The My Smile Consult™ interactive consultation tool from Ormco Corp, Orange, Calif, has been named a merit winner in the 2015 Digital Health Awards, hosted by the Health Information Resource Center (HIRC), Seattle.

According to the HIRC, recipients of the Digital Health Award are chosen based on content, format, overall quality, and ability to reach and capture the targeted health audience. Honorees are selected based on their ability to attract and hold user interest, value to overall public health interest, and ability to stimulate the appropriate action from users.

“This acknowledgement from the Digital Health Awards is a true honor, and we hope doctors and patients alike continue to benefit from My Smile Consult,” said Patrik Eriksson, president of Ormco. “The consultation process is arguably one of the most important touch-points that can help earn a patient’s trust and business. By leveraging our award-winning consultation tool, orthodontists can grow their practices and get patients excited about their orthodontic journey and the treatment’s finish line that includes a new, beautiful, life-changing smile.”

Introduced in 2015, the My Smile Consult is an interactive and customizable online patient education tool that helps prospective patients understand orthodontic treatment advancements. To help differentiate and promote an orthodontic practice, My Smile Consult also can be customized to include a practice’s logo, contact information, patient photographs, and testimonials.
