NEW YORK—Candid, a clear aligner service company, announces two new additions to its leadership team – Dr. Lou Shuman as Executive Consultant and Chief Development Officer and Dr. Brian Gray as Chief Dental Officer. They join Dr. Ben Miraglia, VP of GP Clinical Education at Candid Academy as major leadership additions. Under the guidance of the new leadership team, Candid will be releasing a host of new features and enhancements vaulting the company ahead.

After shuttering its direct-to-consumer clear aligner business in December 2021 and pivoting into a full provider-based model, Candid has grown its provider base over 500% in 2022.

Candid Reloads Leadership Team
Shuman is an orthodontist and founder and CEO of Cellerant Consulting Group and an expert in growing dental technology companies. He is also co-founder of LightForce Orthodontics and served as Vice President of Clinical Education and Strategic Relations at Align Technology for seven years.

Candid Reloads Leadership TeamGray has been a leader in new dental technologies for nearly four decades. He is a Master in the Academy of General Dentistry and a fellow in five other academies. He is a member of The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and The American Academy of Restorative Dentistry. Known for having trained nearly 30,000 dentists in clear aligner therapy over the last two decades, Gray thinks Candid is uniquely positioned to meet the general practitioner where they are.

Candid rounds out its leadership upgrade with a host of new Candid Academy Faculty members, with Drs. Tom Shannon and Geoffrey Skinner joining visionaries like Drs. Ben Miraglia, Kalli Hale, and Craig Spodak. Miraglia has played a pivotal role in upgrading Candid’s Rx and through his teaching and advocacy continues to attract top clinicians to Candid Academy.
