About DrSmile

DrSmile is Germany’s leading provider for clear aligners, an invisible and comfortable alternative to traditional braces for straightening teeth. Established in 2017 in Germany, the dental company is rapidly growing and driving retail expansion internationally. DrSmile is continuously looking for new dentist partners to offer its treatments. Due to the addition of new countries, such as Switzerland, Italy and Poland, and continued growth in existing markets, it wanted to make detailed analyses of existing and new locations to ensure the best possible distribution of its services.

 

Challenges

DrSmile was looking for innovative and data-based technology to make location decisions. It would allow the dental care company to accurately assess the attractiveness of new locations, and successfully fuel its expansion with new partnerships. At the same time, it could analyze existing locations and see where there would be opportunities to optimize its network.

Its main challenges:

  • Identify areas where young adults with certain income levels live.
  • Calculate how many people can reach a location.
  • Find areas with potential for revenue increase and cost savings.
  • Locate attractive places with complementary shops and services.
“We use TargomoLOOP for both the optimization of our network as well as expansion. We can use reliable data sets and discover new areas to set up partnerships.”
Fabian Zimmermann, Business Development, DrSmile
