Teledentistry company expands into Canada
September 8, 2021
NEW YORK – Grin, a comprehensive digital orthodontic platform that provides orthodontic solutions in partnership with trusted local doctors, announced that their teledental teeth-straightening system is now available with local orthodontists across Canada. The Grin experience consists of the Grin App, Grin Scope, and Grin Scope mini; all of which are FDA listed medical devices and certified through Health Canada.
Together, under the supervision of partner orthodontists, Grin provides a suite of capabilities – including Grin Remote Monitoring and Consultations – for teeth-straightening and oral-care needs. Grin is being used by tens of thousands of patients and is available throughout the United States at hundreds of orthodontic practices.
The Grin solution reduces the costs and complexity for all dental and orthodontic treatments across the entire patient care continuum. The Grin Scope is an orthodontist created device that serves as an intraoral adapter.
Designed to fit most smiles, it retracts the cheeks and allows a full view of a patient’s mouth. The new Grin Scope mini is 18% reduced in width from a standard scope and allows anyone with a smaller jaw to access Grin, especially children and teenagers.
The system is powered by the Grin App, where patients are guided to self-scan their teeth for an orthodontist-ready video. Remote Consultation provides orthodontists with a cost-effective alternative virtual solution to time consuming initial consults. Together, they deliver superior visibility resulting in unprecedented insights that assist doctors in cost effective lead generation along with safe and convenient care.
“Canadians expect quality and comprehensive care, which is why we’re thrilled Grin can now play a part in delivering the kind of oral-care people deserve: convenient, state-of-the-art, and accessible,” said Grin CEO Adam Schulhof, DMD. “The Canadian healthcare system sets the standard for rapid adoption of new technologies and initiatives on behalf of patients. Grin shares these ideals. We formed this company to provide patients with the best possible experience and ensure everyone has high quality, trusted care.”
Scaling my practice while ensuring my patients get the best care possible is always top of mind,” said Dr. Moe Razavi, a certified orthodontist based in Ontario and Grin investor. “COVID-19 supercharged the need to have a reliable technological platform that can help me serve more patients in less time across an expanded geography.
Grin’s capabilities allow doctors to effectively monitor patients from anywhere, just like they’re in the office. This virtual solution means more patients in less time with more peace of mind for patients and staff alike.”
Grin recently closed a $10 million round led by Triventures with participation from Procter & Gamble Oral Care and SpringRock Ventures. Combined with financial backing from leading independent orthodontists, this brings the company’s total funding to $14 million.
Grin is a comprehensive digital platform that provides dental and orthodontic solutions for all types of oral care needs. The Grin App, Grin Scope, and Grin Scope mini connect patients to real orthodontists in their community. Patients can access quality professional care from the convenience of their smart device. Doctors can remotely monitor patients via virtual check-ins for complete visibility – reducing chair time, increasing patient volume, and ensuring safety.
