For the past 20 years, “invisible aligners” – dental treatment designed to make an attractive smile available to everyone – has been one of the fastest-growing sectors in medicine, as this innovative technology transcends the field of traditional orthodontia, with its brackets and wires. At this pivotal time in the field of dentistry, a three-year-old company – Simple Aligners — is poised to serve consumers and dentists in an unprecedented way. The vision for this new company is the result of company founder Bruce Goldblatt’s 30 years of experience with two of the leading companies in the growing field. He was convinced that the invisible aligner field lacked a company was responsive to both the consumer and the dentist, and he realized it was time for a major paradigm shift.
Now, with more than 300 doctors in the company’s nationwide network, the future looks as dazzling as the brightest smile. Following it’s launch in 2019, the company has enjoyed steady growth — despite the global pandemic. In addition, Simple Aligners is poised to serve consumers on a global scale. It is estimated that 60 percent of the world’s population suffers from problems of malocclusion or misalignment of teeth, and more than 300 million people could benefit from straightening their teeth.
