What To Do About Smile Direct Club Bankruptcy and My Treatment

Many Smile Direct Club patients are scrambling to figure out their current situation in terms of treatment plan, payments, refunds and many more topics. Unfortunately, there is very little information available only shortly after the bankruptcy announcement on Friday, December 8th, 2023. From the Smile Direct Club website:

I placed an order for SmileDirectClub aligners, but have not yet received my aligners. What should I do?
Unfortunately aligner treatment is no longer available through the SmileDirectClub platform. All orders that have not yet shipped have been cancelled at this time, and you will not receive your aligners.

Is the Lifetime Guarantee still in place?
No. Effective immediately the Lifetime Smile Guarantee no longer exists.

How do I ask for a refund?
There will be more information to come once the bankruptcy process determines next steps and additional measures customers can take.
