The company was founded in 2014 in hopes of providing more customers the option to achieve their perfect smile. With locations all over the country, SmileDirectClub connects those wanting a flawless smile with an affiliated dentist or orthodontist to create a plan using invisible aligners. Customers can either walk into a local SmileShop for a consultation and 3D digital scan, or they can use an at-home kit to form their own impressions. This service is much more cost effective than traditional orthodontics and can be done without in-person visits.

“SmileDirectClub was founded on the simple belief that everyone deserves a smile they love – and now, local Tacoma residents will be given simple access to achieve that dream,” SmileDirectClub said in a statement.

The Tacoma SmileShop is now open Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
