Impress opened its 11th U.S. clinic in New York City, offering combined digital and in-person aligner treatment options.

Impress announced the opening of its clinic in New York City, marking a significant milestone as the brand’s first location in New York and 11th clinic in the U.S. 

Tennis star Paula Badosa appeared at the grand opening for the launch of her global partnership with the company. Impress currently operates in more than 160 cities across eight countries, making it one of the largest networks of orthodontic clinics in the world, with several more U.S. openings planned as part of its North American expansion.

Impress uses a treatment approach that combines advanced technology – including CBCT X-rays, 3D scanners, patented treatment planning software and in-house tools – with personalized orthodontic care. Impress combines in-person clinic visits with virtual monitoring and appointments through its mobile app, available 7 days a week.

Impress’ proprietary technology in conjunction with the application of artificial intelligence, enables its medical team to more accurately diagnose and develop highly effective treatment plans. 

The company’s AI technology combines existing tooth and root positions to anticipate movements inside the bone, allowing for faster, better, and more predictable orthodontic treatment. The system of removable aligners consists of a series of transparent splints that exert progressive pressure on the teeth. The company says it can treat virtually any case, with the average invisible aligner treatment time lasting between 6 and 12 months.

“As a leader in modern orthodontics, we are thrilled to extend our services to New York, a vibrant and diverse community that mirrors our commitment to excellence and innovation,” said Kjeld Aamodt, DDS, MS co-founder and chief orthodontist at Impress. “Our mission is to provide a personalized and transformative orthodontics experience, delivering outstanding results that positively impact our patients’ lives. We look forward to inviting New Yorkers into our beautiful new location and helping them achieve confident and healthy smiles.”

During a complimentary consultation at the clinic opening in New York, Impress patients met with an expert licensed doctor to receive a full oral health check-up before any treatment takes place. Each patient’s aligners are designed directly by company experts, using 360º X-rays and 3D intraoral scans to craft a fast and effective treatment plan. 

The Impress app then allows patients 24/7 access to their experienced medical team to serve any needs and consult patients in between face-to-face clinic appointments, ensuring minimal disruption to daily life. Patients also have access to Impress’ full global network of clinics, including Chicago, Seattle, and San Francisco in the U.S., and over 160 cities across the UK, Spain, Portugal, France, Italy, Ukraine, and Germany.

By combining technology with medical expertise to create efficiencies within the business, treatment at Impress is more affordable than with other providers, according to the company, without  compromising patient care or results. Impress also offers flexible payment plans, and accepts FSA/HSA, and insurance, including all out-of-network dental benefits like Delta Dental, Guardian, Metlife, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Aetna, Cigna and Principal.
