Regain Control of our Profession

The American Aligner Society was created to regain control of our profession, specifically by re-defining the use of the term “aligner” and what it includes. In reality, an “aligner” can refer to any medical device that aligns teeth, airway, jaws, and jaw joints. The Society has the responsibility to inform the public with transparent reviews and recommendations, and represents thousands of healthcare providers worldwide.

We are a group of dedicated healthcare professionals whose vision is to improve the lives of patients through early detection, prevention, and comprehensive care. We believe it is our ethical duty to promote optimal and affordable healthcare for our patients, and recommend fully transparent reviews and options to our patients and the public alike.

Why we care…

Publicly traded corporations should not be allowed to dictate, dominate, or manipulate treatment decisions for the public at large. Allowing a corporation to do so can lead to a monopoly that negatively impacts consumers and healthcare providers alike. Unfortunately, corporate-dictated care and control affects the ability to make appropriate and individual treatment decisions. Subsequently, patients and the public are led to believe that dental and medical professionals’ oversight is no longer important or deemed necessary.

As a result, dental and medical professionals no longer have the freedom to choose the best option for their patients. It is therefore the intent of the American Aligner Society to protect the dental and medical industries by keeping the public fully informed regarding corporate tactics premised mainly on financial gain.

Benefits of Membership

Benefits of Membership

The American Aligner Society provides an open forum for patients. They are able to view and better understand their providers’ clinical experience rather than biased review site platforms. This allows patients to better understand the treatment plans given to them and whether a certain procedure may or may not be appropriate for them. In addition, patients will be able to view their provider’s accomplishments, education, credentials and background in their respective industry.

The Members

Our providers have the ability to list their practice locations, years in practice, treatment options (holistic and traditional) offered, experience, knowledge base, and transparency by listing whether they receive endorsements from recommending specific services. By offering open access to the public, patients will be privy to the provider’s history, credentials and skills.

The Labs

The American Aligner Society lab portal facilitates access for members and includes best pricing options. With this information, each provider can determine the best pricing and lab specific treatment options for their patients.


About our members

The American Aligner Society aligns all medical and dental professions. We are the only fully inclusive dental organization. Our members include, but are not limited to: Orthodontists, General Dentists, TMJ specialists, Myofunctional Therapists, Physical Therapists, Physicians, Nurses and Dental Hygienists. Through a dedication to best practices we aim to secure superior results. United together, we can make a difference in patient’s smiles, their health and the lives they lead.

How it works...

By joining the American Aligner Society, our providers will secure their role in the treatment conversations. We are able to control better pricing for our participating Doctors and their patients, a membership in American Aligner Society will allow us to stand as ONE VOICE, not influenced by outside profit motives, but as American Aligner Society Members.
