Henry Schein will offer its orthodontic network the Grin Remote Monitoring Platform and Grin Remote Consultation. 

The digital orthodontic platform company Grin announced its new partnership with Henry Schein, as well as a new Remote Consultation feature. Henry Schein will offer the Grin Remote Monitoring Platform and Grin Remote Consultation to their doctor network across the United States.

The Grin experience consists of the Grin App and Grin Scope, which is an FDA listed medical device. 

Remote Consultation provides orthodontists with an alternative virtual solution to initial consults. According to Grin, when combined with Grin Remote Monitoring, this new feature delivers superior visibility resulting in unprecedented insights that assist doctors in cost effective lead generation along with safe and convenient care. 

With Grin Remote Consultation, patients can request a consultation with local participating orthodontists through a variety of channels such as participating practices’ engagement platforms or direct doctor referrals. 

During the consultation, patients can use the orthodontist-created Grin Scope, a proprietary device that serves as an intraoral adapter. It is designed to retract the cheeks to allow a full view of a patient’s mouth. The entire system is powered by the Grin App; patients are guided to self-scan their teeth for an orthodontist-ready video. Doctors receive the intraoral self-scan video of their potential patient and send back a short video analysis of the most appropriate treatment options and pathways. 

“Consultations are a critical, yet costly step in the process of generating new business and establishing trustworthy doctor-patient relationships. They have the potential to eat up a patient’s valuable time and can be financially inefficient for orthodontists,” said Grin CEO Adam Schulhof, DMD. “We listened to Grin network members, including our new partner Henry Schein, that virtual consultations would address the desire to develop leads while adhering to today’s safety requirements. We’re committed to helping orthodontists generate new opportunities and are excited to work with Henry Schein to provide practitioners nationwide the innovative tools necessary to increase convenience and cost competitiveness.”

“At Henry Schein Orthodontics, we are constantly on the lookout for innovative solutions for our customers,” said Brian Brady, vice president of sales at Henry Schein Orthodontics. “We are delighted to partner and distribute the Grin Remote Monitoring Platform that will aid our doctors and customers alike with minimal touch orthodontics.”
