About the creator
Dr. Yan Pogorelsky
Founder and CEO of OrthoSnap Corp. in Westbury, NY.
Dr. Pogorelsky's US-based speaking engagements have included The Big Apple Expo in NY, and the Greater Long Island Dental Meeting, where he presented "Five Shades of Clear – Understanding the Benefits and Limitations of Various Clear Aligners."
Dr. Pogorelsky earned his dental degree and served his internship at Third Medical and Dental Institute of Moscow in the General Dentistry Program. There, the doctor was presented with many complex cases, the level of which was greater than that which he sees in his US patients. What is considered a mid-level complexity case in the US would be an average case in Moscow. His experience in managing complex dental treatment plans created a foundation of expertise that led Dr. Pogorelsky to create OrthoSnap in such a way that it can address malocclusal cases that other clear aligner products cannot treat.
To advance his education in the States, Dr. Pogorelsky has studied CAD/CAM engineering and virtual modeling, as well as business management and administration. He was founder and president of BioGuard, Inc. in Miller Place, NY and AXIS Dental Laboratory, in Brooklyn, NY. Today, the doctor is founder and CEO of OrthoSnap Corp. in Westbury, NY.
