I was thinking of getting invisalign, but wondered if I’d have to see an orthodontist?

No, you do not have to see an orthodontist for invisalign. Many general dentists are qualified to handle your orthodontic needs, including not just invisalign, but braces as well.
Each dentist is a little different with how they handle it. Some do it themselves. Others, share their practice with an orthodontist who comes in once a week.
I’d start with talking to your family dentist. If he doesn’t place invisalign, he can certainly recommend you to someone who does.
