Former SmileDirectClub employees grapple with lost jobs

Former employees of the now-defunct SmileDirectClub are dealing with the aftermath of losing their jobs due to the company’s closure.

SmileDirectClub announced Dec. 8 it would be shutting down its global operations immediately after efforts to recapitalize the business failed.

Workplace review site Comparably reports SmileDirectClub as having had more than 4,800 employees. The teledentistry company was also the 21st largest employer in Nashville, where it was headquartered, according to The Tennessean.

Workers laid off by the company as part of the closure have begun posting on LinkedIn that they are now looking for new work opportunities.

The Nashville mayor’s office partnered with the American Job Center and the Tennessee Department of Labor to host an information session Dec. 18 for former SmileDirectClub employees to learn about resources available to them.
