SmileDirectClub, the market leader and pioneer of doctor-directed, remote invisible aligner therapy, will create 2,010 new jobs in Nashville and Antioch over the next five years.
This is SmileDirectClub’s second expansion in Middle Tennessee in two years. In February 2017, the company announced a $4.5 million expansion across two Davidson County locations, which supported the creation of nearly 450 new jobs. Currently, SmileDirectClub employs more than 1,600 people in the Nashville area.

Utilizing its teledentistry platform, SmileDirectClub connects customers with a duly licensed dentist or orthodontist in their state who remotely creates a personalized SmilePlan and continually monitors their progress.
With an average treatment length of six months, SmileDirectClub straightens smiles for 60 percent less and three times faster than traditional braces.
