  1. Well, it sure has been a while...

    Hey guys, sorry I flaked out for the last 2(ish) years. It's been pretty crazy, but I figure you all deserve an update and anything that I have to offer.

    First off, I've completed all of my 45 original trays and just went to number 20 of 32 in my refinement set. The process has been significantly shortened by my decision to start using the Acceledent system in November of 2013. That said, as I'm coming down the home stretch, I can't really imagine not having my trays in all day. ...

  4. First Blog Post!

    Well, here goes nothing.

    Hello, everyone. I started Invisalign just under 2 weeks ago, and I'll be swapping my first trays out on Wednesday. Apparently, I'm a bit of an experimental case, my orthodontists exact words were "you're really pushing the limit of what Invisalign can do, but I'm confident it'll work and look forward to documenting your progress", so I'm a bit nervous about the whole thing, but I have confidence in the capabilities of the orthodontist I chose ...
