The app formerly known as AlignFlow is officially launching as In Hand Dental to better represent its broader range of applications, including braces, TMJ, sleep apnea, patient recall, lead generation, and practice marketing.

AlignFlow, a remote monitoring app used by dentists and orthodontists, has officially rebranded as In Hand Dental. The name change comes in advance of the American Association of Orthodontics Annual Session in Miami Beach, Fla, where In Hand Dental teams will be in attendance to roll out the new app. 

AlignFlow was initially customized for use by dental professionals to serve their aligner patients, helping to lengthen the time between their in-person appointments, and freeing up chair time for doctors and busy practices. According to the company, feedback in the last year suggested, however, that AlignFlow worked well not only with aligners, but also braces, TMJ, sleep apnea, patient recall, lead generation, and practice marketing. 

“This all-encompassing remote monitoring and teledentistry tool needed a different name, one that served the mission of putting treatment plans and systems ‘in the hands’ of the doctors and patients who use them to reach better treatment results and impact the bottom line of their practices,” says Mike Gassman, president and CEO of In Hand Health.

“If you have a teledentistry tool that can help more patients, why not have a name that represents all the benefits it offers?” Gassman continued. “I met with our sales team, talked it over with the Board of Directors, and In Hand Dental was born. It will be the same great products that so many dentists and orthodontists have come to rely on every day. Now, it just has a name that suits its many uses,” says Gassman.
