    Sonendo® Launches 500K Club Charitable Initiative

    Sonendo, Inc., a leading dental technology company and developer of the GentleWave® System, announced today the launch of its “500K Club” to celebrate the company’s recently announced achievement of having more than 500,000 patients treated with the GentleWave Procedure. 

    The 500,000th patient is Kate Fleming, a 30-year-old woman based in Arizona, treated by Dr. Brian Hays of Canyon Ridge Endodontics. Fleming reflects positively on her surprisingly comfortable root canal experience – “I was hurting a lot before my root canal. The GentleWave Procedure went very smoothly, and I experienced no pain during or after the treatment. I would highly recommend it to anyone in need of a root canal treatment.”

    To commemorate the milestone, and as part of the 500K Club initiative, Sonendo will donate $5 to the local Orange County Ronald McDonald House for every photograph uploaded featuring the GentleWave System posed alongside a doctor, staff, or patients. The mission of Ronald McDonald house is to build a world where all children have access to medical care and their families are supported and actively involved in their children’s care. 

    All GenteWave Users are encouraged to upload a photo at 500K.Sonendo.com and anyone can participate. Once uploaded, approved photos will be featured on the newly launched 500K Club page at Sonendo.com/500KClub. 

    “We are humbled by the interest and excitement the GentleWave Procedure has generated, and are grateful to the many clinicians, staff and patients who have made this journey possible,” said Bjarne Bergheim, Sonendo’s President & CEO. “The 500K Club is a way for us to give something back as we celebrate this significant achievement. It is also a fun and interactive way for the growing GentleWave User community to participate in the celebration while supporting a good and important cause.”
