It’s an exciting day when you get your SmileDirectClub aligners delivered. Your Smile JourneyTM now feels real, but you may feel a little nervous.
Don’t worry, you’re not on your own. As part of your Smile Journey, you’ll have regular virtual Smile Check-insTM throughout your aligner treatment.
Smile Check-ins take place with your treating doctor and ensure your aligners fit properly and your teeth are moving as expected, so you end up with a smile you’ll be proud to show off.
There is no extra cost – these are included in your journey.
SmileDirectClub schedules your virtual Smile Check-ins for you. Your first check-in will occur around 7 to 8 weeks into your treatment.
From then on, check-ins are part of your treatment plan. As one aspect of these virtual visits, you’ll upload pictures to help track your progress.
You don’t have to wait until your check-in if you have questions or concerns. SmileDirectClub has 24/7 support, via email, phone, chat, or video chat.
SmileDirect check-ins aren’t a replacement for preventive care. Regular dental appointments are part of good oral hygiene, and they go hand in hand with your SmileDirectClub aligner check-ins. They will make sure that your new smile stays healthy and looking good long after your treatment plan is complete.
Through regular cleanings and necessary dental procedures, your local dentist can help keep your teeth and gums healthy. If you don’t have a local dentist, the SmileDirectClub Partner Network is a great place to get started with treatment and establish local dental care.
