Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA), a global leader in health technology, and Candid Care Co, creator of the CandidPro orthodontic platform, announced their partnership to advance the efficiency and effectiveness of orthodontic care. The collaboration is designed to provide dental professionals with an extended integrated oral healthcare offering, including orthodontic treatments alongside teeth whitening.
By leveraging Philips Sonicare’s 30 years of expertise, its extensive network of dental professionals and its knowledge and resources, Philips will support CandidPro to accelerate the development of its professional network and service platform. Together, the companies will set up continuous education initiatives for dental professionals, highlighting the importance of a total oral care approach; combining orthodontics with periodontic care, restorative and functional care and aesthetic care.
“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,” said Deeptha Khanna, Chief Business Leader Personal Health at Philips.
“Our goal is to make the highest quality care accessible, approachable, and achievable for dental professionals and their patients by leveraging best-in-class technology and a game-changing approach to partnership. That means more confidence in their treatment plans, more accurate aligners, and more convenient and engaging patient experiences. Partnering with Philips means providing our CandidPro doctors with a more comprehensive platform that helps them treat more patients and save more time, and drive more efficiency” said Nick Greenfield, Chief Executive Officer at Candid.
