Braces On Demand secures investment to scale 3D tech nationally, alongside second industry innovation award
FDA-approved in December 2020, new platform positions to revolutionize orthodontic industry
HICKSVILLE, N.Y. — Orthodontists across the U.S. can now control their own manufacturing and supply chains with Braces On Demand, an online 3D printing platform for completely customizable in-office production of orthodontic brackets and other appliances.
The best-in-class 3D printing design tech allows orthodontists to craft their own appliances, all in-office, saving time and money with every treatment.
Founder-funded since 2019, this first round of angel investments (undisclosed) allow Braces On Demand (BOD) to reach and work with more than 11,000 orthodontists in the U.S.
“With Braces On Demand, we’ve eliminated supply chain issues and backorders, while gaining workflow efficiencies and cost savings,” said Dr. Scott Frey of Hatcher & Frey Orthodontics. “Using high-quality orthodontic devices has never been easier.”
Braces On Demand has 8-million prescription options and counting, seamlessly connects directly with existing printers (print-your-own or order-by-mail both available), and can print up to 100 brackets in under 2 hours, in every shade and color. Additionally, BOD enables orthodontists to use a hybrid approach to achieve patient treatment results in less time.
Headquartered in Long Island, top BOD executives Dr. Tom Shannon and Colin Corey will present at the annual AAO (American Association of Orthodontics) conference in Miami on May 21, where the team will also be accepting their second Ortho Innovator Award.
