These technical illustrations were used in a dental product instruction manual for SmileDirectClub. The product was designed to spread the patient’s lips apart so progress photos and dental work could be done more easily.

For this project, I personally used the product and tested it, ensuring I was familiar enough to illustrate the steps clearly. I also took photos and used those as a reference.

This product (and most dental products!) can be intimidating to patients, and the product can be confusing and uncomfortable to use. My goal was to clearly and simply illustrate how to use a complicated product, and make it seem doable and not scary.
