(See membership Upgrading section form more details)

Membership Upgradign

A La Carte SmartPalate purchases can be upgraded to a Student Membership within the 30-day manufacturer warranty period. During that time, the Smartpalate’s purchase price will be applied to the overall Membership costs. A $10 discount will be applied to the MMR for those who decide to upgrade after the 30-day manufacturing period from an individual SmartPalate to a Membership.

Shipping & Activation

The membsership shpping cost is a flat fee of $40. The 1-User system will ship within 1-2 business days of the activation date. The cost of shipping covers four shipments: 1) the 1-User System 2) the Dental Packet 3) return shipping for the Dental Packet with the stone model inside 4) the finished SmartPalate to the member. All shipments are sent to the shipping address listed on the Order Form. Manufacturing and testing takes an estimated 5-7 business days, after which the custom SmartPalate will be shipped with an estimated shipping period of 2-7 days. The entire startup process, from submiting the Order Form to receiving the finished SmartPalate, takes 3-4 weeks on average in normal circumstances. A 30-day return period is provided to make up for this startup time (see section “30-Day Return Period”). Talk with a Membership Specialist about how to save additional time on the setup period. A La Carte purchases will incur additional shipping costs. Activation is a one time fee of $59.

Cancellation

The following is detailed information of CompleteSpeech’s cancellation plicy:

Process & Early Cancellation

Canceling is a three step process: 1) request a Memebsehip Cancellation Form (No other medium of cancellation will be accepted to initiate the cancellation process. An email or verbal request to

cancel is insufficiente) 2) review, sign and return the cancellation form before the next invoice date/end of the membership (in order to not get billed on the next billing date) 3) return the 1-User System by or before the System Return Due Date given on the Cancellation Form. Canceling at any point during the initial 6-month minimum period will incur a cancellation fee equal to the total remaining balance of the initial membership term. The 1-User System must be returned in working condition to CompleteSpeech by the System Return Due Date outlined in the Membership Cancellation Form to

The 1-User System must be returned in working condition to CompleteSpeech by the System Return Due Date outlined in the Membership Cancellation Form to finalize cancellation. SmartPalates and PracticePalates DO NOT need to be returned. The Membsership Cancellation Form is insufficient to finalize cancellation and only begins the process. The Cancellation Form AND the complete 1-User system must be received to finalize the membership cancellation. If a Membership Cancellation form has been submitted and the complete 1-user system is in the possession of CompleteSpeech by or before the return date, the account will then be officially canceled, and the member will no longer be responsible for payments to the account. If the Membership Cancellation Form or the complete 1-User System is not received in the described time frame, the membership will continue, and the member will be charged monthly until the Membership Cancellation Form is submitted and the 1-User System is returned and in the possession of CompleteSpeech.

30-Day Return Periord

Once a Cancellation Form is submitted, the member will have the remaining days covered by the last payment plus an additional 30 days in which to return the 1-User System. This time is to allow the member to finish using the SmartPalate and to account for the return shipping of the 1-User System to CompleteSpeech. The last day of the 30-Day period is the System Return Due Date by which date CompleteSpeech must receive all 1-User System components that need to be returned by that date. CompleteSpeech is not responsible for lost or damaged Equipment during transit from the member to CompleteSpeech.

Equipment must be returned in good, working condition. A thorough test will be conducted to assure the good working condition of all returned components. Replacement costs for broken or missing equipment is due 15 days after the 30-Day return period/System Return Due Date. Equipment that is returned broken will fall under the Gold Warranty replacement terms. Fees for broken or missing equipment are as follows:


Special Considerations

The following are additional important details to consider when starting a membership:

Software Minimum Requirements

  • PC ONLY (SmartPalate software is NOT compatible with Mac)
    • Runs on Windows 7, 8 or 10 (Windows 10 may affect audio playback)
    • Talk with a Membership Specialist about how some people have been able to use a Mac with the SmartPalate Software (Not guaranteed)
  • Ram: 4GB (minimum)
  • I/O Ports: 1 standard USB Port (2 USB Ports for split screen feature)
  • Working Sound Card is required for Record/Playback features

SmartPalate Care

The SmartPalate requires special care and handling to ensure proper functionality. Follow these rules to keep the SmartPalate system in good long lasting condition. Users must adhere to the following guidelines:

