Usain Bolt partners with SprintRay and Jamaican Dental Assoc

Katherine E. Pfaff


3D printer and digital dental company, SprintRay Inc., has entered a 5-year collaboration with the Jamaican Dental Association, and Usain Bolt, Olympic gold medal-winning runner. The partnership will bring SprintRay’s dental offering to Jamaica through the project, “Bolt Labs powered by SprintRay.” 

“This initiative marks a pivotal step, as SprintRay continues to act on our mission to improve dental care quality and delivery times through technological innovation,” said Amir Mansouri, PhD, co-founder and chief executive officer of SprintRay. “Using our ecosystem of dental 3D printing products, dental work can now be completed in a fraction of the time and cost, and without multiple offices visits."

SprintRay, Bolt, and JDA will expand access to dental care, including to rural areas, with the opening of clinics, a mobile facility, and 3D dental clinics aimed at treating patients of all ages.

"I am proud to represent and partner with SprintRay and fellow 'sprinters,' as we call ourselves. This is a company that is poised to transform the digital dental industry on a global scale," said Usain Bolt. "This initiative is intended to accelerate a very critical and unmet need for improvements in dental care access across the world, starting with Jamaica, where there is less than one dentist for every 100,000 residents. I look forward to working with SprintRay to give confidence and the best possible smile to every citizen of this planet.
