OrthoFi celebrated a milestone on MLK Day, starting the service’s millionth patient and covering the patient’s treatment fee.

On Martin Luther King Jr Day, 2023, OrthoFi confirmed that the millionth patient started on its software and service platform since the product officially launched in 2014.

“Being able to say we helped a million patients across the country access and afford high-quality care is incredibly gratifying for our whole team,” says David Ternan, chief executive officer of OrthoFi. “It is a testament to the commitment to our mission to start more smiles, and to our partnership with the thousands of customers we serve.”

MLK Day is consistently the highest volume day of the year for orthodontic practices, according to OrthoFi. The millionth OrthoFi patient will be treated by Ste Marie Orthodontics, located in Opelousas, Louisiana.

Stacy Ste Marie, DDS, has been using the OrthoFi solution since 2015, and has started nearly 3,000 patients on the platform since going live. To celebrate 1 million smiles and manifest its mission, OrthoFi will be covering the patient’s treatment fee.

“We were surprised and thrilled to hear we started the1 millionth OrthoFi patient, and grateful for the offer to help our patient’s family with their treatment costs,” says Ste Marie. “I’ve been using the system in my practice since its early days, and I’ve seen it evolve a lot over the years. OrthoFi has helped my practice to grow and to streamline our operations in a significant way, even through unprecedented challenges like the COVID shutdowns a couple of years ago. My practice team and I couldn’t imagine doing what we do without it.”
