Candid brought on Brian Gray, DDS, a veteran of dentistry and veteran of the clear aligner industry to be its chief dental officer.

Brian Gray, DDS, is joining Candid as the company’s chief dental officer to help with the company’s efforts to provide clear aligners to dental professionals.

Gray is a fellow in five academies and a master in the Academy of General Dentistry, where he’s also been awarded the Lifelong Leadership and Service Recognition—bestowed on fewer than 200 dentists since its inception.

Candid isn’t Gray’s first clear aligner partnership. Until recently, he served as a global and North American founding faculty member at a major clear aligner company. Working with Candid, Gray will help shape the company’s approach to treatment, education, and growth.

“I worked with clear aligner companies for over 23 years,” says Gray. “I’m realigning with Candid because competitors don’t have the same cohesive team or commitment to innovation that Candid does.”

Dr. Gray will find no shortage of innovation at Candid. The company is experiencing explosive growth—with a 500% increase in new providers through 2022—and its pipeline of product enhancements is expected to bring its clinical partners even more convenience and control over their clear aligner cases.

“Bringing Dr. Gray to Candid is like signing the top draft pick and a top-performing coach at the same time. As Chief Dental Officer, Dr. Gray will engage our CandidPro partners while also guiding the evolution of our clinical features,” said Nick Greenfield, chief executive officer. “Our collaboration has already yielded great results, and we’re looking forward to working together over the coming years.”
