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 three 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. Case plan / Treatment set up check

Once the initial suitability of the case is confirmed you can opt to upgrade to having further advice and guidance on your proposed treatment (digital or not) plan set up. Upload any further information and your mentor will mentor you through your treatment plan set up ready to send to the lab or start implementing depending on the clinical situation.

3. Ongoing complete case mentoring

After you have confirmed your plan you can upgrade to receive ongoing case support throughout treatment. Asking for appointment-by-appointment education and advice. If it’s an orthodontic case that you are treating, this support takes you right through to retention.

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.
