In Hand Dental announced a partnership with Five Star Ortho Lab to create a branded remote patient monitoring app.

In Hand Dental, a remote monitoring app and complete teledentistry platform used by dentists and orthodontists, is expanding by entering into a partnership with Five Star Orthodontic Laboratory & Supply.

Five Star Ortho Lab utilizes the line approach to appliance fabrication. Each tech is specialized in one or more departments, and each appliance from Five Star Ortho Lab undergoes quality control after each step of fabrication to provide for a much more consistent, quality appliance for doctors and patients.

Five Star Ortho Lab will provide their doctors/practitioners with specific treatment templates including activities, resources, and survey questions, for better ease of dental treatments.

Five Star Ortho Lab co-owners Bobby Middle and Jeff Loch comment on the partnership:

“By partnering with In Hand Dental, we have found a unique platform for our doctors to incorporate remote patient monitoring primarily for our Tri-aligner clear aligner system. Working with the In Hand Dental team, we know that we can leverage their technology to include monitoring for orthodontic expander, sleep and TMJ appliances,” said Five Star Ortho Lab co-owners Bobby Middle and Jeff Loch. “This gives us a unique and powerful solution to help our doctors provide a better patient experience while increasing their practices’ efficiency and profitability. We are extremely excited about this opportunity to bring In Hand Dental to our Five Star client base.”

Five Star Ortho Lab elected to have its own branded app, so now Five Store Ortho Essentials is available in mobile app stores for download..

In Hand Dental can build and create a branded app for either a B2B or B2C business model, with the intention to allow our partners to not only monitor specific treatments with a patented compliance scorecard but to also allow for lead generation activities by promoting their own app in their marketing efforts.

The branded app model creates the opportunity for the practice to track lead generation and separate their brand from the competition.

“We are excited to engage with Five Star Ortho Lab and their Tri-aligner solution that provides more flexibility and reduced need for refinements than other aligner systems,” said Michael Gassman, In Hand Dental chief executive officer. “Integrating our In Hand Dental platform and workflow with their superior product line provides a tremendous value add for their aligner customers.”

Five Star Orthodontic Lab & Supply, Inc. is an orthodontic lab in North Texas that has been servicing the orthodontic community for over 30 years with orthodontic products and services.
