Want to get started on your Smile JourneyTM with SmileDirectClub but not sure where to start? You’ve got options — in fact, you’ve got three options.
Here’s the lowdown on each of the three ways to get started with SmileDirectClub so you can choose the path that fits your needs best.
And P.S.: Whichever way you choose, we’ll be with you each and every step.
If you’re not near a SmileShop or just prefer to get started from the comfort of home, a remote impression kit is the way to go. It only takes 30 minutes and the kit has everything you need to get started. That includes easy-to-follow instructions, so you can create perfect impressions that will be used to create your smile plan and aligners.
The remote impression kit is seriously no fuss. It’s also no risk. If our state-licensed dentists and orthodontists determine you’re not a good fit for aligners, we’ll refund the cost of your SmileDirectClub impression kit.
If you’d prefer some extra help, we’re here to help. We’ve got a video that walks you through the process, step-by-step, or you can call us and we will walk you through it.
Once you’ve taken your impressions, it’s time to send it back — shipping on us. Just put on the shipping label and drop it in the mail.
Itching to get out of the house or just prefer to let someone else handle the start to your new smile? Hit up our locations page to schedule a free appointment at one of our SmileShops. You’ll get personalized, in-office advice and guidance.
We have SmileShops located across the globe. Make an appointment and during your visit, a SmileGuide will not only take a 3D image of your current smile. Your SmileGuide will explain how SmileDirectClub works and walk you through the process, giving you the option to sign up then and there.
Just one visit, which only takes around 30 minutes of your time, is all you need. The 3D image is used to create your treatment plan, which is reviewed and approved by your treating doctor. No more in-person appointments necessary.
Your third option for getting started with SmileDirectClub is to go to one of the 1,500+ dentists and orthodontists in our Partner Network.
This option is great for anyone who would feel more comfortable with personalized, in-office advice and guidance before starting treatment.
Another perk of visiting a SmileDirectClub dentist in our Partner Network: It lets you establish care with a local dentist that you can use to keep your teeth healthy throughout your journey.
If you choose to go this route, the dentist or orthodontist will take a 3D image or impression of your teeth in their office and talk you through your options and explain how treatment works.
Sound pricey? It’s not! That’s because we take over at this point. We still send your aligners directly to you. They’re not sold to your dentist, which means no hidden markups that would otherwise cost you extra.
Now that you know your options, take our free 30-second online assessment to see if SmileDirectClub is right for you.
