Western Dental & Orthodontics, one of the nation’s largest dental providers with 324 affiliated offices throughout the United States, announced the launch of its ClearArc orthodontic aligners which will be available exclusively at Western Dental locations. It is being rolled out to 233 California offices in January and to offices in Texas, Arizona, and Nevada in February.
In a press release, the company says ClearArc is the result of extensive research and testing to develop an affordable clear aligner for consumers. It will be available for 40% less than the leading brand aligners, according to the company. Western Dental orthodontists will personally evaluate and treat patients.
“As the leading provider of orthodontics in the country, we’re in a unique position,” said Dr John Luther, chief dental officer at Western Dental. “Every ClearArc patient is evaluated for treatment in a personal exam by an orthodontist, which isn’t the case with leading competitors. This quality control measure helps ensure that patients are suitable candidates for aligners before spending their hard-earned dollars.”
According to the company, ClearArc uses a groundbreaking technology called ClearWear™that makes the aligners effective with fewer, if any, attachments. They are also stain resistant and virtually invisible.
“A lot of thought and consumer testing went into the development of ClearArc to create a superior product that costs less,” said Eric Pellkofer, vice president-orthodontic operations. “Our patients also appreciate the flexible financing options and the confidence that comes from being evaluated in a personal visit with one of our orthodontists.”
