Made by orthodontists, for a superior patient experience.
When we looked at the landscape of available treatment options, we realized that patients were being asked to make too many compromises. So we set out to create a system that was not only more efficient, more convenient, and more aesthetically pleasing, it would also allow patients to see results as quickly as they appeared.
Using advanced technology and calling on the talents of a diverse team of orthodontists, bone biologists, computer scientists, engineers, and designers, InBrace is helping people everywhere reclaim their self-confidence every day.
Changing the face of orthodontics.
We aren’t here to repeat what’s already been said. We’re here to change the face of orthodontics – one mouth at a time. We’re revolutionizing orthodontic technology, transforming not only how teeth are adjusted, but the entire patient experience.
How it works. How it feels. How it looks. Starting from day one. Because everyone deserves to feel confident sharing their truest selves with the world.
We live by our values:
We go above and beyond.
Operate with integrity.
We get it done.
