Choosing an Invisalign® Dentist
Grove City Dentist Serving Columbus, Dublin, Hilliard, Ohio
Because the success of your Invisalign treatment depends in part on your choice of dentist, it’s important to work with a dentist who is experienced with the Invisalign process and with whom you feel comfortable.
Not all dentists or orthodontists are certified to practice Invisalign treatment. Only authorized Invisalign providers, such as Grove City dentist Dr. Raymond Sheridan, have undergone specialized training by Align Technologies—the makers of Invisalign—to ensure they provide patients with effective Invisalign treatment techniques.

Questions to Ask an Invisalign Dentist

- How many cases have you successfully treated with Invisalign?
- How will Invisalign correct my specific condition?
- How long will my treatment take?
- How often will I need to visit your office for follow-ups?
- What happens if I lose or break an Invisalign aligner?
- Will I need additional treatment after I complete my series of Invisalign aligners?
