Dutch health technology company Royal Philips has teamed up with US-based dental equipment manufacturer Candid Care, to advance the solutions for orthodontic care.

Candid Care’s CandidPro orthodontic platform offers convenient clear aligners, and Philips provides Sonicare brand of Electric tooth brushes in the US.

The collaboration aims to provide dental professionals with an integrated oral healthcare offering, which includes orthodontic treatments along with teeth whitening.

It will leverage Philips Sonicare’s more than three decades of expertise, network of dental professionals, knowledge, and resources.

CandidPro is enabled to build its professional network and service platform, with support from Philips.

The two companies will carry out education initiatives focusing total oral care approach, combining orthodontics, periodontic care, restorative and functional care and aesthetic care.

Philips personal health chief business leader Deeptha Khanna said: “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 healthcare 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.”

Philips said that its Sonicare brand has in-depth clinical knowledge, and a wide-ranging oral care offering, with a strong network of dental professionals.

Its latest power toothbrush, the Philips Sonicare 9900 Prestige leverages personalised human-led technology to provide best results to its users.

Candid Care’s total orthodontic system enables the doctors to have more control in treating patients with clear aligners, and offers a white-glove support.

The company’s AI-powered CandidMonitoring technology helps doctors and patients to benefit from CandidPro’s clinical support and treatment approach.

Together, Philips Sonicare and CandidPro will enable dental practitioners to provide their patients with straight, clean, and healthy smiles through an integrated care journey.
