“The limitations of one-size-fits-all prescriptions are now gone,” says Dr. Alfred Charles Griffin III, CEO and founder of LightForce. “By enabling orthodontists to design brackets on a case-specific basis, we give them full control over their most fundamental treatment tool. This kind of flexibility has never been feasible with traditional bracket manufacturing methods.”

“Our technology is able to make brackets with the precision and consistency demanded by our profession," Griffin adds. “I’m excited to see where orthodontists take it from here. It’s not about saying here’s how to use it. We want to bring LightForce to the community asking what more can you do with it.”
