In response to the closure of SmileDirectClub, Smile Doctors launched a giveaway of Smile Express treatments.

Smile Doctors is offering help to patients impacted by the sudden shutdown of SmileDirectClub, committing to giving away 50 Smile Express treatments across Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Maryland, North Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia, in partnership with its affiliated providers in these states.

Smile Express is an at-home aligner system that combines the convenience of remote care and the assurance of a trusted orthodontist.

“This situation is unthinkable to me and my peers in the orthodontic profession as SmileDirectClub patients were essentially abandoned. They were given no advance notice, no resources to continue care, and no recourse to recoup the money they invested in treatment,” said Zachary Casagrande, DDS, of Northern Virginia Orthodontics, the creator of Smile Express. “Our community is focused on helping these patients who have been left high and dry and we’re offering these free treatments as a way to help impacted patients get the results they wanted safely, in the care of experienced orthodontists.”

Those interested in entering the giveaway can go online to enter. The giveaway is currently live and ends on 12/31. Winners will be announced on the brand’s Instagram channel (@mysmileexpress) in January.

“With the advances in remote care technology, there are great at-home alternatives to traditional comprehensive orthodontic treatment that don’t require monthly clinic visits, but I would strongly advise patients to be wary of any that do not require an in-person orthodontic exam before starting treatment,” said Casagrande.

With 400+ locations and growing, Smile Doctors is partnered with leading orthodontists across the country. The organization is a top Invisalign treatment provider globally and features a group of doctors who are key subject matter opinion leaders in the industry and educators at many of the nation’s leading institutions.
