The orthodontic industry is experiencing a huge increase in do-it-yourself aligner therapy, which is raising concerns among dental professionals over potential health risks from unsupervised treatment. INBRACE addresses both consumer and orthodontist needs in this evolving market, as a discrete, aesthetic and convenient solution that delivers the health benefits of light-force tooth movement. “INBRACE is a real game-changer, and this latest funding will help us ensure that every INBRACE provider can finally give their patients what they’ve always wanted – a truly invisible journey to a great new smile that is convenient and shows immediate results,” said Dr. John Pham, CEO and co-founder of Swift Health Systems. “Even with DIY orthodontic therapy on the rise, most consumers appreciate the benefits of supervised healthcare from a licensed professional. INBRACE keeps patient care in the hands of clinicians, where the overall patient experience, oral health and treatment results are always top priorities.” INBRACE truly invisible braces sit unseen behind patient teeth, leveraging an all-digital platform and innovative wire and bracket designs to create the ideal smile for each patient’s unique situation. Patented INBRACE Smartwires® are programmed using data captured from digital scans of patient teeth and automate many steps in orthodontic treatment. The INBRACE system allows patient anatomy to naturally dictate the most efficient path for all tooth movements, resulting in increased practice efficiency and reduced overall treatment time – a true win-win for patients and orthodontists. "Vivo is delighted to join the Swift Health Systems team,” said Andrew D. Goldberg, MD, principal at Vivo Capital and future Swift board member. “We believe that the advanced technologies behind INBRACE truly invisible braces will revolutionize the future of orthodontic treatment. The capital raised will enable Swift to advance the ways it supports patients and orthodontists around the globe." Joining Dr. Goldberg on the Swift board are accomplished med-tech professionals and venture capitalists Peter Moldt, PhD, partner at Novo Ventures; and Aaron Royston, MD, partner at venBio.
