How IAS Support & Mentoring Works

Guidance on getting the best results, from world-class experts at your fingertips.

IAS Support is a secure platform, through which dentists can receive guidance, mentoring and ongoing education from a team of world-class mentors, from the initial assessment right through to completion of the case. You can get support whether you have taken one of our courses or not, just register for an IAS account here and access support.

 

 

Support is broken down into two key stages:

1. Initial suitability check or stuck?

After uploading your case images and records you will get feedback on if the case presented is suitable for treatment in the way intended with advice on how to proceed. If the case is not suitable you will learn about the alternatives for your patient with reasoning. Or you may be stuck and need a small piece of specific advice, use our experts to get you “unstuck”.

2. Ongoing complete case mentoring

Once the initial suitability of the case is confirmed you can opt to upgrade to full case mentoring. This gives you guidance throughout the case from our mentors.  Ask all the questions you want, upload progress images and receive step by step education and advice.

Is support free?

YES, if you are an IAS Member, using an IAS appliance, but if not we have summarised our rates below. Our mentors give up their time, knowledge and often evenings to ensure that everyone receives timely support and provide an in-depth level of personalised education and mentoring. In order to compensate them for their time, we charge for this service. Membership revenue helps to fund the FREE and discounted support our members receive.
