CVS Health and Walgreens have recently launched pilot programs that offer dental related services to consumers in select locations in the United States. CVS has installed in-store kiosks for SmileDirectClub, a tele-orthodontic startup that offers plastic aligners for straightening teeth direct to the consumer, while Walgreens has opened an Aspen Dental office inside a Florida location. Aspen Dental hopes that the collaboration will provide easier access to dental care for retired and elderly residents. Ultimately, the companies’ goal is intended to attract and retain new customers who may be paying out of pocket for the dental services they need.
