NOTE: StraightSmile Solutions supports dentists and independent dental labs that service private-practice dentists but does not support direct-to-consumer operations.
DISCLAIMER: We are an independent company that supports doctors to do more orthodontics. We are not affiliated with Align Technology® or Invisalign® and we fully support doctors who elect to use this aligner company in their practice.
Orthodontic Consulting Done Your Way
24-Hour Response Time | HIPAA Compliant | All-Online
Have you heard? Each year, more general dentists expand and grow their practice by offering braces, Phase 1, and clear aligner services in-house. If you are interested in increasing revenue and cultivating deeper relationships with your patients, Invisalign® is a great option, and StraightSmile Solutions™ is the place to start.
100% Custom and Entirely Online
Because we are able to offer custom services entirely through a series of virtual methods (HIPAA compliant secure email, Zoom, and telephone), we have streamlined the orthodontic consulting process, saving you money and time so that you can concentrate on what really matters: watching your business grow.
We work with ANY aligner system, ANY straightwire system and ANY Phase 1/ Functional Appliance system like: Six Month Smiles®, Healthy Start by OrthoTain®, MRC, Fast Braces®, UConcept by Seven Seas®, OrthoSnap®, ClearCorrect®, Invisalign®, SureSmile®, Envista®, Global Clear Aligners®, Full Contour®, RPE, Schwartz, Sagittal, Quad Helix and more!
INVISALIGN® ALTERNATIVES – ALTERNATIVE ALIGNERS – “YOUR OWN BRAND” ALIGNERS
Did you know that we are the only orthodontic consultants in the industry who can advise on every appliance available in the market? We are not bound to any one brand or type. Whether you are working with “ your own brand” aligners, alternative aligners, generic aligners, or brand-name aligners, we know it well
ORTHO FOR EVERYONE
We are firm believers that there is a brand, an appliance, and a budget for every patient. We can help you determine which systems will work best for your practice. We do this on both a case-by-case and a larger vendor-client relationship basis, and it is all done online. Simply send us your case photos and notes via our HIPAA-compliant portal, and we will advise you on whether the patient is a good candidate for Invisalign®, traditional braces, or an alternative system. StraightSmile Solutions® will be with you at every step of the way, as unlimited access to our resources is included in your monthly subscription.
SAVING ON IDB LAB FEES AND OVERHEAD
Some orthodontic systems and brands require you to use specified labs, but others do not. Save money and have better control over the final product by making use of your own chosen laboratory. The trick is knowing which cases can safely and effectively be completed this way. Let StraightSmile Solutions® help you decide. If you are looking to lower your lab fees, we can connect you with labs that will support you, and we will help you negotiate reasonable fees.
Some branded indirect bonding companies charge $700-$800 a case for access to a forum and a treatment plan. Our team can refer you to labs that charge only $200-$400 for a full IDB set-up. AND StraightSmile Solutions® comes with unlimited coaching on unlimited cases each month.
Incorporating teledentistry and attachment-free aligners into your practice is also a great way to save on overhead because it reduces chair time. This is a simple way to grow your practice while supporting your bottom line.
DENTAL TECHNOLOGY ADVICE
It’s an exciting time in dentistry, with new tools and technology regularly entering the marketplace. As an industry expert, StraightSmile Solutions® advises practices on which technologies will take their patient care to a higher level and which should be avoided.
Here are some of the products we are frequently asked to review:
IntraOral Scanners (IO Scanning) such as:
- Trios® by 3shape
- iTero® Element™ Intraoral Scanner
Aligner printers, scanners and thermal-forming materials including:
- Blue Skye Bio
- Full Contour
- Motion View – In-office 3D Printer
- Structo 3D
All other products and brand inquiries are welcome.
With other orthodontic consultants, not only are you limited to one brand (usually Invisalign®), you are also at the mercy of their schedule. At StraightSmile Solutions®,we offer 24-hour response times and can advise on any type or brand of orthodontic appliance or technology. Everything can be done virtually or by phone so that you can move through your cases efficiently and safely as your business grows.
If you are ready to take your dental practice to the next level by adding orthodontics to your list of services, contact StraightSmile Solutions® to set up a consultation with a trusted orthodontic expert.
At StraightSmile Solutions™, our concierge package offers 24-hour response times and is priced by monthly subscription, not by case. The pricing structure allows you to pay one price for unlimited cases, and the response time allows you to move more efficiently through those cases in your office. Most orthodontic consultants charge on a per case basis and do not offer virtually live-time responses as we do. In addition to that, we are not bound to one brand and, if necessary, will refer and advise you on Invisalign® alternatives and even traditional braces.
The ability to perform orthodontic cases in your office, instead of referring them out each time to a specialist, can greatly increase revenue through case volume, patient retention and new patient acquisition.
