Invisalign-Ortho or Dentist?

Did some consults with an orthdontist and a general dentist who both have experience with invisalign. Both have good reviews. The ortho is ~2k more expensive, but man.. she knew what she was talking about: very knowledgable, no BS. The dentist however mentioned she had almost 15 years experience with invisalign. My case isn't a major misalignment of teeth.

What should I do? Ortho or Dentist and why? and yes... I know an Ortho is more experienced hands down. Should I risk it and go with a Dentist and save 2000 dollars? I know that if I go with the ortho- I would be worry free.

Help Please!!

The health of your teeth is for life. Any complications that arises may cost you dearly so IMO I would go for the Ortho and they are specifically trained for it. The dentist will probably do a good job too if she really has 15 years experience so ultimately it's up to you whether $2k is worth the peace of mind.
