The orthodontic clinics—operated by independent practitioners—benefit from the support services offered as part of the national network consolidation, freeing up orthodontists' time to focus solely on patient care
TORONTO, Jan. 15, 2020 /CNW/ - The Canadian Orthodontic Partners (COP) team has created many reasons to smile in 2020: a complete brand unification, a growing national partner network, and a continued commitment to give back to the communities they serve, to name a few. In late 2018 and 2019, COP affiliated with 20 new independent partners across Ontario, Manitoba, Alberta, and British Columbia. In 2020, the 50+ clinics within COP's national network will be unified under the singular, industry-leading brand, docbraces. COP is strategically focused on the provision of the best support and education to meet the individual needs of each team member, especially as it relates to their care for patients.
"2019 was an exciting year for us in terms of growth. Our Vision is to become the icon of orthodontic excellence in Canada through our national network. We have always been deliberate about finding the right partners; those who provide a positive patient experience, get involved in their respective communities, and go the extra mile," said Anthony Milonas, President & CEO of Canadian Orthodontic Partners.
"We are unifying our partner clinics under one brand to establish a network that becomes synonymous with our value proposition and with the high quality of care experienced within each of our local communities. The growth of our network will help us continue to strengthen our ability to deliver quality treatment to our patients as we share information and build internal infrastructure that helps us align on best practices and evolve to deliver a consistent patient experience across the country. These exciting partnerships represent the next step in providing an enhanced level of patient care and service experience in our clinics," said Dr. John McManaman, Founder and Chief Orthodontic Officer.

Canadian Orthodontic Partners ended 2019 on a high note with its Annual Doctors Conference, held in Toronto. COP's orthodontists from across Canada joined together for a three-day opportunity to participate in continuing education, collaboration, and connection with its orthodontic community leaders for the betterment of their patients.
"In partnership with our network of doctors, COP is focused on the advancement of orthodontics in Canada, and orthodontic education is key to our ability to play a significant and instrumental role," said McManaman.
COP's core values of trust, learning, confidence, and community remain at the centre of the company's internal and external operations. Patient trust is a cornerstone for COP, with its clinics united under the shared belief that patients always come first.
"Collectively, these values define who we are and drive our purpose of building confidence in our patients, one beautiful smile at a time. Our primary objective is to learn from one another so we can consistently deliver high-quality care in the communities we serve," added Milonas.
