Irvine-based orthodontic company InBrace announced March 23 its newly appointed Chief Executive Officer: Clint Carnell.

Carnell, who joined InBrace as a board member two years ago, previously helped multiple consumer healthcare companies go public, including HydraFacial developer BeautyHealth and Thermage developer Solta Medical.

In his new role, Carnell will lead InBrace through its next growth phase, which will include bringing its second-generation Smartwire technology to market and help launch its InStudio training and experience centers nationwide.

"I'm excited to bring the InBrace Smartwire technology to market, giving orthodontists and patients more options for teeth straightening," Carnell said in a statement. "InBrace believes you shouldn't have to look worse before looking better and our Smile Now Smartwire addresses a significant unmet need clinically and aesthetically."

InBrace was co-founded in 2014 by doctors John Pham and Hongsheng Tong while working to find a more efficient teeth-straightening system for children with cleft lip and palate. Last September, the company raised over $100 million in Series D financing.
