Hi Sean,

Thanks for the question.

Yes, Smile Prep does receive commissions from several of the clear aligner companies that we review. If a visitor clicks on one of the provider links and purchases a product, we often receive a flat fee or percentage based commission.

We try to be transparent about this by including a blue banner at the top of every review or article that includes one or more commissionable links (see attached image for an example). If you see this banner at the top of a review, you should assume that SmilePrep is partnered with, and likely receives payment from, the company being reviewed.

These partnerships are important to Smile Prep for a few different reasons.

  • First, they enable us to stay current on product/pricing changes and special offers on aligners, so that our information is always up-to-date.
  • Second, they provide us with the funds to retain a small writing, development and design staff, which makes it possible to maintain the site, update existing reviews, and to continue publish new guides/reviews.
  • Third, they make it possible to offer financial incentives for aligner customers to share their treatment experience through our Honest Smiles Program and our Customer Review Program. In addition to sharing these videos and reviews on our website and youtube channel, these programs help us better understand the perspective/experience of actual customers, and thereby improve the quality and usefulness of our reviews.
