Hi, I am female and from England (hence the price above). I am currently undergoing this treatment. I am having my first set of aligners in 5 weeks. Overall I have been very impressed with my dentist. I do not believe he is an orthodontist but he specialises in this treatment.
You have to remember that the orthodontist/dentist is purely the middle man in this. They can only take impressions of your teeth and assess your progress. It is actually the company invisaligns' responsibility for your treatment, the dentist has no control over your actual treatment.
I will update you more when i start the treatment!!

I now have my first aligner in!! It's nearly been 24 hours since fitting, and so far so good! Mild discomfort (to be expected, I am shifting my teeth after all) but nothing to write home about! I am really impressed with how they fit in my mouth and how thin the plastic on the brace is. I do have a slight lisp though (! which my partner finds hilarious) but the more i practice talking the quicker it is going away :D so no real problems there.
The one thing I am finding a bit annoying is having to take it out whenever I eat (sounds silly and I was aware of this beforehand) however, I can't just eat whenever or wherever i want now, as it means sticking my fingers in my mouth to pull out the brace, and in some public settings this is not something you want to be doing... but all in all I am so happy with it - and if my treatment is successful I will recommend to anyone who wants to try it.
I have taken before pics from most angles and also with the aligner on which i will publish online when i get a chance.
I hope my review is helpful, and I will update as appropriate!
