Inbrace Announces National Certification Training Program
Inbrace recently announced the launch of the company’s national certification training program with its first course, “Introduction to Programmed Non-Sliding Mechanics.” The course was held May 17 at The Cove in UC Irvine’s Applied Innovation Center. A full certification training schedule for 2019 will be announced next month.

The Inbrace digital platform enables patented Smartwires to be programmed and personalized for each patient’s unique smile. By eliminating mechanical friction, non-sliding mechanics deliver continuous, low-force tooth movement, which improves oral health and treatment efficiency. The company estimates that Inbrace delivers as little as 5 grams of force to move teeth, giving the body time to adjust and naturally retain healthy roots.

Georgia School of Orthodontics to Award Four Local Children with Complimentary Orthodontic Care
Georgia School of Orthodontics (GSO) announced that it will provide four Sandy Springs- and Gwinnett County-based children with complimentary orthodontic care through its Gift of a Smile program. GSO established the program in 2016 to celebrate the grand opening of its Atlanta clinic. Since its inception, the program has provided free orthodontic care to nine children in the metro Atlanta area as part of the school’s pledge to provide $100,000 in complimentary orthodontic care to children who need braces but cannot otherwise afford it.

The relaunch of the Gift of a Smile program marks the celebration of the school’s three-year anniversary in the Atlanta community. GSO has partnered with Sandy Springs Public Schools and Gwinnett County Public Middle Schools for nominations for this year’s recipients. Four students at participating schools will be selected to receive complimentary braces and the schools with the most nominations will receive free school supplies for their classrooms.

The school’s Gift of a Smile program is just one part of its mission to provide increased access to the highest quality orthodontic care. GSO also has the Purple Heart Smiles program, which provides free orthodontic care to the children of Purple Heart recipients. To date, GSO has provided complimentary care to more than 20 children of Purple Heart recipients.
