SmileDirectClub approves of American Association of Dental Boards' proposed teledentistry regulations

Nashville, Tenn.-based SmileDirectClub announced its approval March 4 of the American Association of Dental Boards' state-level examples of teledentistry regulations.

The suggested provisions include ensuring the consumer has information about a treating dentist, access to clear aligner therapy via remote platforms, and access to care without office visits and mandatory radiographs.

"Today, we applaud the AADB's progressive steps to present sample legislation that will help State Dental Boards regulate oral healthcare and increase patient access to a better quality of life," SmileDirectClub CEO David Katzman said.
