Industry Experts Dr Lou Shuman and Dr Brian Gray Join Candid Leadership

Candid has bolstered its leadership with dental industry and clear aligner experts Dr Lou Shuman and Dr Brian Gray.

Clear aligner company Candid has announced that industry experts Dr Lou Shuman and Dr Brian Gray will be joining the leadership team. Dr Shuman will be joining the team as an Executive Consultant and Chief Development Officer, while Dr Gray will be joining the team as Chief Dental Officer. Candid, which has switched to a full provider-based Ortho as a Service model, will host a variety of new features and enhancements with this bolstered leadership, according to a press release from Candid.

Candid offers a special service that will help general practitioners as well as orthodontists, according to Dr Shuman.

“Candid’s innovations, technology partnerships, and delivery of a total support model is exactly what general practitioners need right now and orthodontists will benefit by in the near future,” Dr Shuman said in the press release. “Candid’s commitment to state-of-the-art technology as witnessed by their new massive fabrication facility, superb management team, and focus on aligner quality, already make Candid a great choice for dentists, and our planned clinical upgrades will soon make that choice even easier.”

Product enhancements to come from Candid were a big draw in this decision, according to Dr Gray.

“I see so much in the works that I can’t wait to share with my patients and colleagues,” Dr Gray said in the press release. “Candid has developed a number of game-changing product enhancements and techniques that lead the clear aligner segment into a new era. I see it as Ortho 3.0, and am excited to be part of this transformational change in dental health care.”

Joining Candid with Drs Shuman and Gray are new Candid Academy Faculty member, Drs Tom Shannon and Geoffrey Skinner. Dr Ben Miraglia, DDS will also step into the role of VP of GP Clinical Education at Candid Academy.

“Sitting in a room with Candid leadership reminded me of my work with clear aligners 20 years ago,” Dr Shuman said in the press release. “Young, brilliant visionaries coming together to create a technique poised to transform the market.”
