The closure of SmileDirectClub brings to light the controversy around direct-to-consumer dentistry. The American Dental Association has recently reaffirmed its policy which strongly opposes offers of direct-to-consumer dentistry because of the potential for irreversible harm to individuals.
To allow greater access to expert care, any patient with a current SmileDirectClub contract will be eligible for a $500 discount when continuing their aligner treatment with us, with the exception of British Columbia and Alberta. While the SmileDirectClub “Lifetime Smile Guarantee” no longer exists, patients can look forward to lifelong confident smiles with expert orthodontic care at docbraces.
Affordable orthodontic care is a great way to put a smile on your face
The cost of braces or aligners can put orthodontic care out of reach for many Canadians. One of the benefits of SmileDirectClub’s telehealth model was affordability, and its closure will leave many patients without accessible options. We know that making orthodontic care more affordable is a great way to get people smiling. That’s why we are thrilled to launch flexsmile at our locations across Canada on January 8th. This new program is designed to help more people invest in their smile through flexible financing options.
Introducing docbraces flexsmile
docbraces flexsmile is an easy-to-understand program offering flexible down payment options, to help patients tailor down payments and monthly payment options to suit their budget. With plans starting at $0 down, and both in-house 0% financing and third-party options, you can get the smile you deserve on your terms.
Want to provide a down payment of more than 50% to decrease your monthly payments? We can create a payment plan that makes sense for you. Maybe you are looking to extend payments for up to 5 years. flexsmile has financing options for that too, thanks to a partnership with humm. Your smile is unique, why shouldn’t your financing options be too? Learn more about flexsmile here.
At docbraces, it’s important to us that a confident smile is accessible for as many as possible. By helping SmileDirectClub patients continue treatment, and giving as many individuals and families the flexible payment options they need to get started with orthodontic care, we are hoping more Canadians can start the new year smiling.
