Thanks Mark   - For the info on Suresmile I don't think we even have access to this in Australia. But I would love to hear your thoughts on the intra-oral scanner can this replace impressions?  Perhaps they should just market this alone.

I agree that some times technology is more important to the technology company than it is to the consumer.  On the other hand, who among us would like to go back to zero zero edgewise brackets and bend in everything that was needed for a good result.  That was a technology that the profession welcomed even though I know of two world class orthodontists that still use a nonstraight wire edgewise appliance.
I agree with your comments regarding using skills and sound biomechanical princples.  On the other hand, if hard work can be replaced with hard thinking/improved technology than I am all for it, all other things being equal.
