SAN JOSE, Calif., June 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Align Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: ALGN) today announced its Invisalign® brand has teamed up with volleyball champion Gabrielle (Gabby) Reece, surf legend Laird Hamilton and their active teenage daughter Reece, to talk about the benefits of Invisalign treatment. This iconic family in the world of health and wellness began their orthodontic treatment with Invisalign clear aligners in May 2017 and will share their first-hand experience as Invisalign brand ambassadors. Connecting with consumers, fans and followers, the family will give a behind-the-scenes look as they live through their treatment journey documented via the Invisalign brand's YouTube channel.
"We are firm believers in feeling good inside and out, and an important aspect of that is having a great smile and a healthy mouth. We are excited about Invisalign treatment, and teaming up with the Invisalign brand to empower others who want to further excel in life by doing the things that help them reach their personal goals," said fitness icon and mother, Gabby Reece. "As a family, we love that Invisalign clear aligners can treat each of our unique needs, while allowing us to continue our very active lifestyles without any interference – it's a natural fit for us!"
Gabby and Laird embody what it means to lead a truly healthy and dynamic lifestyle through ongoing personal development. They are committed to proper nutrition and exercise consistently, even as they travel between California and Hawaii, and know that Invisalign treatment is flexible enough to be a part of their busy lives. They also share the same perspective on the importance of raising strong, confident teens that embrace the positive life choices a person can make to look and feel their best. With features like compliance indicators and eruption tabs designed especially for teens, Invisalign treatment was a perfect match for their 13-year-old daughter Reece. From playing tennis and Jujitsu to keeping up with her typical teenager social lifestyle, Reece knew she didn't want metal braces to shift her teeth over due to a dental accident she had when she was a little girl.
"We are thrilled to have Gabby, Laird and their daughter Reece improving their smiles with Invisalign clear aligners and sharing their experience with the world," said Raphael Pascaud, Align Technology Chief Marketing Officer. "Their dedication to inspire people to live healthy lifestyles that lead to self-confidence is directly in line with the brand's new 'Made to Move' campaign, which focuses on the desire that all people have to move forward in life."
Invisalign is the most advanced clear aligner system in the world with more than 4.5 million smiles created worldwide. Continued Invisalign product innovation including "G-Series" features, SmartTrack aligner material, and clinically proven treatment predictability allows Align Technology to confidently recommend orthodontists to now prescribe one-week wear instead of two-week aligner wear providing up to 50% shorter treatment time.
