Privacy and Confidentiality

Your submission of personal information through the Website is governed by our Privacy Policy. You also agree that any information that you submit through the site that is communicated to our orthodontists will be accurate and complete.

Treatment

Before starting treatment, every candidate goes through an assessment on our tele-health platform where we ask them to submit photos and share basic information about their dental history. Depending on each case, we may also request additional documents (ex: panoramic X-Ray) to better evaluate the candidate’s dental health.

Please note that if you choose to pay for your invisible aligner treatment with the monthly installments option, the date of delivery of your aligner batches will be independent of the due date of your installments.

In some cases, your initial impressions may only be valid for the creation of your treatment plan and 3D simulation; but not for the production of your custom aligners. In such cases, after approving your plan, we will send you a redo kit(s) free of charge to make sure we have accurate impressions for both your top and bottom teeth. Alternatively, we may ask you to visit a dentist in order to take impressions of your teeth and send them back to us.

To ensure the best results for your invisible aligner treatment, our orthodontists may require that you visit your dentist for pretreatment dental work. These visits may be required after you purchase the treatment. In such cases, the aligners will not be dispatched until your pretreatment work is complete.

For proper treatment progress, it is important that you follow the invisible aligner guidelines found in your aligner kit. They include instructions on how to handle and take care of your aligners to ensure proper treatment progress. It is also important that you use the chewies that are provided for at least 1 minute every day for better fit and progress.
