10 Years Experience
I, Dr.Samuel Prapthik ., MDS( Orthodontics)., FICOI( Implantology), started the Kristelle Klear Aligner system.
In 2011, I first started my dental clinic in Tuticorin, Tamilnadu – Dr. Stephen Memorial dental clinic and later Sam’s Dental Lounge, Coimbatore. As a person specializing in orthodontics, I correct smiles through various methods like fixed appliances (fixed clip), myofunctional appliances and aligners in my clinic and a consultant for a few other dental clinics across Tamilnadu.
What I noticed was that convincing a patient for an aligner was not easy. Though aligner systems had many advantages comparatively, the cost of aligners played a significant role which meant aligners were meant only for the affluent, rich and NRIs.
