The company develops and produces high-quality easy-to-use solutions that are transparent, removable, comfortable, attractively priced, and used typically to treat minor to medium malocclusions. The majority of its customers are general dentists, who are served directly in North America or through sales agents in Australia, Israel, New Zealand and the UK.

Today the ClearCorrect employs a staff of approximately 200.
