Your questions answered

Telehealth lets us provide high-quality care, convenient treatment and trusted oversight—all without the overhead costs of an office visit. Our network of doctors uses the same care standards, imaging tools and technology you can find in most dentist and orthodontist’s offices. They just connect with you remotely using teledentistry, allowing you to skip the in-person office check-ins, and keep the professional oversight and peace of mind.

 

This is how teledentistry helps us straighten teeth for 60% less than the cost of traditional braces, and provides safe, convenient treatment for anyone with limited time or limited access to an orthodontist or dentist office.

Clear aligner treatment has been safely used to straighten teeth for more than 20 years. Unlike traditional braces, clear aligners are BPA-free plastic trays that fit snugly over teeth to gently shift them into the desired position. SmileDirectClub clear aligner therapy includes several sets of custom-made aligners, worn for 1 to 2 weeks at a time to gently shift your teeth into desired position. This process takes, on average, four to six months.

 

Each aligner will make slight adjustments to tooth position, advancing you to the next stage of your new smile. The process is mapped out in advance, and a SmileDirectClub-affiliated, state-licensed licensed dentist or orthodontist oversees each Club Member’s case. Every set of clear aligners in your plan is shipped to you all at once. If Club Members follow their prescription and wear their aligners as directed, they will see optimal results.

 

To maintain a healthy smile, we ask that you see your regular dentist for cleanings and checkups before, during and after clear aligner treatment.

Every aspect of clear aligner treatment with SmileDirectClub—from the creation of the treatment plan through the retention phase—is prescribed and managed by an assigned state-licensed dentist or orthodontist.

 

The doctors in SmileDirectClub’s network are held to the same standard of care as at a physical practice. After receiving the 3D images captured at a SmileShop or through an at-home impression kit, the licensed dentist or orthodontist determines the patient’s eligibility for treatment and reviews any necessary X-rays, dental records, and required clearances from the patient’s regular dentist before prescribing a custom smile plan.

 

Similar to physical dental practice, SmileDirectClub’s Dental Team is available for support 24/7/365 by phone, email, chat and video to answer any questions and concerns about treatment, and to connect Club Members to their assigned dentist or orthodontist for follow-up care.

Expert treatment, professional support, and peace of mind.
