SmileDirectClub announces expansion into New Zealand
SmileDirectClub announced earlier its recent expansion into New Zealand. Following the launch of SmileDirectClub in Australia in May 2019, the brand opened its first SmileShops in Auckland and Wellington, New Zealand in September, followed by a new location in Christchurch, with plans to expand its footprint in the country over the coming months. "Building on consumer acceptance of remote clear aligner therapy in the U.S., Canada, U.K. and Australia, we are proud to extend SmileDirectClub's safe, consumer-friendly teledentistry platform to locally licensed dentists and orthodontists in New Zealand. Through our affiliated network of doctors and 100% vertically aligned business model, SmileDirectClub increases access to affordable orthodontic care, already helping more than 700,000 people achieve a confidence-boosting smile," said Kay Oswald, President of International at SmileDirectClub.
