THE EVENT IS ADVERTISED AS BEING AN IMPARTIAL CLEAR ALIGNER SYMPOSIUM. WHAT DOES IMPARTIAL MEAN?
For a long time, any kind of aligner education has been specific to a certain system. The sole aim of this symposium is to openly educate about clear aligners, and not a specific brand. This concept is best demonstrated through a dental example.In endodontics, some practitioners are interested in learning, say, the “ProTaper” system, whereas some practitioners are interested in learning the core principles of endodontics. They are interested in learning how to use certain techniques to achieve their desired result and how to integrate them into their practice. Additionally, when attending specific system based training, some presenters may be muted due to the nature of the course.
Depending on your involvement in clear aligners, it may or may not surprise to know there are more than one hundred clear aligner manufacturers in the world. It may also surprise you that the fundamental concepts of treatment remains the same for all clear aligners. We strongly believe that the clear aligner market will continue to grow at an exponential rate and the time is now to learn about clear aligners: what they can do, what they can’t do, biomechanics, how to implement them in your practice and how to succeed in the field. All aligner companies being used in Australia will be invited to have a booth at the symposium trade-show room but under no circumstance whatsoever will there be financial or other influence as to what is said and presented at this event by any clear aligner company. We have worked extremely hard to secure the very best, educational and engaging speakers in the field to present at our symposium. Each clinician invited to speak about aligners comes with enriched knowledge from their case experiences, which means they have a wealth of knowledge about aligners and are ready to share it with us.
IF A SPEAKER HAS AN AFFILIATION WITH ANY COMPANY OR PRODUCT, WILL WE FIND OUT?
Yes, ACAS2020 has a completely transparent and open disclosure policy for all speakers and any affiliation (financial or other) will be commented at the start of the speakers’ talk.
WHO IS BEHIND ACAS2020?
The Australasian Clear Aligner Society (ACAS) was created from an impartial group of like minded individuals that believe the aligner industry is changing. The only way to ensure we can provide completely honest education was to remain impartial to any clear aligner brand. That way, you can rest assured knowing that everything that is presented is without financial (or other) influence.
