Invisalign has just announced that they have started treatment for their six-millionth patient. Yuzhe is a 12-year-old student from China who began treatment in October 2018 with a series of aligners that incorporated mandibular advancement to correct the alignment of her lower jaw whilst also straightening her teeth.
In support of this major milestone for the company, Yuzhe will be featured in an upcoming Invisalign global campaign, entitled “6 Million Invisalign Smiles” that will follow Yuzhe and her family through her Invisalign treatment journey. The campaign will highlight key reasons why she and her parents decided to choose Invisalign clear aligners to help her achieve a new, beautiful smile.
Julie Tay, Align Technology senior vice president and managing director, Asia Pacific recognized the importance of the 6 millionth Invisalign patient coming from China: “I was absolutely delighted and proud to hear that 6 millionth patient is from Asia Pacific. China is our fastest growing country market with approximately 70% annual growth rate. I believe there is an enormous opportunity in the region for Invisalign providers to treat millions of young patients like Yuzhe. I would like to thank Dr Wo for his confidence in treating Yuzhe with the Invisalign system, and Yuzhe’s parents for trusting that it is the best solution for their daughter.”
