Some of your might want to take note of the bad business practices.


This Company Says It Will Fix Your Smile. It May Shush You if It Doesn’t.
SmileDirectClub, which sells teeth aligners online, has worked to limit information about customer dissatisfaction.

SmileDirectClub’s actions underline the risks of ordering products from young companies that are bringing start-up-style “disruption” to health. Many such start-ups have sprung up in recent years selling contact lenses, birth control, acne medicine and prescription drugs directly to consumers without their needing to visit a medical professional.
But even in this world, the tactics employed by SmileDirectClub, which went public last year, stand out.

I don't see how Smile Direct could possibly work. I spent almost $6k on Invisalign, and it was a lot to it. They had to glue these little bumps on my teeth that held the aligners in place, and they were what helped to turn the teeth. At the end those bumps had to be sanded off. I notice on the SD commercials they say they can be removed at night, but I had to wear my Invisalign aligners all night.

I would never trust anything like that. Just go to an orthodontist and get regular braces or a retainer. I had both back to back when I was a kid.
