SmileDirectClub now participates in UnitedHealthcare’s dental preferred provider organization (PPO) network, making UnitedHealthcare among the first dental plans to cover this new and innovative orthodontic benefit on an in-network basis and offering it to select dental plan members.

This new network relationship enables eligible UnitedHealthcare dental plan members to straighten their teeth by covering SmileDirectClub clear aligners.* The clear aligners are sent right to their door for, in most cases, less than $1,000,** potentially offering significant savings and convenience.

In addition, a straighter, brighter smile helps give employees more reason to enjoy their employer-sponsored benefits while also encouraging a boost in confidence. This is among the first instances of a dental plan covering in-network teledentistry exams and direct-to-consumer clear aligners, a care model pioneered by SmileDirectClub to improve the access and affordability of orthodontic care.

Please contact the Group Health Department with any questions: 319-277-8541.
