A privately owned medical technology company based in Houston, Texas, OrthoAccel manufactures AcceleDent, an FDA-cleared, Class II medical device that helps orthodontists achieve predictable outcomes, speed up treatment and reduce patient discomfort to deliver a better overall orthodontic experience.
OrthoAccel reported a 137 percent growth from 2013 to 2016 and attributes the growth to its market leadership in the field of accelerated orthodontic technology as well as high consumer satisfaction with AcceleDent. In surveys conducted by Orthotown and the Journal of Clinical Orthodontics, orthodontists have touted AcceleDent as their preferred accelerated orthodontic treatment solution.
“We are proud that OrthoAccel is recognized on Deloitte’s Fast 500 list among many other industry-leading brands that are also revolutionizing their respective sectors,” said David Josza, OrthoAccel’s new president and CEO. “This growth is representative of our best-in-class technology and market demand for innovative solutions that improve the orthodontic treatment experience for orthodontists and their patients.”
OrthoAccel recently launched its third-generation vibratory orthodontic device AcceleDent® Optima™ and announced new value pricing to enable more orthodontic patients to benefit from the technology. Patients use the handheld, prescription-only device for 20 minutes daily and the gentle vibrations from the device mouthpiece, worn in conjunction with aligners or fixed braces, accelerate tooth movement, reduce pain and discomfort from treatment and allow for more predictable outcomes for the orthodontist.
Having listened to patient and industry feedback, AcceleDent Optima is now more affordable. It is also smaller and lighter than previous generations of the device, waterproof and can be charged wirelessly in its small charging case. AcceleDent Optima is the first and only orthodontic device that directly connects patients and practices through usage monitoring, direct messaging and virtual awards via the HIPAA-compliant AcceleDent App.
The app was designed to increase practice efficiency for orthodontists and their clinical teams while also using unique virtual awards to encourage patient compliance in a positive, engaging way. Patients can use the app to track their usage, set reminder notifications and compare their treatment progress to other AcceleDent Optima patients.
