At an in-person appointment with your practice, your doctor will provide you with directions on how to use the DM ScanBox and how to get started using the DM app.
DentalMonitoring for Patients
Welcome to your cutting-edge orthodontic experience
You’re here because your practice cares about your comfort and care. Enjoy the ultimate convenience of remote monitoring with DentalMonitoring.
How it works
With the DentalMonitoring app and DM ScanBox, you can now send in photos of your teeth and communicate with your practice securely from the comfort of your home — or anywhere in the world.
Next, you’ll take photos of your smile from anywhere using the DM ScanBox (at the frequency your doctor recommends) and send them in through the app.
Your doctor will receive your photos to review your treatment and ensure it’s on track without the need for unnecessary trips to the office. The doctor will send communication and guidance on your treatment via the app.
Over time, you can monitor the progress of your treatment with our photo time lapse technology that shows you how your teeth are moving towards your goal.

Frequently Asked Questions
The DM App is prescribed by an orthodontist or a dentist for patients who are in, or about to begin dental treatment. As a patient, you can download the DM App from the App Store or Google Play Store for free. When your monitoring starts, your doctor will send you an activation email with everything you need to log in.
There are many ways to take a DM scan, depending on your treatment. Don’t worry, it’s easier than you may think. Video tutorials and reminders will be available once you log into the DM app.
Your doctor will send updates and instructions based on your DM scans. For example, if your oral hygiene is declining due to aligner wear, they will let you know areas that you may need to focus when brushing. Or, if your aligner is not fitting properly, they may let you know that you need to continue wearing the current aligner longer or use your chewies.
