WROCŁAW, Poland: Align Technology, known for its Invisalign system of clear aligners, iTero intra-oral scanners and exocad CAD/CAM software, has announced the opening of its new training centre for Invisalign-trained dentists in Wrocław. This is a further investment in its facilities in the city—a treatment planning centre for prescribed Invisalign treatments, the first Invisalign manufacturing facility in Europe and commercial offices. The long-term commitment to the Polish market reflects the company’s support to Invisalign-trained dentists in Poland and throughout Europe and to education and digitalisation of the dental industry to help dentists transform smiles and change lives.
The new training centre will provide ongoing dedicated clinical education programmes for dental professionals in the region and highlight the benefits of integrating Align’s digital solutions into their practices. The courses will give participants the opportunity to connect with their peers, as well as to exchange knowledge on Invisalign cases and digitalisation of their practices.
The official opening ceremony on 6 July was attended by over 50 guests, including Invisalign clinical customers and members of dental associations. The guests took part in presentations, a workshop and a ribbon cutting ceremony in celebration of the triple advantage of having an Invisalign treatment planning centre, 3D production facility and commercial operations in Wrocław—dubbed the “capital of smiles” of Poland.
“We are proud to see the development and expansion of Align Technology and to reach another milestone in the Polish market,” said Jakub Wróbel, general manager for Poland at Align Technology. “The Wrocław facility is unique in its set-up, combining treatment planning, exclusively Polish doctor support and production site—all in one location, now with the addition of a training centre—accessible to doctors for further clinical education and experiential exchange. Our training agenda is designed to maximise the convenience and quality of education of doctors, enabling them to successfully apply the latest digital technologies in dentistry and orthodontics,” he continued.
“Partnering with doctors is paramount to Align, as we strongly believe in doctor-driven patient care and the positive impact of peer-to-peer advocacy to further expand digitisation and Invisalign treatment across the profession. The new training centre in Poland reflects our engagement in education and continuous product improvement that translates into patient satisfaction and growth of our brand,” said Markus Sebastian, senior vice president of eastern Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EEMA) at Align Technology. “In Europe and EEMA alone, we run over 1,000 educational events per year, which is one of the things our doctor customers value most in working with us. Together, we are building the future of digital dentistry in Europe,” he added.
Dr Amadeusz Kuźniarski, education director of the Uniwersyteckie Centrum Stomatologiczne, a university dental care centre, in Wrocław, concluded: “Education equips doctors with the knowledge and skills to reach their highest potential to deliver exceptional care, drive innovation and positively impact patients’ outcomes. Only by educating and inspiring future generations can doctors continue playing a vital role in creating awareness and shaping a brighter, healthier future.”
Align supports dentists in improving their skills in modern orthodontics by providing opportunities for continuous learning and networking with leading industry professionals. The company’s innovation and technology leadership over the last 26 years has been driven by the Invisalign system, used by dental professionals to transform smiles and change the lives of 15.1 million patients to date.
