Winning brands join forces to promote winning smiles and drive community awareness and support for youth education and sports

SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 07, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Align Technology, Inc. (ALGN), makers of the Invisalign clear aligner system, today announced a multi-year agreement with the San Francisco 49ers, making the Invisalign brand the official smile partner of the 49ers.
