I have an opportunity to leave the country for a month and a half in France. I’m about 4 weeks into my invisalign treatment. What do I do if I’m supposed to go to my dentist’s every two weeks for new aligners?

It’s perfectly fine for you to travel as long as your Invisalign treatment is proceeding normally. Your dentist can simply provide you with the number of aligners you’ll need while you’re away. Be sure he or she clearly labels the order your aligners should be worn.
If you find you run into difficulty while you’re away contact your dentist and he can give you further instructions.
I’ll try not to be jealous of your trip.
