I know what you’re thinking. Perhaps the Orthodontics industry isn’t what you were looking for. If I am being honest, that’s what I initially thought. But the more I learned, the more I started to see the exciting and massive opportunity. Imagine an industry that hasn’t changed in 50 years. This space is old, slow, and ripe for a team of creative and passionate people to do something BIG. We have a very real and rare opportunity to truly build a company from the ground up and disrupt a $2B industry. There aren’t many startups in Boston that can honestly say that.
As a Junior CAD Technician at LightForce Orthodontics, you will be an active member of a fast-growing start-up at the forefront of digital manufacturing.

On-the-job training will be provided. Good spatial awareness and a willingness to learn new tools and skills will be beneficial. Previous orthodontics experience is not required.
