The New Standard in Performance-The New Reality in Value

Henry Schein®OrthodonticsTM is proud to introduce the all-new Carriere SLXTM Self-Ligating Bracket System. Designed to establish a new standard in performance, particularly in bracket placement, torque control, and precision finishing, the SLX Appliance System has been completely redesigned while maintaining one of the lowest profiles on the market. The System offers an optimized version of the Damon Rx and tooth specific bracket sizes for more precise finishing with fewer rebonds and less wire bending.

Multiple visual cues, including 6 horizontal and 5 vertical references, help ensure accurate bracket placement. Furthermore, to help improve office efficiency and reduce gingival impingement, the doors of the brackets open towards the incisal edges/occlusal plane.

Discover today the many innovative features that make the SLX Self-Ligating Bracket System the only choice when using a self-ligating bracket. It is the new standard in performance, and the new reality in value.

The New Movement in Orthodontics

We are extremely pleased to announce that our collection of innovative brands, encompassing a wealth of products, now fall under the Henry Schein ® OrthodonticsTM umbrella, made up of Ortho Organizers ®, Masel®, ClassOne ®, and Ortho Technology ®.


"It is with great pride that we take on the name of Henry Schein, which is a highly credible and respected brand in the U.S.," said Russell Bonafede, President, Henry Schein Orthodontics. "This unification of the orthodontic portfolio will allow us to leverage many synergies and equities amongst the brands for the benefit of the orthodontic community."

Henry Schein’s presence in the orthodontic market has expanded over the last several years, starting with the acquisition of Ortho Organizers in 2008, ClassOne in 2009, and Ortho Technology in 2012. Placing Henry Schein’s orthodontic-focused operations under the Henry Schein umbrella will enhance the business prospects for the Company and enable it to serve the orthodontic professional with a wider array of product offerings and practice solutions, including forward-thinking educational offerings.

Ortho Organizers® is pleased to announce new 2014 dates for the educational program centered around one of the leading topics in the orthodontic industry today, Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA).

The speakers, Drs. Lou Chmura and David Paquette, will provide orthodontists and staff with an understanding of the physiology of sleep apnea and the current diagnostic and treatment options, as well as a new orthodontic approach and its protocols. The orthodontic approach is intended to provide patients with immediate relief from OSA, as well as changes to the airway that may address an underlying cause. This program is the first of its kind in the orthodontic industry, and includes a complete, evidence-based system to implement into a practice now.
