3 Things to Look for in an Invisalign Doctor

Ready to straighten your smile and renew your confidence without all the metal and hassle of traditional braces? Invisalign could be the perfect solution. The clear, removable, custom-made aligners will shift your teeth in incremental steps to the final desired position for a healthier smile. But before jumping into treatment, it’s important to know that not all Invisalign doctors are equal. Here are three things to look for in an Invisalign doctor.

3 Things to Look for in an Invisalign Doctor

Invisalign Ranking

Selecting an Invisalign doctor with quality experience is important, especially for more complicated cases. Invisalign provides a helpful ranking system to classify providers’ experience based on the number of cases they treat in a month or year. The rankings include Diamond, Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Bronze, as well as a Valued Invisalign Provider (VIP) distinction and “Plus” status, which recognizes more experience in a given ranking.

How Much Does Invisalign Cost?

Online Reviews

Rankings are great, but there’s nothing like hearing from real patients when researching Invisalign doctors. Once you narrow your search to the top Invisalign providers with the most experience, take time to search for online reviews. Look for Invisalign providers who receive high marks for patient care. Remember: no orthodontist or Invisalign doctor can please everyone all the time, but steer clear from Invisalign providers with an overwhelming number of negative reviews.

Payment Options

Orthodontic care, like Invisalign or braces, can be a big investment. But decades of a beautiful smile and the confidence that comes with it are worth it! The cost of Invisalign treatment will be similar among providers, so it’s worth researching payment options to find affordable options. Insurance may help cover the cost of Invisalign as well. A highly experienced Invisalign doctor may cost slightly more, but treatment quality and payment options could offset the difference in the long run.

At Gorman & Bunch Orthodontics, we have multiple Invisalign doctors on our staff and have successfully treated more cases with Invisalign than 99% of doctors in North America — making us the top provider of Invisalign and Invisalign Teen within the state of Indiana. We’re proud of our Invisalign VIP: Diamond Plus ranking and are honored to work with hundreds of Invisalign patients throughout Central Indiana.

We believe financing should not be an obstacle to a healthy, beautiful smile with Invisalign. Our treatment coordinators will work with you to find a custom financing option that fits your unique situation.

  • review rating 5  This 64 year old had teeth that had begun to overlap in my adult years, which was attributed to having 4 good teeth removed as a child for "Crowded teeth". I waited to fund Invisalign until incurring no penalty for taking IRA funds, other than taxes. I was fortunate to be referred to Dr. Jason Bunch by my dentist, Dr. Jack Nicewander. Dr. Bunch and his Carmel, IN office staff see numerous children and young adults, but welcome the young at heart as well. I trust them and find them accommodating, efficient, professional and compassionate.

    review rating 5  I just started my first week with the Invisalign. The staff has been extremely friendly and helpful through every step. Dr Carly’s initial evaluation of my case was extremely thorough and the options were explained in detail to help make an informed decision. They’ve certainly exceeded my expectation and from the looks of it, they do a great job with their younger patients as well!

    review rating 5  I can’t say enough great things about this office. I am legal guardian of my sister and she is going through Invisalign with them… She’s almost done and I am amazed by the results. I also go there for continued orthodontic care because orthodontic retention is for life! So glad I have such great people to care for our teeth!!!

  • review rating 5  Personal and professional, everyone always takes great care of my sensitive mouth teen! This is our first experience with needing orthodontia, when it’s time for my youngest to get braces, we’ll choose this place again in a heartbeat. From the team up front to the team in the back, everyone is so nice and yet so efficiently on task, it is quite impressive. They have reasonable pricing and are willing to help with a payment plan. Keep up the great work!!

    review rating 5  We were very pleased with the staff and services at Gorman & Bunch. From the beginning, they were very friendly and made us feel comfortable with our first ortho visit. Dr. Carly was very nice and attentive. We ended up with braces for my son on the first visit and they were quick and thorough and made our experience very positive. Definitely would recommend them! They are awesome!
