SmileDirectClub partners with Texas DSO

SmileDirectClub partnered with Dallas-based Deca Dental Oct. 22, integrating the DSO's more than 100 affiliated practices into its network.

The partnership will give patients at Deca Dental-affiliated practices the opportunity to begin treatment using SmileDirectClub's clear aligner therapy and teledentistry platform.

"As a clinician-founded and led organization, it is fundamental to DECA Dental's core belief that all clinical decisions should be made by a dentist and that dentists should have full autonomy in deciding the best treatment options for their patients," Sulman Ahmed, DMD, Deca Dental's founder and CEO, said in a news release. "Our partnership with SmileDirectClub is directly related to our goal as a company: to embrace innovative clinical systems that empower our dental practices to operate efficiently while providing the highest quality oral care to our patients."
