The SureSmile technology was developed and is owned by OraMetrix, a company founded in 1998 through the merger of two medical technology companies, one U.S. based and the other German. The company was launched globally in 1999 with the help of a $150,000 investment from STARTech Early Ventures LLC. Other key investors include Brentwood Venture Capital, CenterPoint Ventures, Rho Ventures and STAR Ventures.
The SureSmile System received 510K marketing clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in November 2000. In 2003, OraMetrix relocated its U.S. corporate headquarters from Dallas to a larger, 25,000-square-foot facility in Richardson, Texas. Today, more than 100,000 patients have received or are in treatment with SureSmile at over 400 practices nationwide.
