Grin, a comprehensive digital orthodontic platform that provides orthodontic solutions in partnership with trusted local doctors, has announced a partnership with Henry Schein Orthodontics and a new remote consultation feature. Henry Schein Orthodontics will offer the Grin Remote Monitoring Platform and Grin Remote Consultation to their orthodontic customers across the United States.
The Grin experience consists of the Grin App and Grin Scope, a US Food and Drug Administration listed medical device. Grin Remote Consultation provides orthodontists with a cost-effective alternative virtual solution to time consuming initial consults. Combined with Grin Remote Monitoring, this new feature delivers superior visibility resulting in unprecedented insights that assist doctors in cost effective lead generation along with safe and convenient care, according to the company.
The Grin Remote Consultation journey leverages Grin virtual care technology—previously reserved for Grin partner doctors and patients already engaged in orthodontic care—and now allows for a pre-treatment touchpoint. Patients can request a consultation with local participating orthodontists through a variety of channels such as participating practices’ engagement platforms or direct doctor referrals.
The Grin Scope is an orthodontist-created, proprietary device that serves as an intraoral adapter. It is designed to retract the cheeks to allow a full view of a patient’s mouth. The entire system is powered by the robust Grin App; patients are guided to self-scan their teeth for an orthodontist-ready video. Doctors receive the intraoral self-scan video of their potential patient and send back a short video analysis of the most appropriate treatment options and pathways.
