Smile GPS Dentists
At Smile GPS we undergo an intensive due diligence process for each of our offices and dentists. We do this because we want our patients to feel comfortable and confident choosing any of our dentists.
We don't just check them out ourselves either. Saying our dentists are screened and qualified because we say so means you have to trust us and trust the dentist. So, we've invested in third-party verification and credentialing for every one of our Smile GPS dentists.
This verification process is not just done at the beginning of each dentist's tenure with us but annually. We do this to verify that licenses are renewed and that disciplinary action remains at zero. We also annually validate that malpractice coverage is in place and that there has been no change in their history.
We use patient feedback to judge the quality of our members. If anyone has a disproportionate amount of negative feedback from the patients who use our services the dentist is removed from the program.
Dentists must apply to become a member of the Smile GPS program, which involves completing detailed applications and passing our rigorous screening process. Our Quality Assurance department is dedicated to the initial screening and continued monitoring of member dentists, which includes, but is not limited to:
Once dentists pass our screening requirements they pay a membership fee, which is billed on a per-lead basis. If any member fails to uphold our high standards (based on the criteria above or feedback from the consumers we match with their practice), they may be removed from the service. We do not dictate member dentists' fees, treatment options or the manner in which they practice.
Consumers who call us or visit our website are asked to provide information including their location, dental need, insurance, and voucher code when applicable. Based on the location entered, we provide a list of practices from which consumers may choose and share contact information between consumers and our dentists so that consumers can schedule an appointment.
You may ask, why we do all of this?
