What was the problem?

There was no easy way for an Orthodontist to take a set of 8 progress photos of their patient’s teeth and no way to directly upload the photos to the cloud to be stored in the patient’s chart. Further, previous photo sets had been taken at inconsistent angles, with poor lighting, making time-lapsed comparisons difficult.

What was the problem

What did we do?


We spoke with various orthodontic practitioners and front office staff to understand the challenges they face when taking progress photos.

Brainstorming & Planning

Over the span of 3 weeks, interlaced with brainstorming meetings between WestonDEV and OrthoMinds, a detailed feature list was created.


Our design team created a beautiful wireframe, or mockup, of every screen to be created for the mobile app. This wireframe coupled with the feature list was used to create a specific timeline for the entire lifecycle of the project.

Coding and Testing

Our industry-leading development team took the reins and built out of the mobile application and backend API integration with the existing OrthoMinds database. Several weeks of rigorous quality checking was performed.

User Feedback and Future Planning

A good application is never finished. To this day, we continue to collect feedback from OrthoMinds Photos and use the insight gained to propose new features and systems that can improve the mobile app we developed.

WestonDEV leveraged several cutting edge technologies in image capture, image guiding senciles, and post-capture image manipulation, to create a mobile app that drives efficiency and standardizes the process to capture orthodontic patient progress photos.
