Meet The Founders

Our company was founded by three industry experts with a heart for helping others.

Kevin Dillard

Kevin Dillard

Kevin Dillard is a legal expert and thought leader in the orthodontic industry for the past two decades, with nearly 18 years of experience as an executive at the American Association of Orthodontists.

He served as General Counsel for the AAO, leading their legal and advocacy efforts overall and shaping the messaging with regard to “do-it-yourself” orthodontics.  He was the spokesperson for the AAO on standard of care issues, and is quoted extensively in Buzzfeed News, the Detroit Free Press, LA Times, Fast Company, CBS News, NBC News, TechCrunch, Reason, and International Public Radio, among others, on the subject.

Kevin’s inside view of the industry over the past two decades has given him great perspective on the changing needs of patients and the technological advances shaping diagnostic testing and the manufacturing of appliances.  He has witnessed first-hand the consumer demand shift toward a need for convenience and affordability.  That, combined with his reputation for developing well-reasoned legal and business strategies, led him to create Clear Blue Smiles.
