About the Smile Comfortably Challenge
We believe that everyone deserves to feel good about their smile, regardless of their budget. That is why we created the Smile Comfortably Challenge. Each month, we help a few individuals finance clear aligner treatment using a product such as Candid or SmileDirectClub. In exchange, we ask participants to help us and our visitors by documenting and sharing their teeth straightening journey in a series of web videos. You can checkout current and past participant Smile Comfortably Challenge videos on our Youtube page.
How much money can I save by participating?
Smile Prep reimburses challenge participants $150, paid out in three installments over the course of your treatment.
Who qualifies to apply?
Anyone over the age of 18 who currently resides in the US or Canada, and who plans to begin treatment with an eligible clear aligner brand, or who has started treatment with an eligible brand within the previous 30 days, is welcome to apply to participate in the Smile Comfortably Challenge. We will do our best to accommodate as many applicants as possible, but we cannot guarantee that all applicants will be chosen to participate at this time.
If you're already several months into your treatment plan, you are unfortunately no longer eligible for this program. However, we do invite you to leave a written clear aligner review in exchange for a $20 Amazon or Starbucks gift card.
Why does Smile Prep want participants to document and share their experiences?
At Smile Prep, our mission is to make comfortable, confident smiles a reality for as many people as possible. A large part of that mission involves informing and educating our visitors about new and promising dental products.
We do our best to provide the most honest and accurate product reviews possible, but we also recognize that our own opinions are no substitute for the lived experiences of our visitors. By sharing your journey, you’re helping thousands of others make smart and informed decisions about their teeth.
What sort of documentation is required?
We ask that you record and submit three short videos describing your experience over the course of your care.
- An initial video prior to starting treatment
- A second video midway through treatment
- A final video at the conclusion of your treatment
In addition, we ask that you provide before and after photos and complete a short product review following treatment.
When will I receive my reimbursement?
Participants are reimbursed in three equal installments corresponding to each of the video submissions.
How does Smile Prep fund the Smile Comfortably Challenge?
When you or someone else purchases one of the products that we review on our site, we often earn a small commission. This money goes primarily toward running our business. However, we are able to allocate a portion of our profits toward supporting the Smile Comfortably Challenge.
