Royal Philips, a global leader in health technology, and Candid Care Co,* creator of the CandidPro orthodontic platform, has announced their partnership to advance the efficiency and effectiveness of orthodontic care. Philips Sonicare is one of the most recommended power toothbrush brands among US dental professionals. CandidPro makes clear aligners convenient for doctors and patients through a category-defining integration of clinical support, industry-leading technology, and white-glove service. This new collaboration is designed to provide dental professionals with an extended integrated oral health-care offering, including orthodontic treatments alongside teeth whitening.
Philips will support CandidPro to accelerate the development of its professional network and service platform. Together, the companies will set up continuous education initiatives for dental professionals, highlighting the importance of a total oral care approach, combining orthodontics with periodontic, restorative, functional, and esthetic care.
“The importance of healthy teeth and gums is a given, but for many people the confidence that comes from having the smile they want is also an important part of their lives. As part of our commitment to expanding our scope in the oral health-care space and building on our strong partnership with dental professionals, we are pleased to have found the right partner in CandidPro so we can expand Philips Sonicare’s leadership beyond our existing solutions, connecting consumers and professionals to underpin our shared mission to provide the best oral care for patients,” said Deeptha Khanna, chief business leader personal health at Philips.
“Our goal is to make the highest quality care accessible, approachable, and achievable for dental professionals and their patients by leveraging best-in-class technology and a game-changing approach to partnership. That means more confidence in their treatment plans, more accurate aligners, and more convenient and engaging patient experiences. Partnering with Philips means providing our CandidPro doctors with a more comprehensive platform that helps them treat more patients and save more time, and drive more efficiency,” said Nick Greenfield, chief executive officer at Candid.
Celebrating 30 years this year, Philips Sonicare has deep clinical knowledge, a broad oral care offering, and a strong network of dental professionals. Philips' latest innovation is its Philips Sonicare 9900 Prestige power toothbrush, which uses personalized human-led technology to help people get the best results when brushing.
CandidPro’s total orthodontic system makes clear aligners easy for doctors, ensuring they have more control in treating cases and giving them a comprehensive white-glove support. Through CandidPro’s AI-enabled CandidMonitoring technology, doctors and patients alike benefit from the company's clinical support and convenient treatment approach.
Together, Philips Sonicare and CandidPro empower dental practitioners to offer their patients straighter, cleaner, healthier smiles via an integrated care journey, including the potential for one-click integration of at-home Zoom whitening and CandidPro aligners. The two companies are committed to delivering the best complete oral care solutions to patients through professional dental services.
