N.J. virtual dental care firm adds former Byte exec to leadership team

Dentistry.One, a Metuchen-based virtual-first dental care solution introduced by MouthWatch, recently welcomed Jodi Maggin, a former senior executive at Byte, to the company’s leadership team as vice president, business development.

In her newly created role, Maggin will help drive company growth by developing business opportunities and strategic partnerships with individuals and organizations committed to improving patient health outcomes, including dental plans, employers, benefits brokers and health care consumers.

“We are thrilled to welcome Jodi to the team,” Brant Herman, founder and CEO of MouthWatch and Dentistry.One, said. “Her proven track record of bringing virtual dental care to today’s patients aligns perfectly with our strategic priority of expanding access and improving health outcomes through Dentistry.One. We look forward to leveraging Jodi’s experience to accelerate the recognition of Dentistry.One as an integral part of a dental benefits portfolio or as a cost-effective standalone benefit.”

MouthWatch introduced Dentistry.One in 2023. With a nationwide network of online dentists, personalized care coordination, oral health coaching and benefits navigation to help patients more easily obtain care, Dentistry.One helps individuals prioritize their oral health.

“It is an honor to join Dentistry.One and contribute to the growth of an organization so passionately committed to improving oral health through innovative technology,”  Maggin said. “A virtual care option is expected by many of today’s health care consumers, and vital for the over 70 million Americans living in dental provider shortage areas. I look forward to collaborating with our stakeholders who share a mutual interest in making dental care more accessible and convenient for everyone.”

Maggin previously served as vice president of business development and strategic partnerships at Byte, an online platform offering a nationwide network of licensed orthodontists and dentists who prescribe at-home treatment plans for invisible aligners. In this role, she created the Business-to-Business Group division, building strategic partnerships with employee and member-driven groups, including insurance carriers, insurance brokers, resellers and other key alliances.

Prior to Byte, Maggin held leadership positions at several health care insurance organizations, where she was responsible for building strategic relationships, driving sales and developing business opportunities.

“50-70% of the U.S. population does not regularly see a dentist, which can affect a person’s overall health and wellness,” Maggin said. “I look forward to working with organizations and groups that recognize the importance of oral health and are looking to enhance their existing dental benefits offering or add an alternative oral health solution.”
