NEW YORK, N.Y., USA: OrthoAccel Technologies has announced a partnership with Orthodontext, a service that allows orthodontists to send their patients customized text messages reminding them to use their AcceleDent for 20 minutes daily. Patient compliance is a key component of the effectiveness of AcceleDent, which is a noninvasive FDA-cleared, Class II medical device that speeds up orthodontic treatment by as much as 50 percent.

Dr. Hilton Goldreich of Goldreich Orthodontics founded Orthodontext with the idea that patients share responsibility in the success and pace of their own treatment. Orthodontists like Dr. Vladimir Tabakman of West Houston Orthodontics have found that the text reminders have tremendously helped them save money by reducing the number of unnecessary appointments caused by noncompliance.

Through the partnership, AcceleDent providers will be offered a 30 percent Orthodontext lifetime discount and an additional 30-day free trial requiring no setup fee and no contract.

“As a leader in our industry, we’re excited to be the first to partner with Orthodontext to offer even more value to our orthodontists who believe in AcceleDent and prescribe it to their patients,” said Michael K. Lowe, president and CEO of OrthoAccel. “The easy-to-use Orthodontext reminders are another way that practices can seamlessly integrate AcceleDent into their treatment modalities, which is important since we anticipate that accelerated orthodontics with AcceleDent will soon become the standard of care.”

“We’ve always emphasized to patients that compliance is important in getting the smile they want as quickly as possible, and Orthodontext makes it easier for my staff and me to help patients stay on track with their treatment,” Tabakman said. “We’ve been using Orthodontext to remind patients to use their AcceleDent and have already seen great results with patients who have completed treatment on time or faster with the help of their friendly text reminders.”
