Clint Carnell has joined InBrace, makers of Smartwire, as its CEO to help lead it through the next growth phase.

InBrace, the company that makes Smartwire, announced that Clint Carnell has joined as chief executive officer to lead the company through the next growth phase.

InBrace is accelerating growth with the recent launch of the company’s Generation-2 Smartwire, sales force expansion, and the launch of InStudio training and experience centers throughout North America.

“Clint and I have worked closely during his time as a board member,” said John Pham, DDS, MS, co-founder of InBrace. “Clint’s commercial and public company experience are additive to our mission and are complementary to my expertise. This fits with my vision to elevate the orthodontic experience, and I’m thrilled for what this transition allows InBrace to accomplish.”

InBrace recently raised over $100 million in its Series D financing from funds and accounts managed by BlackRock, Endeavour Vision, Farallon Capital Management, Marshall Wace, MVM Partners, Novo Holdings, RTW Investments., Soleus Capital, venBio, and Vivo Capital.

InBrace was invented and founded by Pham and Hongsheng Tong, DDS, who set out to find a healthier and more efficient teeth-straightening system to treat children with severe cleft lip and palate. They partnered with USC and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, and InBrace filed the first application patent of its extensive patent portfolio in 2012.

InBrace’s Smartwire is designed using each patient’s unique toothprint. The technology puts the orthodontic experience on autopilot, with hidden treatment that requires less work for patients and clinicians.
