Technological advancements in recent years have led to the growth of teledentistry and DIY treatment plans. For people seeking orthodontic care regularly, having a convenient option available can come in handy because they can schedule remote appointments with their orthodontists and receive the same quality care they've always had.

Candid works with orthodontists to help them provide better orthodontic care to patients through aligner therapy and remote monitoring. Candid also helps orthodontists get proper diagnostic records so they can provide better treatment plans for their patients. It’s a win-win.
