Dandy (Orthly) Review: Brutally Honest Review

DANDY (Formely ORTHLY) review: Cheapest price, best customer service & best technology?


In our opinion, AlignerCo (And Straight My Teeth) is the best option on the market right now for multiple reasons. In this DANDY (formerly known as Orthly) review, we will tell you the reasons why we came to that conclusion. We tested pretty much all the options out there to make sure we understand exactly the differences between them and AlignerCo ( and Straight my teeth if you live in EUROPE) are clearly the winners.

In this post, we are going to describe why exactly we came to that conclusion.





Top reasons why DANDY is a good option.


 t#1 It is cheaper than Smile Direct Club and Invisalign. With Invisalign, it will cost you a minimum $5000 and with Smile direct club it will cost you around $2500. With Dandy (Orthly), the cost is $1900! There are cheaper options out there though, AlignerCo is the cheapest if you live in America and Straight My Teeth if you live in Europe. The appointment at the dental office includes a full dental health check-up and x-rays.


#2 They have good customer service! There are TONS of horror stories out there from people who ordered from Smile Direct Club and never got their Aligners, some waited for months before getting them, most of them had problems with refunds, etc. This is why it is important to go with a company with great customer service. Dandy (orthly) aligners have good customer service so you don’t have to worry about anything.


#3 Thin and transparent aligners. Let’s be honest you don’t want anybody noticing you are wearing teeth aligners…And the good news is Dandy (orthly) teeth aligners are really transparent.


#4 Full money-back guarantee. You basically have no risk because they offer a money-back guarantee.


#5 Free retainers. For some weird reason, some of the other companies charge you at the end of the treatment for the retainer you have to wear. Some charge up to $200.



Detailed pricing


Aligner Impression Kits

DANDY (orthly) impression kits are free and come with 2 pairs of impressions.


upfront fast track kit

The complete package Includes everything in one purchase; including the impression kit, clear aligners and one set of retainers,  for only $1900!


invisible aligners

Their online invisible aligners cost $1,900 . Payment plans are optional and start at around $88 per month, using a third party financing company.



Dandy (Orthly) provides free retainers with your clear aligners purchase.




Because every person’s smile has different needs, the duration of the program and the design of the clear aligners will depend on YOUR needs

The length of the program will depend on your particular situation, but the average time span with DANDY (orthly) is about 30 weeks, wearing one set every two weeks.


Even if you have a severe problem that requires a longer than an average timeframe, you will still pay $1900!




You will have to go on their website and try to order to know for sure if they ship to your country. If you live in Europe, consider Straight My Teeth as they are cheaper and are based over there. 


Overall Experience


Once you order you will be amazed by how everything happens so fast. You will receive your impression kit a few days after payment, then you get your aligners about one-two after you send them back the impression kit.




smilelove 3 steps




Step 1: Order your impression kit

After you make your payment online, DANDY (Orthly) will then send you your impression kit. The impression kit consists of taking a mold of your teeth then returning everything back to DANDY for them to show you how your smile will look once everything is over.




Step 2: Look at the preview of how your straight teeth will look like

DANDY will then send you a preview of what your teeth will look like once everything is done. You will be happy at this step because this is where you get to SEE what it will look like in the end. This is one of the advantages of these at-home teeth-straightening aligners; you get to see in ADVANCE what it will look like in the end.

**With AlignerCo, if you don’t like how your teeth will look once the treatment is completely done, you can ask for a refund and they will refund EVERYTHING. With the other companies, you would have to pay a penalty for that**

Here is an example of what you will receive:


smilelove treatment preview

You will get to see how everything will look like from start to finish, every step during the process.

Again, with Alignerco if for ANY reasons you are not satisfied with the treatment preview outcome, you can get a refund. Most of the other companies DON’T offer this. This is one of the reasons why we like Alignerco so much.


Step 3: Get your aligners in the mail and start wearing them.

This is the point where you will receive all your aligners in a box and you will be ready to start your treatment. You will find the aligners uncomfortable at first but you will quickly get used to them.

In our opinion, AlignerCo is the best option on the market if you live in America and Straight My Teeth is the best option if you live in Europe. They are the cheapest, they have the best customer service by far, and their aligners are super transparent. What else could you hope for?

The only reason these two companies are cheaper is that they are new companies and because nobody knows about them, they need to compete on price. They NEED to offer a better price and better customer service to differentiate from the other at-home teeth aligners, which is great news for you.

We hope this DANDY review was helpful and that you learned a lot. As we said, if you are looking for a cheaper option and live in America you should get AlignerCo and if you live in Europe you should get Straight My Teeth.
