By staff writers

April 30, 2021 -- Align Technology announced that more than 10 million patients have begun treatment with the Invisalign system.

To celebrate, the company is donating $10 million to the Align Foundation to fund organizations that transform smiles and support and educate teenagers.

The 10 millionth Invisalign patient is Gabriela Silva from São Paulo, who has begun treatment with Dr. Eunice Blind, an orthodontist practicing at Clinica Pedroso, also in São Paulo. Align is also partnering with Por 1 Sorriso, a Brazilian nongovernmental organization, to help create even more smiles in socially vulnerable communities.

As part of the sponsorship, Por 1 Sorriso will develop doctor-engaged events over the course of a year. The first event will take place on May 29 in São Paulo, providing dental and medical assistance to homeless residents and the local community.
