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.

While Candid isn’t the first company to make aligners, it strives to be the lowest cost and most convenient. Company founder Greenfield say, “Ultimately, we want to increase access and improve affordability to drive cost down and help people get access more frequently.”

Pricing for the kit begins at $1,900 and can be paid in monthly installments. Customers may also be reimbursed if their insurance coverage includes orthodontic care.
