Dental Monitoring

At Smiles by Smith Orthodontics, we make patient health, safety and comfort our top priority. We understand that our patients have busy schedules, which is why Dr. Bradley D. Smith and our team work with the DentalMonitoring app and ScanBoxpro to make your orthodontic treatment in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, even easier!

How It Works

The DentalMonitoring (DM) app is designed to help our orthodontist monitor your progress without making you schedule a visit to our office. With the help of ScanBoxpro, a device that will help you take high-quality, full images of your teeth, you can send our team photos of your smile. The app can also be used to communicate with our office quickly and easily from wherever you are!

  • Step One: When you begin your orthodontic treatment with our office, our orthodontist will introduce you to the DM app and your ScanBox and give you instructions for how to use them throughout your treatment.
  • Step Two: You take images of your teeth from the comfort of your home, or wherever you are and send them to our team using the DM app. Our orthodontist will let you know how frequently these check-ins should occur based on your unique treatment plan.
  • Step Three: We will receive your photos and be able to examine them to ensure your treatment is on track and there are no orthodontic concerns that would need to be addressed in person. Our orthodontist will be able to give you further directions or advice through the app.

Perks of the DentalMonitoring System

Some of the benefits of the DM app are:

  1. Appointments when you need them. You can know that you will not be scheduled for any unnecessary appointments. Our orthodontist will let you know if you need professional, in-person care based on your photos.
  2. Freedom of movement. You don’t have to worry about missing orthodontic visits by traveling. We can keep track of your progress from wherever you are.
  3. Watch your progress! You can use the DM app to see a time lapse of your progress and watch your smile become straighter and healthier.
  4. Maintain your privacy. The DM app is HIPAA and GDPR compliant, meaning your personal information is secure.
