Here’s a brief description provided by People & Practice:
In this 30 minute podcast we speak with Kevin Dillard, who is the founder of Clear Blue Smiles, a direct-to-consumer aligner company that has solved a problem many orthodontists and consumers are concerned about: professional orthodontic oversight. Clear Blue Smiles utilizes an orthodontist in every case using Direct Monitoring to remotely monitor treatment. The most important point that Kevin stresses is that orthodontics is a complex biological process, and if treatment is not started and overseen by a professional you don’t know if it’s going to be safe or if it’s going to have a good outcome. In addition to serving as CEO and co-founder of Clear Blue Smiles, Kevin is a thought leader and legal expert in the industry. He served 18 years as an executive at the AAO as legal counsel.
In this episode, we address other important topics like:
- How Clear Blue Smile is different from other direct to consumer aligner companies
- Outlining the business relationship between Clear Blue Smiles and the orthodontists who take on their clients
- The two big problems that Clear Blue Smiles helps to solve for many orthodontic offices
- Feedback from consumers and orthodontists so far to Clear Blue Smiles’ business model
