Angelalign Technology, a clear aligner provider, and 3Shape, a computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) software developer, has announced a global strategic partnership aimed at strengthening both companies’ ability to serve digital orthodontics patients globally.

The partnership is said to enable Angel Aligner’s clinicians to upload patient images to Angel Aligner’s cloud-based digital orthodontic platform when using 3Shape scanners. Meanwhile, 3Shape’s orthodontic clients will gain access to Angel Aligner’s clear aligner solutions to streamline their workflows.

“Throughout the years, Angel Aligner and 3Shape have nurtured a deep and enduring partnership founded on mutual trust. To foster a broader and deeper cooperation, we aim to leverage the resources and cutting-edge technologies from both sides, to drive innovation and transformation in digital orthodontics. Our shared goal is to enhance efficient and accurate diagnosis and treatment, while providing patients with a comfortable and precise orthodontic experience,” said Donald Huang, director of Angel Aligner.

According to the companies, the partnership is an embodiment of Angel Aligner’s digitalisation and internationalisation strategy while also embodying both companies’ commitment to open-architecture business systems. This new partnership also aims to promote the digital orthodontic industry’s development globally.

“Building on our longstanding collaboration, 3Shape and Angel Aligner are taking our global strategic partnership to new heights through our joint efforts to create a more comprehensive digital dental ecosystem. I am confident that the combination of our technologies will deliver smarter, more precise and highly efficient treatment solutions to users around the world,” said Jakob Just-Bomholt, CEO of 3Shape.
