Dr. Hamersky has coined the terms to be defined as follows:
|Invisodontics:||Invisodontics is the sub-specialty of orthodontics that utilizes only clear, invisible or non-visible appliances and techniques available to correct and align the teeth and dental occlusion or bite.|
|Invisodontist:||An Invisodontist is an Orthodontic Specialist also known as an Orthodontist who specializes specifically in the correction of dental malocclusions including both misalignments of the teeth and malfunction of the dental bite using only clear, invisible or non-visible orthodontic appliances and techniques.|

The Invisalign Orthodontist
The title or designation of Orthodontist or Orthodontic Specialists can only be use by a dentist who has not only completed college and 4 years of dental school, but has also completed an additional 2 to 3 years full-time residency program accredited by the ADA of advanced education in orthodontics. After receiving the additional years of training and education, an orthodontist has learned the skills that are required to treat the misalignment of teeth and facial development with Invisalign, braces, retainers and all the other methods. Only a dentist that has completed the additional years of training and education after dental school is an orthodontist.
