I started the company Kelly Lee, LLC and it's only product Smartie is based on my own need for a retainer remover that would work. Trying to remove my retainers had become such an unpleasant experience that I was ready to give up on the whole thing. But thankfully, necessity is the mother of invention, and after much trial and error, I was fortunate to develop a tool that takes the frustration out of removing retainers. No more broken nails or broken tools, Smartie is made of surgical stainless steel, doesn't bend or break, and easily pops out retainers, aligners, and clear braces.
We are based out of a small town in Northern California. Our mission and hope is that Smartie brings relief to those wearing retainers everywhere. Please feel free to contact me with any comments or suggestions.
