Mehdi Peikar: Fighting Tooth and Nail

With Medhi Peikar, Founder, BRIUS Technology

Dr. Medhi Peikar, inventor and founder of BRIUS Technology. Dr. Peikar started as a dental student in Iran, traveled to the United States for his PhD in Biomechanics from Johns Hopkins, and against all odds became a huge entrepreneurial success while in residency. BRIUS’ revolutionary tooth-straightening method doesn’t show from the front or require constant checkups, which differentiates it from other methods like braces or Invisalign. Although today BRIUS boasts FDA approval and hundreds of successful treatments, it hasn’t been an easy road —for BRIUS or for Dr. Pekhar.
