Frequently asked questions

Who are the trainers on the sessions?

Drs. Couchat and Sabouni on all the sessions and punctually an international guest speaker who will be able to share his experience on a specific theme during a one or two hour intervention.

If I register for a certification course, when can I can I begin seeing my first patients for Invisalign® treatment?

As soon as we receive your complete file, we will send your contact information to Invisalign® so that the referent in your sector can contact you and give you – within about two weeks – your login and your temporary password.
From then on, you can create your first patient files.
It is highly recommended to have three cases before the beginning of the training so that you can put into practice the theoretical knowledge from the first module and benefit from the doctors’ support for your first prescriptions.

I have been certified in the past but I have not (or very little) treated patients, which training is best suited to my situation?

The certification course will provide you with all the clinical basics you need to treat the most common cases in the office with confidence.
In order for the teaching content to be beneficial to you, it is recommended that you have treated at least thirty patients before following an intensive session.
N.B.: The 20% discount on all your cases in the first year will be effective even if you already have an IDS.

What is the clinical support?

A clinical support group is created and dedicated to each session via the What’s App.
You can thus share your current cases with Drs. Couchat and Sabouni who can guide you and give you their expert advice during and also after your training since this support remains active for six months.

What kind of reimbursement can I expect?

The courses are referenced annually and therefore eligible for partial funding.
As soon as we receive your complete registration file, we will send you a training agreement which will allow you to submit a request for partial funding, either on the FIF-PL website if you are a liberal practitioner, or on the Actalians website via your employer if you are an employee.
The amount of the training fee varies according to your seniority and the training you have already completed during the year.
At the end of your training, you will receive a certificate of attendance and payment that you simply need to send to the organization concerned so that it can proceed with the payment of the amount granted.

Who do I contact if I have additional questions or comments?

You can reach us by email france.eumaa@gmail.com, via the contact form or by phone at +33 (0)7 63 21 89 54. We will give you an answer within 48 hours maximum.
