The Patent Professor® Client Interview: Inventor of Inman Liner Orthodontic Appliance

Read Full Post


Wow, congratulations. Congratulations on the client Innovation Awards. We are here with Donald Inman, and he is a client of John. So congratulations. Can you please tell us a little bit about your invention and this award?

Sure. The the middle liner is a orthodontic device designed to straighten anterior teeth, the front teeth, the teeth that you see when you smile. It's designed to straighten those without the need for braces and works very quickly. It works between six and 16 weeks. And thanks to John, we have a 20 year proven track record.

Wow, incredible. So you worked with John to create this and bring this idea that you had to live? Can you tell us a little bit about your experience working with John?

Well, it's amazing because we we first of all, we didn't have any money back then we were a seven person kind of getting by dental laboratory. And I'm not really sure how I found John. But John travelled to my office. And he couldn't made it any easier for us, it kind of took the the fear out of spending money we didn't have at the time on the patent, he gave us confidence to move forward with a patent. And he wrote a really strong patent a matter of fact, in 20 years, we've never had a product even come close to our product. So that's how strong the patents are. We've watched other devices get copied. You know, but because our patent was so strong, they can't do it.

Wow, congratulations. So starting off, very humble beginnings. And now you're so successful. And that's all because you put your idea into practice. The patent Professor John here helps you bring that idea to life. And you've had an incredible success. So congratulations.

Thank you. We couldn't have done it without John.

Awesome. And what inspired you to create this input?

Well, it's it was my frustration with other devices that tried to do what ours did. And I don't really want to get technical, but the force was generated in the wrong direction with the other devices. And we just figured it out. We figured out how to generate the force, get a little technical parallel to the occlusal plane. And it solved a lot of issues and also allowed the appliance to correct teeth that were very crooked with just one simple device.

Wow, incredible. You're helping so many lives and helping that confident smile back to them and that dental health. So thank you for all that you do and what are your long term goals

to retire?

That's a good one.

My son's right over there. He's taken things over here.

Wow. Congratulations. What a legacy you're leaving with him.

Yep, he's got a headstart. Wow. Well,

congratulations again on this award. Well deserved and thank you again for being here. Thank you
