NASHVILLE, Tenn., Dec. 02, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SmileDirectClub, Inc. (Nasdaq: SDC), the oral care company with the first telehealth platform for teeth straightening, has partnered with dental support organization Altius Healthcare Management and its 29 offices throughout Texas to enable even more customers to begin their SmileDirectClub journey in the dentist chair. Working together, the partners will provide customers in the Lone Star State with increased access to premium oral care while improving overall oral health.
The partnership with Altius Healthcare Management will give patients located in rural areas in Texas the option to begin their SmileDirectClub treatment at participating Altius Healthcare dental offices and create opportunities for Altius dentists to provide dental care to SmileDirectClub customers who are located in these rural areas.
“We’re pleased to welcome Altius Healthcare Management and their affiliated practices to the SmileDirectClub Partner Network to ensure Texans across the state have access to a premium teeth straightening solution and our pioneering telehealth platform for orthodontia,” said Chris Thompson, Vice President of the Professional Channel at SmileDirectClub. “We look forward to working with Altius and their network of dental professionals to provide consumers access to a straighter smile that they can afford, starting at their dentist’s office.”
“Altius Healthcare shares SmileDirectClub’s commitment to provide affordable, high quality oral care to communities that need it most,” said Darren E.
