Fred Joyal joins the Board of Advisors of the company that partners directly with dentists to offer clear aligner treatment of mild to severe orthodontic malocclusions. 

Orthosnap, a clear aligner system provider that partners directly with dentists, announced that Fred Joyal, co-founder of 1-800-DENTIST, has joined the company’s Board of Advisors. Orthosnap also announced the promotion of Michael Yoon to the position of CEO from his former role as the company’s president and COO. 

In addition to these leadership moves, the company announced that it has partnered with more than 1,000 dental practices across the United States. 

“Fred Joyal joins Orthosnap at a time when we’re experiencing significant growth. His guidance and insight in marketing and practice management will be invaluable, allowing us to scale in a measured way while further perfecting the services we provide,” said Yoon. “In the past two quarters we’ve doubled the number of dental practices with whom we are partnered. This rate of growth is a testament to our product and our unique doctor guided process, which delivers an aligner solution superior to anything else in the market.”

Orthosnap reportedly works closely with doctors providing treatment to patients with mild to severe malocclusions. The Orthosnap aligner system is based on an impression produced physical model and a patented pin movement system that allows for, what the company says is, more efficient and effective clear aligner therapy. 

“Orthosnap’s patented process allows for aligners that fit more accurately than products manufactured through 3D printing. By removing inaccuracies, we are creating aligners that are significantly more precise, allowing for more predictable results in a shorter period of time,” said Joyal. “Accelerated growth is on the horizon as more and more practitioners are realizing how Orthosnap can benefit their patients and help their practice become remarkable.”

According to Orthosnap, unlike direct-to-consumer products, it partners directly with dentists to ensure its users receive proper observation and treatment. The company also claims its price point is “well below other dentist-prescribed aligners.” There are no upfront costs for patients, and the company also offers step pricing, which means patients only pay for the aligners they use. 

Orthosnap recently launched a mobile app that enables doctors to conduct their clear aligner practice from their mobile devices.
