Question Invisalign by general dentist

There are some general dentists in my area that offer Invisalign treatment. Does anyone know if it would be cheaper or if treatment would differ to go with them than an orthidontist?

My dentist did my invisilign for me and the total cost was about $4800, before the discount I got with a special dental card I applied for.

Some people will say that you should go to an ortho, that they are more experienced, but I just went to my dentist. They have to go through a certain certification training in order to do invisalign so I'm confident they've learned what they need to.
As far as cost, It doesn't matter, the dentist or ortho is going to charge you what they want to. My dentist is a bit pricey and for an 8 month treatment plan it's still gonna cost me $5500, but whatever, I want invisalign so I will pay.
Still eagerly awaiting my aligners!!!
