Smile Brands to offer SmileDirectClub aligners in new partnership

Nashville, Tenn.-based SmileDirectClub has partnered with Irvine, Calif.-based Smile Brands as part of its direct-to-office treatment model.

The partnership with Smile Brands and its 450 affiliated dental practices is the latest move for the SmileDirectClub Partner Network, a direct-to-office offering launched in January 2020.

SmileBrands dentists can now offer SmileDirectClub clear aligner treatment, with a 3D scan or physical impression performed in the office and treatment completed using the SmileDirectClub telehealth platform.

"We are dedicated to making it easier for dental professionals to provide access to affordable oral healthcare, and being the launch partner for the SmileDirectClub Partner Network furthers that mission," said Steve Bilt, CEO and co-founder of Smile Brands. "Many patients are excluded from traditional orthodontic care by cost and the challenge of missing work or school for frequent office visits. I believe this places unnecessary long-term economic and social limitations on people. This partnership enables us to meet a growing patient need while saving valuable chair time for our affiliated dental practices; a win/win for both patient and practice."
