In 2017, Active™ by OrthoGum was founded by William Paini and Amy Carpenter in Denver, Colorado. They wanted to create solutions for patients in orthodontic therapy. Complaints from patients were bad breath, ill fitting aligners, pain, higher risk of cavities, and smelly aligners.  With William and Amy's knowledge of dentistry and their passion for patients combined, Active was born.
