uLab Systems™ Announces uAssist™ Treatment Planning Service for Ortho

This concierge treatment planning service from uLab Systems will let orthodontists and dentists efficiently and effectively send design and create clear aligners in 3 business days.

uLab Systemshas announced that they will be adding a new concierge treatment planning assistance service to its uSmile clear aligner system and uDesign® treatment planning software. This will allow orthodontists and dentists to communicate and assist in aligner treatment plans, according to a press release from the company. The uAssist service allows orthodontists to review case designs, make adjustments, return it for changes, or to order the final clear aligner. These adjustments are made within 2 review sessions per case, and are said to be returned in less than 3 days.

This streamlined system is designed to make orthodontic practice quicker and more efficient without compromising on quality, according to founder and chief technology officer at uLab Charlie Wen.

“We understand orthodontists need to have a balance of efficiency and control in order to provide the best care to their patients,” Wen said in the press release. “While some orthodontists will choose to plan their own treatments, we are providing a planning assistance option that has not been available in the market before; the best of both options in one aligner platform. If orthodontists encounter higher volumes, staffing challenges or an unusually complex case, our team is just a button away.”

All treatment plans done through uAssist must be reviewed and approved by the treating orthodontists.
