Align Technology announces its partnership with Digital Smile Design (DSD), a pioneer in holistic, digital, and emotional dentistry solutions. The amalgamation aims to advance multi-disciplinary dentistry by building a streamlined end-to-end digital workflow as well as best-in-class clinical education.
This collaboration is helping DSD to highlight the Invisalign system and iTero Element scanners which are the digital solutions for choice for tooth movement and scanning. Align, and DSD aims to deliver dedicated education programs, enable simplified and streamlined integration of end-to-end digital workflows and offer medical professionals more opportunities to learn about digital tools and treatment planning support.

With this collaboration, we can provide dentists and prosthodontists with dedicated tools that will support their approach to modern comprehensive dental care and practice expansion,” said Raphael Pascaud, Align Technology senior vice president, business development and strategy. “By combining DSD’s methodology in functional and aesthetic dentistry along with Align’s end-to-end digital workflow including iTero scanning technology and Invisalign clear aligner therapy, general practitioners can confidently address their patient’s restorative needs with a fully streamlined, orthodontic workflow and deliver greater clinical outcomes.”
Dr. Christian Coachman, founder of DSD also mentioned that they are happy and confident about this partnership as this collaboration will enable general practitioner dentists to feel even more empowered to achieve their goals. “We believe incorporating ‘facially driven’ treatment planning into Align's digital workflow will provide a seamless digital workflow that makes comprehensive dentistry achievable to all general practitioner dentists so that they can give even greater patient outcomes,” he added.
