Candid and SoftSmile will team up to provide enhanced orthodontic treatment planning solutions through CandidPro’s platform.
Candid has announced a new strategic partnership with orthodontic software company SoftSmile Inc. Through this partnership, Candid’s orthodontic platform, CandidPro, will now have SoftSmile’s VISION treatment planning software incorporated in, allowing providers to leverage these tools to make treatment more accessible, according to a press release from the companies.
VISION is a United States Food and Drug Administration-cleared treatment planning solution that utilizes artificial intelligence (AI) to offer orthodontists a variety of vital features such as automated segmentation and staging optimization that are said to reduce treatment planning time up to 95%. Combined with CandidPro’s enhanced features, this partnership will allow for the best patient care, according to Candid’s Chief Dental Officer, Dr Brian Gray.
“VISION is a true differentiator for CandidPro and is a great example of our commitment to offering the best possible clear aligner treatment options to dental professionals,” Dr Gray says in the press release. “The renderings are precise, the experience is fluid, and the automations should save our doctors even more clinical time.”
CandidPro will also include VISION features such as bite ramps shift, automated attachments placement, AI-powered staging optimization, multiple attachment types, 3D controls, robust treatment planning, CBCT integration, matching, and other features into its line of products, per the press release.
“CandidPro and SoftSmile are both riding the same wave of innovation,” Candid’s CEO, Nick Greenfield, says. “More importantly, both are focused on listening to doctors’ needs and generating products they love to use. We’re thrilled to see what we can accomplish together.”
