Reduce Orthodontic Lab Fees
Let us connect you with a partner lab through BID MY ORTHOLAB™
or Create a Custom in-House My 3D printed Smile™
Note: StraightSmile Solutions supports dentists and independent dental labs that service private-practice dentists but does not support direct-to-consumer operations at this time.
If lowering lab fees by at least 50% is a priority at your practice, StraightSmile Solutions® is ready to guide you down a path that is sure to put a smile on your face – and on those of your patients! While lab fees of aligner cases and IDB cases/braces are continuing to soar, we have the means to bring down costs while enabling you to obtain quicker results and increased profits. Our secret? You’ve got a couple of options. We can direct you to quality, cost-effective small labs through Bid My Ortho Lab™, or we can partner with you in developing a SmilePrinted™ in-house lab – or key components of the lab process – within your own practice through our custom SmilePrinted™ service support and My 3D Printed Smile™ systems. We work with in-network labs through Bid My OrthoLab™ where we will negotiate the lowest lab fees on your behalf! Our SmilePrinted™ team will help to guide you though all the steps to set-up operations to utilize 3D printed technology in orthodontic services. The benefits are lower overhead and quicker turn-around times, often as little as an hour! My 3D Printed Smile™ is a turn-key 3D printing operation that will be launching soon in a neighborhood near you!
StraightSmile Solutions® specializes in helping dentists find premium non-branded IDB, functional appliance and aligner companies that manufacture the highest level of quality while charging much less than big name companies. By selecting and outsourcing to these smaller labs, you will significantly reduce your overhead and, consequently, your patients’ fees. If you offer more affordable alternatives, your patient base will diversify, grow, and last, and your bottom line will skyrocket.
