Denny, do you have any idea if ALGN sells its products through Dentsply Inc (XRAY)or do they sell directly to orthodontists?

I don't "know" but I doubt it. From their Yahoo profile, Dentsply sells stuff that dentists got to know in school while clear aligners have to be custom made for each patient. To me that sounds like a "sell direct" kind of product.

For what it's worth, I looked at XRAY some years ago and passed because I did not like their historic growth rate of under 10%.

As for boards for individual companies, they get very little traffic. ALGN has 57 posts in 17 years!
