Candid aims to democratize access to orthodondic services, letting customers order low-cost dental aligners, an alternative to braces, without ever having to make an in-office visit, and conducting checkups and consultations virtually

Getting teeth aligned formerly involved multiple trips to the dentist and possibly expensive, clunky braces. With consumers increasingly seeking at-home, on-demand treatments, dental startup Candid is accordingly providing patients with a sleek aligning mold and dental checkups from the convenience of their home.

Patients use a kit from Candid to take a mold of their teeth, then and also take multiple pictures that are sent to a licensed dentist in their state. The mold is used to create a custom 3D-printed aligner, which the company will send to patients to use. Checkups are performed every few months through images and online consultations.
