More than 60% of counties in the U.S. don’t have an orthodontist’s office, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. This means residents of these communities need to search for an orthodontist, take additional time off from work or school to travel to appointments, and then continue going back and forth for every follow-up visit. The good news? SmileDirectClub’s teledentistry model extends access to quality orthodontics to these underserved counties. In fact, SmileDirectClub has increased underserved Americans’ access to care by 84%!
Transforming your smile is easy and affordable with our invisible aligners. Since 2014, SmileDirectClub has helped 1 million Club members transform their smiles. We believe everyone deserves a smile they love – and it shouldn’t be too difficult or expensive to do that.
Nearly 80% of the U.S. population could benefit from orthodontic treatment, yet only 1% receives it each year. It’s not exactly convenient to take numerous days off work or school for appointments, not to mention the $4000–$8000 price tag attached to traditional orthodontics.
With SmileDirectClub, you can easily begin your smile journey by visiting one of our SmileShops or by having an impression kit mailed to your front door. We ship aligners straight to you, so you don’t have to worry about monthly appointments.
Removing the hassle of in-office visits, means those savings go directly to you. Our doctor-directed doctor-prescribed clear aligners cost up to 60% less than traditional braces. We work with a network of 250 state licensed dentists and orthodontists to give you a smile you love.
“SmileDirectClub’s teledentistry platform allows for more convenient access and flexibility for individuals who may not have access to local care,” says Jeffrey Sulitzer, DMD, Lead Dentist at SmileDirectClub.
And our customer care specialists are always available by phone, email, chat, and social media to answer any questions you might have. So, while the entire SmileDirectClub process can be done remotely, you can rest assured you’re never alone.
