The Most Comprehensive and complete course on 3D protocols with specific focus on In-House Aligners


Jason’s course delivers what it promises – excellent in-depth presentation of materials, techniques, and application. In addition, he teaches you to do your own cost-benefit analysis to evaluate aspects of the work-flow you wish to manage in-house versus outsource. I’m looking forward to other courses he puts together with Laura – They make a great team!


New to digital workflow? This is the course you need.


This course lays out exactly what you need in order to get setup. Jason has impeccable attention to detail and provides a list that nails down every single thing you would need. I feel comfortable setting up a digital lab after being in an office with absolutely no digital technology.

Dr. CD Marti

Superb Course!


It is analytically planned and presented. Jason is a visionary and he went beyond current techniques and I was richly rewarded with the valuable information presented. Treatment time and quality of care can be tremendously improved under our control of technique, shortening treatment time, and achieving great outcomes.


A must to avoid clinical frustrations!


There are lots of wisdom and experiences Jason shared in this course. I have definitely become more conformable with IHA after taking this course. I believe it is a must for everyone decide to do IHA.. I especially like the FB forum that we get questions shared and answered. It is much better than just an online course.

Dr. Jing zhou



"My goal is to teach orthodontists to produce and deliver highly professional aligners in the shortest time, with the smallest cost and a happy staff."

Jason is a leader in the industry, helping multiple companies to develop digital products and software available in orthodontics today.


Jason has spent the last five years perfecting the digital workflow of of in-house aligners and indirect bonding trays. 


His digital learning curve came with lots of expense as well as trial and error, and he wants to keep you from hitting the wall by attempting to learn the process from scratch and without a systemizes approach.  


He’ll show you how to streamline your workflow in the most seamless manner possible so you can quickly incorporate digital orthodontics in your office without upsetting your staff or making the same mistakes he’s made. 



I don’t have time, how long is the course?

The course is 9 weeks and each week has 1.5-3 hours of content. It can be watched on computers or mobile phones and increased speeds up to 2x.


Will I need to renovate my lab?

Not necessarily. I didn’t renovate my analog lab when I converted to digital 4 years ago. I simply sold my analog equipment and swapped it for digital equipment. And I’ll show you exactly what I did.


Will I need to hire full time staff for this?

In short, no; unless you are short-staffed currently. I recommend starting slow and making retainers first, mastering the workflow, then progressing to light and moderate cases. This is something that most staff can handle without much difficulty. The step-by-step and detailed information in the course will make your staff’s life much easier. 


I’m already making in-house aligners. Will this course be too “beginner for me”?

Are you operating at maximum capacity? Do you know what it costs you to make each aligner? Is your process streamlined to remove all inefficiencies? Everyone who has taken this course who was more advanced in their experience, has reported considerable increases in efficiencies with their processes.


I don’t have any equipment yet, but I want to start, am I too early to take this course?

Everyone has to start somewhere. I have had some orthodontists take the course who had no scanners or printers. When they left the course, they had completely changed their mind on what they thought they should buy and it saved them time and money. I’ve had others who completely changed their lab layout just before starting construction because of what they learned in week one of the course.


I have a small lab, is it possible to do in-house aligners?

I you have enough room for a 3D printer, a thermoforming machine, a curing unit, and a wash station, you should be fine. All of this will fit into about 8 linear feet of counter space. Considering that some analog equipment will need to be retired, most have enough room to make it work.


How much should I expect to save in in-house aligners?

I’ll show you the exact details on expenses in my cost analysis lecture. I’ve been able to decrease my aligner lab expenses by 70%. I am not in a high discount tier, so depending on your tier and discount level, your savings would be a minimum of about 60%.


Do I need to be at a certain place and time to attend the course?

No, the content of the course is unlocked weekly so that we can all follow along together and to enhance our Facebook discussions, but you can watch all the videos on demand at your own pace, anywhere and anytime as long as you have an internet connection.


Can staff take this course?

At this point this course is for doctors only. However, we are putting together a staff training that is more concise and will only be available for alumni staff.



It is expected that participants have a comprehensive understanding of orthodontic treatment biomechanics with at least 2 years of full-time orthodontic practice and advanced training. Participants must have an advanced understanding of aligner attachment design and placement during the treatment of full aligner cases.

You will need a modern Apple or Windows device to access the CopestheticCE website to view the streaming videos or Facebook Group. You will need a modern Windows PC to operate the software (uLab Systems) that Dr. Cope will be demonstrating. Currently, uLab is only commercially available in the US and Canada. Dr. Cope has arranged a trial use of the software for all participants. Importantly, aligner models cannot be printed outside the US or Canada. Due to the restrictions of uLab for everyone outside of the US. Dr. Cope has made arrangements with ArchForm for all new customers to get a similar trial of the software. There are not any export restrictions with ArchForm, which is pretty much available everywhere.

Please contact uLab ( and Archform ( directly to get their current computer spec requirements.

Course Description: This course will be facilitated through our virtual classroom and a private Copesthetic CE Social group led and moderated by Jason B. Cope, DDS, PhD, where he will teach and review all of his intellectual property on digital workflow and in-house aligner fabrication and delivery. Think of it as a live and dynamic textbook at your fingertips, in the comfort of your home, office, or mobile device without having to travel. You do not have to be present and in front of a computer at a certain time to participate. Rather, you can view the videos at your leisure throughout the week. You can review previous weeks’ content and discussion at any time. And you can watch the videos as many times as you want in the 6-month viewing period. All content will be delivered as outlined below with at least 2 submissions per week so that you can review concepts, supplemented by examples, with the opportunity for discussion and dialogue of each topic along the way during the week. After the 9-week course, the participants will remain in the Facebook study group to continue to learn and participate with their peers to further collaboration within their respective closed forum for a period of a year. New content will be delivered as it becomes relevant in the post-course Copesthetic CE Social group (i.e., new developments with digital workflow, aligner therapy, etc.) by Dr. Cope and others, but not on a formal basis as with the initial course.

Jason’s hard work and attention to detail is amazing!


The whole course walked you through the printing of aligners in a way that felt comprehensive without dumbing the whole process down. I looked forward to watching the lectures and would thoroughly recommend this to doctors wanting to get started in the world of 3D printed aligners. Why reinvent the wheel when Dr. Cope has already got the alloy rims waiting for you!


Comprehensive, excellent content!


This is a must do for launching into in-house aligners. We have been building this part of our practice up over the last year and this allowed us to really go to the next level. Thank you Jason for providing so much excellent and useful information.

Break free from aligner companies and become your own! 


Thank you Jason, this course is worth so much more than what we paid for it. The material you have put together is absolutely phenomenal. I’m completely rearranging the way we do aligners in our office, and the plan is to go full in-house by the end of the year. I highly recommend this course. I couldn’t be happier and more satisfied!


A must if you want to succeed at in-house aligners!


Dr. Cope breaks it all down, presents his processes in a clear, easy to follow manner. His thoroughness is quite amazing – a peek behind the scenes of a practice successfully providing high-level clear aligner care at a fraction of the price of the big players in the marketplace. There are hundreds of tips from what to purchase, comparisons of software systems, and printers. Fantastic information!


Excellent Online Course!


I have been interested in Dr Cope’s In-House Aligner course for a long time. I am so glad that I can attend the course online and it is above my expectation. Thank you!
