Is Invisalign Provider Ranking or Ortho Board Certification More Important?

#1 Post by C11 » Mon May 13, 2019 8:05 am

In seeking Invisalign treatment, would you prioritize an ortho with the highest Invisalign provider ranking or an ortho with board certification? Only two orthos in my region have board certification. One is a Gold ranking and another is Silver. There are Diamond Plus and Platinum orthos in the area (these are higher ranked), and one is recognized as a top Invisalign doc but is not a board-cerified ortho.

Another factor to consider is that the new Invisalign ranking system is based on the number of Invisalign cases they've done in the past 6 months. Given that the board certified ortho with only a silver ranking is just returning from maternity leave, I don't feel it's fair to write her off as less experienced if the ranking only means she's had less experience in the last 6 months. (This is also the most convenient location).

Thanks for your opinions!
