Strategic Collaboration of VVOS and Candid

Vivos and Candid will collaborate to explore new device development research and development prospects.
VVOS and Candid will advertise one other’s goods and areas of expertise in order to provide patients in the United States and Canada with a holistic sleep and dental health solution. Furthermore, the VVOS System for treating OSA and Candid’s CandidPro clear aligner for aligning teeth will be the focus of the partnership. Lastly, to bridge the gap between airway health and orthodontic therapy, the two firms will exchange instructional resources, coaching, and key opinion leaders.
VVOS hopes that by partnering with Candid, they will be able to offer patients not just a very successful Vivos System, but also CandidPro’s unique orthodontic therapy.
