Align Technology President and CEO Joe Hogan said this in the press release:

I’m pleased to report stronger than expected results with record third quarter revenues up 21% year-over-year reflecting strong momentum across all regions and customer channels for both Invisalign clear aligners and iTero scanner and services. During the quarter, we continued to support doctor recovery efforts with products, programs, and virtual tools and training that helped more doctors transition their practices to digital technologies and drove record utilization across the Invisalign portfolio. Capping off our record quarter is the achievement of our 9 millionth Invisalign patient milestone. We also saw strong response to our new teen and mom-focused consumer campaign with 118% year-over-year increase in total leads, an uptick in consumer engagement from new social media influencers like Charli D’Amelio and Marsai Martin, and a 25.6% year over year increase in teenagers using Invisalign clear aligners. Our overall revenue momentum has continued into October and we are encouraged by positive feedback from Invisalign providers regarding the benefits of digital orthodontics starting with an iTero scanner for Invisalign treatment – especially in this COVID-19 environment.
