Clear aligner company adds chief development officer, chief dental officer

Clear aligner company Candid recently hired Lou Shuman, DMD, as executive consultant and chief development officer and Brian Gray, DDS, as chief dental officer. 

Dr. Shuman is the CEO and founder of Cellerant Consulting, a business management consulting firm for dental companies. Dr. Gray is a Washington, D.C.-based dentist who has trained nearly 30,000 dentists in clear aligner therapy.  

Candid halted its direct-to-consumer clear aligner business in December 2021 to switch to a provider-based orthodontics-as-a-service model, growing its network by more than 500 percent this year, according to a Sept. 12 news release. The company said it will soon be launching new features and enhancements under its new leadership.
