The TCO course can be taken as a generic version or as an Invisalign-specific version. Units 1,2 and 4 are the same for both qualifications. The difference lies in Unit 3.
Unit 3 is mainly about creating communication tools to help explain treatments to patients. Unit 3 in the Aligner TCO version is specific for Invisalign and guides the student through the many resources available on this topic. If the practice is doing a lot of Invisalign and would like the TCO to be discussing Invisalign most of the time, then I would recommend the Aligner TCO qualification. This will give the TCO the best chance of being very knowledgeable about Invisalign as quickly as possible.
Unit 3 in the generic version is not treatment specific. If the practice is providing a mix of services (such as implants, restorative, endodontics) then it may be a better idea to enrol on the generic version. In this version, the student will need to do the research (in combination with the dentist) on the various forms of treatments for Unit 3.
There is nothing to stop the student applying for the Aligner TCO version and then creating their own communication tools for the other services, of course.
Invisalign patients who go through a comprehensive consent/ethical sales process are more likely to:
The foundation of great consent is the quality of the relationship between the patient and the practice. A well-trained, confident Invisalign TCO is the best person to build this relationship and boost your consent and ethical sales process.
Dr Andy Toy has created the world’s first TCO qualification dedicated to the ethical selling of Invisalign.
This practical online qualification is designed to train your Invisalign™ TCO on:
Each module has exercises and an assignment that will automatically improve the TCO’s knowledge, skills and understanding. Our team of GDC registered tutors are on hand to guide them every step of the way.

And, once they have successfully completed their assignments, the Invisalign TCO will gain an enormous boost to their confidence when they receive their Advanced Diploma Certificate. They will be a QUALIFIED Invisalign TCO!
