Our story

Once upon a time, five of us started talking about our teeth. We all wished they were straighter, but like millions of other people, we didn’t want to pay over $5,000 for treatment. Besides, braces were not an option. (Especially for Lilla, who had already had them twice.)

We looked into the aligner industry, and we knew we could make a difference. So we partnered with a world-class orthodontist, Dr. C. Lynn Hurst, and founded Candid. Our first office was in Andy Warhol’s old apartment. Then we moved to another apartment. It was all very cozy.

Tens of thousands of patients and 300 employees later, we don’t have meetings on bunk beds anymore. But the spirit of what we’re doing hasn’t changed since those early days, and it never will.

Our standard of care

We partner with licensed dental professionals to bring our high-quality clear aligners to their patients.

Developed by top-tier orthodontists, our process makes high-quality orthodontic treatment easier and more accessible to doctors and patients.

Our combination of advanced aligner technology, remote CandidMonitoring™, and some of the highest diagnostic standards in the industry means our CandidPro™ doctors can treat more patients, save more time, and earn more revenue—all while driving excellent patient outcomes.

Our promise to you

We believe that outcomes can only be as good as the experience of the people designing and providing treatment. That’s why we work exclusively with a carefully curated network of CandidPro dental professionals backed by our team of orthodontists.

We believe that our partners and patients should feel supported and empowered before, during, and after treatment. So we’ll make sure they have all the information needed to navigate care—and we’ll always be here to answer questions.

We believe that everyone deserves the chance to make a change. And we’ll do everything we can to help them get there.
