ClearCorrect said that it is accelerating its manufacturing turnaround time to standardize the time from case approval to shipping in 10 days.
The shortened turnaround time will allow ClearCorrect clinicians to quickly provide their patients with aligners and reduce the time required to begin treatment, the company said, meeting clinician needs for faster service and patient needs for more confident smiles.
ClearCorrect continues to regionalize its manufacturing, placing its end products closer to the user, the company said. For patients in the United States and Canada, aligners have always been manufactured solely in Texas.
United States production allows for rapid delivery, ClearCorrect said, while also guaranteeing that all products meet the highest-quality benchmarks. The company also has expanded its manufacturing sites to Brazil and Germany.
“With COVID-19 vaccinations increasing and mask mandates being lifted, many people are telling me that they can’t wait to smile again, but want that smile to be healthy and perfect,” said Jennifer Derse, DDS, founder of Espire Dental.
“My practices have seen a significant increase in the number or appointments for teeth straightening as people take steps to make sure their smile is ready for the post-mask world,” Derse continued.
“ClearCorrect’s commitment to a rapid turnaround time helps us get patients quickly into clear aligners, so that they can remove their mask with the confidence of a healthy new smile,” she said.
“ClearCorrect was founded by a dentist, harnessing innovation in order to equip clinicians to better meet the needs of their patients. This mandate has always been central to our vision,” said Christophe Carsault, ClearCorrect vice president of orthodontics, North America.
“As more and more North Americans choose clear aligners, we understand the importance of rapid delivery so that they are able to quickly see results and achieve an improved smile,” Carsault said.
“By committing to a standard 10-day manufacturing turnaround time, ClearCorrect is raising the bar for the entire clear aligner industry and opening up new options to patients,” he said.