  • ALWAYS clean the SmartPalate mouthpiece gently after each use
  • ALWAYS remove the SmartPalate by placing two fingers on each side of the acrlic material (by the rear molars) and pull down, applying increased force as needed.
  • ALWAYS store the SmartPalate System equipment safely in between uses
  • DO NOT allow water near the SmartPalate blue plastic housing or cord
  • DO NOT twist, bend or fold the flexible strip or any other item more than necessary for regular use
  • NEVER submerge the SmartPalate blue plastic housing in water
  • NEVER remove the SmartPalate by pulling on the cord or blue plastic housing
  • NEVER bite, chew, or grind teeth while wearing the SmartPalate 
Use the following link for videos on proper care and cleaning: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLDA17870F4587E822 SmartPalate Software On rare occasion, personalized settings such as computer restrictions, programs, security settings or other unknown causes may affect the features and functionality of the SmartPalate software. Due to such unique occurrences, the software cannot be guaranteed to have full functionality and capability on every computer. These rare occurrences are not considered reasonable grounds for early cancellation. If CompleteSpeech has done its due diligence to resolve incompatibility issues and the software is still not functional, the situation will be evaluated on a case by case basis and steps will be taken to resolve the situation. If one of the three following conditions occurs, a membership can be granted early cancellation without penalty:
  • The majority of features and functions are not functioning
  • Visual feedback of tongue to palate is not functioning
  • Custom tongue targets cannot be created
Special Adjustments: In certain cases, adjustments must be made to create SmartPalates for individuals with orthodontia (braces, palatal expanders, etc).

missing teeth, changing teeth/palate, or small, smooth or flat teeth. These situations can generally be accommodated so long as an accurate stone model can be made. Adjustments will be required if a stone model has abnormalities, such as bubbles or excess material that do not reflect the true palate of the indiviual.

Due to these required adjustments, CompleteSpeech is not responsible for replacing loose or tight fitting mouthpieces. In most of these cases, a small amount of denture adhesive or a slight trimming will resolve problems with a loose fitting SmartPalate during therapy.Individuals should consult with CompleteSpeech to decide if using a SmartPalate should be delayed until after braces are removed.

Stone Models: A stone model of the upper palate must be sent to CompleteSpeech for the patient who will be working with the SmartPalate. This model can be made by a dentist or orthodontist, typically at a cost of $40-$65 each. The quality of stone model impressions can vary based on a number of factors. Bubbles that form during the drying process or excess material on the teeth, gums or palate of the stone model are the most common issues that may arise. A stone model made from a weaker or crumbly material, such as plaster, can cause more serious problems in the manufacturing process. A hard stone is best; we recommend Dental Stone. Additionally, sharp edges of the model may be sanded down for easier and safer handling with the stone model. CompleteSpeech is not responsible for replacing SmartPalates due to poor impressions or making exceptions of payments or lost time. CompleteSpeech is not responsible for lost or damaged Stone Models during transit from the member to CompleteSpeech.

Allergies

Medical adhesive acrylic or polyimide (Kapton) is used to make the SmartPalate mouthpieces. Individuals should not use a SmartPalate if they have known allergies to these materials.

Refunds 

CompleteSpeech has a general no refund policy. A 
petition can be made and sent to CompleteSpeech by email to contactus@completespeech.com explaining

the situation and why the member should be refunded. CompleteSpeech will contact the member addressing the petition within 5 business days.

International Memberships

International Student Memberships will have a customized shipping amount and a one-time $99 activation fee. International Student Memberships are a 7-month minimum term. This must be paid up front with the shipping and activation totals. No discounts are available for International Student Memberships aside from any monthly promotions of flash sales. A Student Membership Order Form with full payment must be received before any part of the SmartPalate System is shipped. In contrast to the standard student membership, the SmartPalate System will not be shipped upon activation and a dental packet is not available due to cost and complications of international shipping. It is possible that fees for duties and taxes will be required by a local Customs office. Any such additional cost will be the responsibility of the Member.

In place of the dental packet, an email will be sent with instructions for the dentist or orthodontist to make the upper palate impression. It is the member’s responsibility for packaging and shipping the stone model safely to CompleteSpeech. Once the dental mold is received and the SmartPalate is completed, the SmartPalate System and finished SmartPalate will ship together. International memberships also have the benefits of one free remake per year and member discounts, but shipping costs will have to be customized and paid before any products/replacements can be shipped to the member.

Accepted forms of international payment include major Credit Card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover), Cash (USD), Travelers Checks, or Western Unions “Send Money: In-Person Money Transfer: Money in Minutes” or “Next Day Service” or a similar service, so long as said service for pickup is within a 30-mile radius of CompleteSpeech (1049 S Orem Blvd, Orem UT 84058 USA). CompleteSpeech is not responsible for any lost or incomplete payments and will not give out its bank account number to any customer or organization for any reason. Any fees incurred by the previously mentioned services is at the expense of the Member.
