Co-founding the award is Align Technology, manufacturers of the clear aligner system called “Invisalign” which has been used by over 5.5 million patients across the world to improve their smile. Dr Clare was one of only three orthodontists in Europe to gain this award in 2018.
2018’s award, which was also bestowed upon some of the industry’s most esteemed orthodontists in the USA and Asia, is voted for in two competitive rounds of judging. The first round is conducted by Invisalign itself, which selected Dr Clare’s case study as part of its ‘Global Gallery’, highlighting a long list of best practice examples.
The second round was then voted for by the international orthodontic community, rating the case studies within the gallery based on broad criteria including clinical difficulty, result achieved (i.e. transformation) and quality of clinical records.
