Houston, Texas—January 11, 2012—ClearCorrect™, the manufacturer of orthodontic clear aligners (named America’s fastest-growing health company for 2011 by Inc. magazine), recently launched Phase Out™, a new project focused on making a difference.
In a post on the company’s blog, ClearCorrect CEO, Jarrett Pumphrey, said, “Five years ago, we started ClearCorrect out of a passion to help. Doctors had no choice in clear aligners, and we wanted to change that. Since then, we’ve remained focused on changing the clear aligner industry. Well, now our ambitions have grown. I’m very happy to announce Phase Out, a new ClearCorrect project we’re kicking off this year. The purpose of the project: To change the world.”
ClearCorrect’s unique phase-based approach to clear aligners is at the heart of the project: Every ClearCorrect case includes a certain number of phases (a phase is a box with 4 sets of clear aligners). More often than not, a few phases are left over at the end of treatment. Starting January 1, 2012, for each leftover phase, $20 will go toward phasing out life-impacting issues for people in need.
ClearCorrect is partnering with charity: water to launch the first of several Phase Out initiatives envisioned for the project: phase out unsafe drinking water.
“It’s unbelievable that nearly a billion people on the planet still don’t have access to something so basic as clean drinking water,” says Pumphrey. “charity: water is an incredible organization working to change that. They have a big job to do, and we want to help them.”
Through Phase Out, every time a phase is left over at the end of ClearCorrect treatment, $20 will go toward building wells and other water projects in developing nations with charity: water. One phase = one person with access to clean, safe drinking water.

About charity: water
charity: water is a non-profit organization bringing clean, safe drinking water to people in developing nations. 100%of public donations go directly to fund sustainable water solutions in areas of greatest need. Unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation cause 80 percent of diseases and kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. Children are especially vulnerable, as their bodies aren’t strong enough to fight diarrhea, dysentery and other illnesses. Just $20 can give one person access to a clean water project.
