This is the first year that uLab Systems has earned placement on the Inc. 5000 list; number 12 out of all health product companies, 9 in the state of Tennessee, 2 in Memphis, and 764 of all companies listed.

“We are proud that our goal to provide innovative products for orthodontists has enabled our rapid growth and placement on this prestigious list of companies,” says Amir Abolfathi, chief executive officer and co-founder. “Our recent product launches of uDesign 7 and the uAssist service, along with our expansion to Australia and New Zealand are evidence that we truly want to make a difference in the global aligner market by providing a flexible and efficient product platform that empowers orthodontists to make the best clinical decisions for their patients.”

uLab Systems was founded in 2015 and is the creator of the uSmile clear aligner system and the uDesign treatment planning software. The most recent addition of the uAssist treatment planning assistance service now allows orthodontists ultimate flexibility to treatment plan cases for their aligner patients; plan the case themselves or send it to a licensed team of orthodontists and dentists for assistance in less than 72 hours.

With options for in-office printing or ordering uSmile aligners from the US manufacturing facility, combined with new treatment planning options, pay-per-aligner pricing structure, and best-in-class delivery times, uLab is the most versatile aligner platform on the market for orthodontists.

“The accomplishment of building one of the fastest-growing companies in the U.S., in light of recent economic roadblocks, cannot be overstated,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that have established themselves through innovation, hard work, and rising to the challenges of today.”
