SprintRay partnered with Braces On Demand to enable practices to 3D-print a variety of appliances quickly in-office.

SprintRay announced a partnership with Braces On Demand, an online platform for in-office printing of orthodontic fixed appliances, to provide automated, end-to-end 3D printing solutions to improve patient treatment times and productivity for orthodontic practices.

“The orthodontic community is one of the fastest adopters of 3D printing technology, transforming highly manual processes into digital, repeatable workflows,” said Amir Mansouri, PhD SprintRay chief executive officer and co-founder “SprintRay is proud to partner with Braces On Demand to continue providing industry-leading advances in digital orthodontics and chairside dentistry through seamless solutions for doctors to efficiently and effectively treat their patients and build their practices.”

Leveraging the SprintRay 3D printing ecosystem, Braces On Demand allows orthodontists to 3D print brackets and fixed appliances in-office.

The end-to-end SprintRay orthodontic 3D printing ecosystem features Pro S series 3D printers and ProWash and ProCure 2 post-processing machines built to innovate digital dentistry and deliver clinical results.

The partnership between SprintRay 3D printing systems and materials and the Braces On Demand software enables orthodontists to 3D-print various fixed appliances in under 30 minutes, according to SprintRay.

“Most orthodontists are already printing aligners and retainers in their offices,” said Colin Corey, Braces On Demand founder and CEO. “Our agreement with SprintRay will now enable orthodontists to better utilize their in-office capabilities by allowing them to easily print a variety of fixed appliances as needed without having to hold excess inventory. SprintRay printers are incredibly fast and offer busy offices high production throughput, which can significantly improve workflow efficiency.”

The First Tray Today campaign provides SprintRay customers with in-office and digital marketing collateral to help their patients jumpstart orthodontic treatment.

The campaign aims to improve patient awareness, case acceptance, and treatment success by providing patients with same-day clear aligners delivered by 3D printing within their first visit.

First Tray Today campaign assets include:

  • A patient-facing website with a resource for patients to find orthodontists using the SprintRay 3D printing workflow for delivering same-day clear aligners.
  • In-office marketing materials to help orthodontic offices inform their patients about the ease and benefits of accepting aligner treatment.

SprintRay and Braces On Demand will present the details of these improved workflows and solutions to orthodontists for the first time at the 2023 AAO Annual Session.
