Whether patients like it or not, there are times when aligners won't work to correct their smile issues. We get it. That's why Six Month Smiles® Clear Braces were created. Using a barely noticeable system of tooth-colored brackets placed in Indirect Bonding Trays together with white wires, dentists are able to give patients the smiles of their dreams in less time than traditional braces! That's what Guided Orthodontics is all about giving GPs the right tool for the right job. Get started with Brackets and Wires by attending our Braces 1 Day Live course. Note: Those interested in aligner training, should take the Aligners eCourse.
They're easy, effective, and let's face it, sometimes patients need them. Because 6MS offers a solution for every smile, Dentists know our Orthodontic planners are not beholden to any one type of appliance. After your 2-day hands-on training, you'll be certified to deliver Aligners, Braces, or Mixed Appliances (Aligners on the top arch & Braces on the Lower Arch) to your patients. That's something everyone can smile about!

Yes, we do require completion of our course in order use the Six Month Smiles System. If you are unable to attend a Live 1-Day course, we also have a Braces e-Course available that you can take at your convenience. For questions concerning this, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
While it is not neccessary for your staff to attend a course, Six Month Smiles strongly recommends having your team trained on the system. The most successful Six Month Smiles Providers have had their team trained and are able to delegate some of the Six Month Smiles tasks. In addition, it will make your team more comfortable about talking with your patients about Six Month Smiles and helps with seamlessly integrating Six Month Smiles into your practice.
Yes, after completing either our Braces Live 1-Day or Braces e-Course, you will be able to start treating your patients with our Clear Braces system. If you are interested in treating your patients with our Invisible Aligners or Mixed Appliances (Invisible Aligners on the top arch and Clear Braces on the lower arch) you would need to complete one of our Aligner Courses as well.
Upon completing a Six Month Smiles Course, you will have full access to our Provider Resource Center. To submit a case, you will log into the Provider Resource Center and click on the "Submit a Case" button. This will prompt you to complete the patient's prescription, upload photos, and indicate how you will be sending impressions (digital or physical). Once we receive the impressions and the completed prescription, we will begin processing your case!
For all live on-location courses offered by 6MS, the following cancellation policy applies:
We know you will make every effort to attend the course, but if for some reason you can't, simply notify us 14 business days prior to the first day of the course and we will transfer you to another course at no charge. You can select another course to attend within 1 year from the original course date you selected.
If on the rare occasion (mostly likely due to weather) 6MS needs to cancel a course you may opt for either a full refund or transfer to another course. The course will not be cancelled if we are able to start by 1PM on the course date.
The following applies to live on-location courses and e-Courses:
6MS Courses and e-Courses are non-refundable. Course fees will be charged in USD and 6MS is not responsible for any foreign currency exchange fees. The 6MS courses and e-Courses cannot be transferred to another dentist. 6MS reserves the right to change the course venue location, instructor, or pricing without notice.
If you are a Six Month Smiles Provider who has already completed our Legacy course, the 2-Day Level 1 Course, it isn't required for you to complete the Aligner course to begin treating your patients with aligners. You already have the guided orthodontic principles learned from our Level 1 Course. While we are "grand fathering" you to be able to submit aligner cases, based on a self-assessment of your confidence with aligners, we encourage you to take the aligner on-line or aligner one-day course.
If you have completed our Braces 1-Day Live Course or our Braces e-Course, you would be required to complete one of our Aligner courses, either our 1-Day Live Course or our e-Course to begin treating patients with aligners.
As always, if you have additional questions, please feel free to chat with us or email us at email@example.com.

For example, if you feel more confident with aligners than braces, you can register for the Aligner e-Course and the Braces Live 1-Day course for the additional hands-on learning. Our courses are sold seperately so you can choose the combination that works best for you!
