Maybe you’ve seen a post on social media, or you’re researching teeth straightening options on Google. Or maybe you’ve taken the first step to determine if SmileDirectClub’s aligners are right for you and you’re asking yourself, now what? With the help of our state-licensed dentists and orthodontists, we’re here to explain the process and some of the benefits of teledentistry. So you can sleep, and smile, easy.
Whether you’ve completed your remote impression kit or you’ve gone to a SmileShop for a 3D image, the basic process for making your new smile is the same for everyone. SmileDirectClub’s aligners are offered through a network of over 250 state-licensed dentists and orthodontists. These doctors have many years of aligner therapy experience. Each SmileDirectClub customer is assigned a dentist or orthodontist who is licensed where they live.
Your provider will assess your individual case, including your medical and dental history, and determine if SmileDirectClub aligners are the right fit for you. Then you’ll receive a 3D image of your new smile generated from your impressions or scan. We’ll create your individualized smile plan, ship your aligners, and remotely follow your progress all the way through the end of your smile journey. Your doctor will oversee your new smile, and schedule regular virtual check-ins with you.
A Clinical Advisory Board guides SmileDirectClub’s network of dentists and orthodontists. In fact, the dentists and orthodontists in our network don’t work for SmileDirectClub at all. They can prescribe aligners to their customers, but they’re under no obligation to recommend SmileDirectClub’s aligners specifically.
The Clinical Advisory Board is responsible for the establishment of recommended clinical guidelines and best practices for SmileDirectClub aligners. The board makes recommendations to SmileDirectClub on its practices and services.
Teledentistry is a more convenient and accessible option for most people. It also offers doctors the ability to provide more affordable options for orthodontic treatment. That’s why SmileDirectClub aligners cost 60% less than braces1 and Invisalign2. SmileDirectClub is a leader in promoting and developing advanced technology. We’ve also made it available to local orthodontists and general dentists while improving everyone’s access to care.
“We define quality as the intersection of customer satisfaction and the Standards of Care. Our affiliated network will always do their absolute best to make customers happy with the results of their smile. We utilize the Standards of Care established by the dental professional community,” says Dr. Sulitzer.
SmileDirectClub truly believes everyone deserves a smile they’ll love. We are proud to be pioneers in the teledentistry space. We, along with dentists and orthodontists, are helping increase access to individuals who thought straight teeth weren’t an option.
