BONITA SPRINGS, Fla. – June 4, 2021 – PRLog — Orthazone, the orthodontic supplies and software solutions leader, received an endorsement from the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO). The AAO also selected Orthazone’s parent company, Azone, for its Innovation and Transformation Fund award, making it a double honor.
Launched in 2015, Orthazone.com (https://www.orthazone.com/)
Orthazone is the brainchild of Dr. Maryann Kriger, Board Certified Orthodontist and a member of the exclusive orthodontic association, the Edward Angle Society.
“Like many orthodontists, when I first opened my practice, I was stunned by the complexity and time involved in purchasing supplies and managing inventory,” says founder Dr. Kriger. “I knew there had to be a better way and a simpler, smarter solution to optimize time and costs.”
Orthazone.com replaces these time-consuming, labor-intensive processes with easy, immediate, and cost-effective solutions, enabling orthodontists to control their overhead while focusing on what they do best: treat patients. Simultaneously, Orthazone provides suppliers with a cost-effective, efficient process and a direct route to a larger audience.
In addition to Orthazone’s Inventory Management software, their newly launched VIP Suite of services offer:
1) a Payment Slider that allows treatment coordinators to work with patients to visually customize a payment plan and digitally sign contracts.
2) a Lab Tracker that manages digital workflows.
3) custom practice inventory setup & website in one integrated location.
“This is a service whose time has come,” says Dr. Mary Kay Becher, an orthodontist in Texas. “Orthazone is a win-win for doctors and team members alike, as it gives us more time while we see more savings, more efficiencies, and a greater understanding of inventory at a glance. It has proven so essential to my practice that I’ve become an investor in the company myself.”
AAO members get a special discount for the VIP Suite, as well as all products purchased on Orthazone.com.
