Dr. Ryan Wiesemann

“If you’re new to printing and in house aligners this course will save you a ton of trial and error. Wish I had taken this course two years ago. I would have saved thousand of dollars and hours of my own personal time.”

Dr. Thuy Do

“This course offers you the opportunity to learn how to set it up from the start and hit the road running, instead of stumbling. Worth every penny.”

Dr. Dennis Flanagan

“Hands down one of the most practical courses I have taken in a long time! If you want to learn about 3D printing and in-house aligners, sign up for the next course. You will not regret it.”

Dr. Rishi Kothari

“The course was very thorough. What I appreciate is that Jason is very honest. He says what has and what hasn’t worked. Also, it was really neat that we got a lot of insider insight into what’s coming up in the industry.”

Dr. Bill Redmond

“Two thumbs up. Way UP! Meticulous to a fault. Dr Cope’s investigation of products and systems eliminates any guess work in setting up the ideal work flow.”

Dr. Nimesh Patel

“I was hesitant in moving away from companies and attempting to do aligners on my own, but after learning in this course the techniques, different softwares and what we can do with In-house aligners. I’m now confident in tackling small to medium size cases on my own instead of sending it out”

Dr. Gustavo Salas

“The course was amazing. 100% recommend it! The customer service and level of attention makes it feel like it’s 1-on-1.”.



I don’t have time, how long is the course?

The course is 9 weeks and each week has 1.5-3 hours of content. It can be watched on a computers or mobile phones at increased speeds up to 2x.

Can staff take this course?

At this point this course is for doctors only, however we are putting together a more concise staff training course that will be available for alumni only.

Will I need to hire full time staff for this?

In short, no; unless you are short-staffed currently. I recommend starting slow and making retainers first, mastering the workflow, then progressing to light and moderate cases. This is something that most staff can handle without much difficulty.

I’m already printing and making in-house aligners. Will this course be too “beginner for me”?

Are you operating at maximum capacity? Do you know what it costs you to make each aligner? Is your process streamlined to remove all inefficiencies? Everyone who has taken this course who was more advanced in their experience, has reported considerable increases in efficiencies with their process.

I don’t have any equipment yet, but I want to start. Am I too early to take this course?

Everyone has to start somewhere. I have had some orthodontists take the course who had no scanners or printers. When they left the course, they had completely changed their mind on what they thought they should buy and it saved them time and money.

Will I need to renovate my lab?

Not necessarily. I didn’t renovate my analog lab when I converted to digital 3-4 years ago. I simply sold my analog equipment and swapped it for digital equipment. And I’ll show you exactly what I did.

I have a small lab, is it possible to do in-house aligners?

If you have enough room for a 3D printer, a thermoforming machine, a curing unit, and a wash station, you should be fine. All of this will fit into about 8 linear feet of counter space.

How much should I expect to save with in-house aligners?

I’ll show you the exact details on expenses in my cost analysis lecture. I’ve been able to decrease my aligner lab expenses by 75%. I am not in a high discount tier, so depending on your tier and discount level, your savings would be a minimum of about 60%.

Do I need to be at a certain place and time to attend the course?

No, the content of the course is unlocked weekly so that we can all follow along together and also to enhance our Facebook discussions. You can watch all the unlocked videos on demand at your own pace, anywhere and anytime as long as you have an internet connection.


From TADs to TECH

Internationally acclaimed for his pioneering research and clinical techniques on Distraction Osteogenesis and TADs, Dr. Jason B. Cope is also widely known for being a perfectionist, not only for his orthodontic cases, but for everything he does. Although his name is synonymous with TADs, he was also one of the first orthodontists to implement digital technology into his practice and to deliver a turnkey solution to in-house aligners and indirect bonding. He’s also a leader in the industry, helping multiple companies to develop digital products and software available in orthodontics today.


Dr. Cope has spent the last two and half years perfecting the digital workflow of intra-oral scanning, digital case setup, 3D printing, and fabrication/delivery of in-house aligners and indirect bonding trays. Dr. Cope wasn’t overly interested in clear aligner treatment until he felt that he could truly control every aspect of treatment and his final results. With an in-house digital workflow, that time is now. His digital learning curve came with lots of expense and trial and error, and he wants to keep you from hitting the wall by attempting to learn the process from scratch. 


During this course, Dr. Cope will show you what he considers the best in technology available and the most user-friendly software. He’ll also show you how to streamline your workflow in the most seamless manner possible so you can achieve consistent results without the frustration of the learning curve he experienced.  He uses his experience to help you to quickly incorporate digital orthodontics in your office while avoiding the mistakes he made.


It is expected that participants have a comprehensive understanding of orthodontic treatment biomechanics with at least 2 years of full-time orthodontic practice and advanced training. Participants must have an advanced understanding of aligner attachment design and placement during the treatment of full aligner cases.

You will need a modern Apple or Windows device to access the CopestheticCE website to view the streaming videos or Facebook Group. You will need a modern Windows PC to operate the software (uLab Systems) that Dr. Cope will be demonstrating. Currently, uLab is only commercially available in the US. Dr. Cope has arranged a trial use of the software for all participants. Importantly, aligner models cannot be printed outside the US. Due to the restrictions of ULab for everyone outside of the US, Dr. Cope has made arrangements with ArchForm for all new customers to get a similar trial of the software. There are not any export restrictions with ArchForm, which is pretty much available everywhere.

Please contact uLab ( and Archform ( directly to get their current computer spec requirements.

Course Description: This course will be facilitated through our virtual classroom and a private Facebook group led and moderated by Jason B. Cope, DDS, PhD, where he will teach and review all of his intellectual property on digital workflow and in-house aligner fabrication and delivery. Think of it as a live and dynamic textbook at your fingertips, in the comfort of your home, office, or mobile device without having to travel. You do not have to be present and in front of a computer at a certain time to participate. Rather, you can view the videos at your leisure throughout the week. You can review previous weeks’ content and discussion at any time. And you can watch the videos as many times as you want in the 6-month viewing period. All content will be delivered as outlined below with at least 2 submissions per week so that you can review concepts, supplemented by examples, with the opportunity for discussion and dialogue of each topic along the way during the week. After the 9-week course, the participants will remain in the Facebook study group to continue to learn and participate with their peers to further collaboration within their respective closed forum for a period of a year. New content will be delivered as it becomes relevant in the post-course Facebook group (i.e., new developments with digital workflow, aligner therapy, etc.) by Dr. Cope and others, but not on a formal basis as with the initial course.
