of 1 or 2 teeth
• Spacing problems (1-5 mm)
• Narrow arches that can be expanded without tipping the teeth too much.
• Tip molar(s) distally
While we’d love to tell you that our clear aligners can be used for every orthodontic application, that simply isn’t true. There are some case that are severe enough that aligners alone will not provide the desired results. Examples of those cases would be:
• Extrusion of teeth
• Crowding and spacing over 5 mm
• Teeth with short clinical crowns
• Arches with multiple missing teeth or dental implants
• Skeletal anterior-posterior discrepancies of more than 2 mm (as measured by discrepancies in cuspid relationships)
• Centric-relation and centric-occlusion discrepancies
• Severely tipped teeth (> 45 degrees)
• Severely rotated teeth (> 20 degrees)
• Open bites (anterior and posterior) that need to be closed
Of course not. We want your focus to be on your patients, not memberships and subscriptions to a variety of services.

Every case will be different. Simplified orthodontic cases or minor cosmetic cases can be done in just a few months to a year. More involved cases or long-term retention can last a couple of years or more. The more compliant your patient, the easier it will be to determine the length of your case.
Most dental insurances do cover orthodontia. Some companies cover a specified amount (usually $500-$3000) while others cover a percentage (from 25% to 50%) up to a certain amount. To be certain, check with the specific insurances that you accept.
If your patient is a candidate for one, they are a candidate for both. Daytime aligners are worn about 22 hours per day, while nighttime aligners are worn about 10 hours a night. Since patient compliance plays a big role in the success and predictability of a case; you’ll want to find out which option they will be the most comfortable (and compliant) with.
No. We can accept impressions or stone models as well as STL files from intraoral scanners. If you have one, feel free to use it, but don’t feel the need to purchase one just to get started with clear aligners.
That’s easy – ours! We have the most straight-forward, simplified pricing plan in the industry. Start by paying only for what you need (per treatment plan and per appliance), in about 12 months, you’ll reach our Price Cap, then the rest of your case is free! (up to 36 months per case)
We will begin to fabricate the aligners for your patient once you approve the proposed treatment plan in EasyRx®. Your approval of your patient’s treatment plan is your consent to purchase the Park Dental Aligner kit. If you do not have payment information on file, a Park Dental customer representative will call to help set up your account and payment preferences.
