SmileSnap, provider of the virtual consultation software used by more than 1,200 dentists and orthodontists worldwide, and Clearwater, a leading provider of cybersecurity and compliance solutions for the healthcare industry, announced today that SmileSnap has become one of the latest subscribers to ClearAdvantage®, Clearwater’s multi-year managed services program that provides customers with the benefits of an integrated and efficiently executed cybersecurity and compliance program at 25%-50% of the cost of traditional approaches.
Founded in 2019, SmileSnap is a rapidly growing technology company that specializes in developing software catered to dental providers. SmileSnap was built with the notion that initial consultations should be enhanced and modernized to meet the expectations of today’s patients. After much thought and understanding of the industry, the company’s team of experienced founders knew there had to be a better way to connect online patients to dental providers – and that is how the platform was born.
With the recent launch of its SmileSnap 360 product, SmileSnap is augmenting its robust technology platform with skilled treatment coordinators who respond to web inquiries, coordinate treatment recommendations, and schedule in-office consultations. The product is performance based so that customers only pay if SmileSnap succeeds in scheduling an attended consultation.
“Our vision is simple, make oral healthcare accessible for everyone,” said SmileSnap Chief Technology Officer Jameson Stafford. “This vision is how the initial concept of Online Smile Assessments was formed, and it is what drives our software development and services today. With the advances in technology and accessibility of the internet, our goal is that everyone can simply get connected to a dental provider to find out the answers they need to make decisions about their oral health. Making secure connections that are also compliant with industry regulations is an important part of achieving that goal, and with Clearwater, we have partnered with the healthcare industry’s top cybersecurity and compliance solution provider.”
By partnering with Clearwater, which was rated both the top Security Advisors & Consultants and top Compliance & Risk Management solution in Black Book Market Research's latest survey of healthcare provider IT and security professionals, SmileSnap is gaining access to the broad and deep expertise of Clearwater’s full consulting team, orchestrated by a dedicated program leader who is taking responsibility for developing a strategic roadmap and tactical work plans that align with the company’s needs and objectives.
