Byte was founded on the commitment to improve access and affordability to orthodontic care using a nationwide network of licensed dentists and orthodontists. It offers effective treatment planning and an easy-to-use clear aligner solution delivered directly to a consumer’s home. The CEO of Byte, Neeraj Gunsagar, and the existing management team will continue to operate the business.

This combination provides Byte with unmatched resources and R&D capabilities that allow us to reach additional customers and accelerate our mission of changing the world one smile at a time. The transaction enhances our ability to offer affordable care to patients and increases awareness of the overall benefits of oral care. Our team is committed to driving our strong growth, and we are delighted to join the Dentsply Sirona family as we execute on our shared mission.”

The transaction closed on December 31, 2020.
