Welcome to AAO TechSelect
Discover how in-house fabrication of aligners can help you reach more patients.
Everyone’s looking for a straighter smile these days – and now people who need only minor adjustments will be able to look directly to you, your expertise and your practice to help them get it.
How an in-house lab can help you grow your practice.
It’s your practice – and having an in-house lab gives you independence from third-party vendors, helping you create truly customized treatment plans and deliver aligners as soon as the same day.
Your in-house lab enables you to create high-quality aligners for less than through third parties – savings that make a wider range of services available for your patients.
Expand Patient Base
Now you can offer a cost-effective and convenient treatment option for minor cases that you can start in a few hours or days instead of weeks.
New Revenue Source
Fabricating aligners in house represents an opportunity for a new revenue source from a new patient base.
